Kerry Washington had her baby!

TMZ got the "very secret" scoop, and now it's all over the Internet: The Scandal actress and her hubby, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, welcomed a baby girl on April 21, in Los Angeles. Yes, they managed to keep it quiet for two weeks, amazingly.

And the baby's name is... Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha.

This is the first child for Kerry, 37, and Nnamdi, 32. They tied the knot last June, and news broke out of their pregnancy in October.

As TMZ points out, this is "good news for Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes... no more shooting from the neck up or hiding Olivia Pope behind potted plants." Ha!

Off to update our Who's Pregnant in Hollywood gallery. See you there!

Congrats to the family!
