Congratulations to Kerry Washington.
The actress gave birth to a baby boy, Caleb Kelechi Asomugha, on October 5, according to E! News.
This is the second child for Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha together; they have a daughter, Isabelle, born in 2014.
Washington is big on keeping family life private. She hid her baby bump so well on the hit ABC show ‘Scandal’ that some folks didn’t know she was pregnant. Fans began to suspect when Olivia Pope’s return for Season 6 was delayed until January.
Random sidebar: I can’t talk about Kerry Washington without discussing the obvious similarities in our names. I remember seeing the very young Washington for the first time in the 2006 movie ‘Lift.’ In the movie, Washington works at an expensive Boston department store, using her knowledge of fashion and security to steal clothing from other stores. In her inner-city neighborhood, she resells her wares to friends and family while struggling to connect with her mother. Right then, I knew she would be a star, like for real, it’s that good. I also knew at that moment that I would live with the burden of having to specify my name!
Congrats, Kerry and Kelechi!
From Teri Washington…that’s T as in Tom……
