Welcome to the world, baby gladiator! Olivia Pope — um, we mean Kerry Washington — secretly gave birth to a baby girl named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha nearly two weeks ago, according to TMZ. It seems that she followed suit of her super hush-hush marriage (which, we learned about a month after the "I dos" went down), and was able to successfully keep her bundle of joy under wraps for quite some time. Need more proof that Kerry's secret-keeping skills are as amazing as her acting chops? Well, before she threw that crazy down-low wedding, no one even knew the Scandal star was engaged! Olivia Pope would be impressed.
Baby Isabelle is Kerry's first child with husband of less than a year, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha. News leaked last July Fourth that Washington and her man tied the knot on June 24 in an extremely private ceremony in Hailey, Idaho.

If Isabelle (we'd like to imagine Kerry and her hubs will call her "Izzy" or "Belle," though) is anything like her mom, she'll be a venerable fashion force. We're already dying to see the sure-to-be-stylish celebrity child as a flower girl! Mini-Marchesa á la Kerry at the 2013 Emmy's? Yes please.
Speaking of the brand-new mom's 2013 Emmy's red carpet look (above), we must admit that it was probably one of the most wedding-worthy maternity looks we've ever seen. Pregnant brides take note: An empire waist, flattering neckline, and generously flowy fabric are great for walking down the aisle with a baby on board.
Congrats to Kerry, we're so excited to see little Isabelle!
