Kerry Washington is now a mother!

The 37 year-old actress gave birth to her first child almost two weeks ago, according to TMZ.

Washington and her retired NFL player husband Nnamdi Asomugha are parents to a healthy baby daughter called Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha  in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on April 21st.

Keeping things quiet is something the 'Scandal' actress has attempted to do before.

Last June (2013) Washington and the former San Francisco 49ers star secretly married in Blaine County, Idaho, without any public knowledge that the pair were even dating.

The actress's pregnancy was confirmed last October (2013), even though she was reportedly with child several months prior to this, and only commented on the news for the first time this past January at the Golden Globes.

While walking on the award show' red carpet, Washington told Ryan Seacrest, "I also feel like I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here."

In February the 'Django Unchained' actress held a star studded baby shower with her celebrity pals at Shonda Rhimes' Los Angeles home.

50 guests joined in with the festivities, including actresses Jane Fonda, Cicely Tyson and Tracee Ellis Ross, and Washington's 'Scandal' co-star Darby Stanchfield, at the garden party.

"She looked beautiful and had very little makeup on," a source said at the time. "She was with her mom Valerie and was met by several family members inside."

"Kerry looked ecstatic to be surrounded by so many family members and friends," the insider continued. "She loved mixing her work friends with her family and having everyone get to know each other. Shonda was very gracious to host everyone and Kerry was very appreciative."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
