Kerry Washington Welcomes First Daughter


Scandal star Kerry Washington and husband Nnamdi Asomugha, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback, have welcomed their first child, according to TMZ.

Washington gave birth to daughter Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha nearly two weeks ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on April 21.

The couple wed on June 24, 2013 in Blaine County, Idaho after first dating in 2012.

The 32-year-old three-time Pro Bowl star played with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him following his graduation from UC Berkeley in 2003, for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for two before signing with the 49ers in April. The bookish athlete is no stranger to showbiz, either, having scored acting gigs on The Game, Friday Night Lights and Leverage in recent years.

Like his bride, Asomugha is also a dedicated activist and philanthropist and he has participated in the Clinton Global Initiative every year since 2009.

Washington, 37, went from generally lovely actress to mega-star over the past year thanks to her breakout roles playing not-to-be-messed-with political fixer Olivia Pope on ABC's Scandal and Jamie Foxx's enslaved wife Broomhilda von Shaft in Django Unchained.
