No “Scandal” here: Kerry Washington has reportedly given birth to her first child.

TMZ reports that she and her husband welcomed a daughter, named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, on April 21 and has kept the news a secret… until now.

While the notoriously private star kept quiet about her relationship and marriage to NFL alum Nnamdi Asomugha, her pregnancy was a little harder to keep.

That said, it was handled (pun intended) on her ABC hit by hiding the actress behind coats and by having her sit behind desks for the tail end of the abbreviated third season.

“I feel very grateful that we have such an amazing team that was able to protect the character within the context of what the actress was going through,” Washington told “The Hollywood Reporter.”

As one of ABC’s biggest hits, “Scandal” will without a doubt return for season four next four, though not with departing castmate Columbus Short.
