Scandal star Kerry Washington has a new baby boy

Kerry Washington has given birth to her second child, but in typical fashion kept news of the arrival of her son under wraps for nearly two weeks.

The birth certificate shows the actress and her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, welcomed their son Caleb Kalechi Asomugha on October 5.

The couple also has a two-year-old daughter but are famously protective of their privacy.

The actress jokingly denied she was pregnant in an interview with The Associated Press in August while promoting her work with a domestic violence charity.

Weeks later, she walked the Emmys red carpet in a custom black strapless gown with cutouts above her waist to accentuate her baby bump.
