Fans were really confused when Kerry Washington said she was a ‘mother of three!’ Did the star have a secret baby? Because as far as everyone else is aware, she only has two kids!
As you may know, the Scandal actress and her hubby Nnamdi Asomugha, are the proud parents of son Caleb, 2 and daughter Isabelle, 4!
However, while a guest on the Today show, Washington corrected Craig Melvin when he mentioned she had two kids, saying that she was actually a ‘mother of three.’

Immediately, people on social media started to freak out! After all, this year has been filled with secret engagements and pregnancies and whirlwind romances.
That being said, it wouldn’t be out of the question for Kerry to have had another bundle of joy while no one was paying attention.
‘Mother of THREE…? When did this happen?!? I need answers!’ fellow actress Holland Reid tweeted, joining the confused and shook waves of fans.
It turns out that no, she did not give birth to another baby but that she has a stepchild.
It is however still unclear if it’s with her former fiance David Moscow or if Nnamdi has a kid from a previous relationship that Kerry loves as much as her own.
As for the reason why she stopped by the Today show, Kerry was there to promote her Broadway play, American Son.
‘It is definitely, for me, one of the most challenging projects I have ever taken on as an actor. It is very special to me. It is a really beautiful play about parenting and about love, about identity and race. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world that I get to do it 8 times a week. And also…it is really hard!’ the star revealed.
