Kerry Washington Feels "Blessed" Personally And Professionally

Kerry Washington is known for being very private when it comes to her personal life, but in a recent Q & A session she could not help but gush about how good her life is.

The 37 year-old actress is still feeling "blessed" after she recently gave birth to a healthy baby daughter, named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Washington sat down with The Los Angeles Times for her first interview since welcoming her first child this past April, to answer questions that were tweeted by eager fans of the hit political drama 'Scandal.'

One social media user asked, "Now that you're a mom will it be bittersweet to go back to work?"

"So tricky because you know I don't talk about this stuff," Washington replied.

"But I will say I feel really, really blessed," she continued. "I just feel really blessed that I'm kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life." You guys, that's a lot for Kerry Washington. Feel lucky."

Washington and her retired NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha first broke the news of becoming a mother at the start of last month, several weeks after giving birth. "Well...I still wont talk about my personal life on here ?? But...I see your tweets. And I am filled with gratitude! XO #HappyMothersDay." She tweeted.

The 'Django Unchained' actress, who is determined to keep her private affairs out of the public eye, says her tendency to do this derives from past experiences.

"I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it," Washington told Glamour in 2013. "But not for me. I learned through experience that it doesn't work for me to talk about my personal life."

"I've had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine," she said, referring to split from ex-fiancé David Moscow. "But I couldn't just turn around and say, 'I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.' So I just thought, 'OK, no more.'"
