"Scandal," actress, Kerry Washington, gave birth to a baby girl at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA , and her unusual (middle) name was released Friday, May 2, according to the Christian Post.

Washington and husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, 32 former NFL player, have kept their personal life private. They were married in June of 2013.

It wasn't until the Golden Globes 2014 that Washington showed her baby bump, wearing a stunning Balenciaga gown.

The little bundle of joy was born April 21 and her name is Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha.

According to, the name Amarachi originates from the Igbo people of south eastern Nigeria and means "God's Grace" or "Grace of God". It is a combination of two words "Amara" and "Chi". "Amara" by itself means "grace" and "Chi" by itself means "God".

Check out some photos of Washington before giving birth. She looks amazing in each one.

Kerry, 37, makes motherhood look wonderful and exciting.

Congratulations to Kerry and Nnamdi and may God's grace keep them and their new baby girl.
