Kerry Washington is a new mom, reports say.

The 37-year-old "Scandal" star welcomed a baby girl named Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha on April 21 in Los Angeles, TMZ reports. People magazine confirmed the news, but did not quote the actress or her spokesperson.

Washington has not publicly confirmed the news. It is the first child for the actress and her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Rumors about Washington's pregnancy first began in October and the actress later showed off her baby bump at the Golden Globe awards in January. Washington and Asomugha tied the knot in secret in June 2013.

"Scandal" recently wrapped up its third season (check out a RECAP of the finale here). Washington's co-star, Columbus Short, announced on April 25 that he is exiting the series.
