In what can be considered an Olivia Pope, covert-style move, Scandal star Kerry Washington gave birth to a baby girl two weeks ago and no one knew about it! According to TMZ, Washington and her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, welcomed Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha on April 21.

Those Scandal skills definitely were in full effect, with not one person at Cedars Sinai hospital leaking information about the child’s birth. I’m going to assume confidentiality agreements were enlisted. Maintaining privacy is nothing new to Washington: She never announced her marriage last June and also kept her pregnancy a secret until her baby bump was showing.

The next time you hear anything about little Isabelle, she’ll probably be graduating from college.

Congrats to Kerry and Nnamdi!
