When it comes to being a two-time mother, Kerry Washington has it handled.

Indeed, the actress recently gave birth to her second child!

One of the more private celebrities in Hollywood, Washington and husband Nnamdi Asomugha actually welcomed this baby boy into the world back on October 5.

His name is Caleb Kelechi.

E! first learned of the exciting news today and broke it to the world now.

Other details – such as the child’s height and weight – were not immediately available.

Washington first showed off her baby bump in May at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.

They are also parents to a daughter named Isabelle.

Due to Washington’s pregnancy, ABC has postponed the return of Scandal to early 2017, a development that has left many Gladiators sad, but they all obviously understand.

It’s not believed that the pregnancy or any baby will be incorporated into any Shonda Rhimes storytelling, either.

Olivia Pope will have plenty on her mind when Scandal returns later this winter, but breastfeeding will not be among her concerns.

And while Washington has said very little about motherhood over the years, she did open up to The Los Angeles Times not long after giving birth for the first time.

"I will say I feel really, really blessed," she gushed at the time, adding:

"I just feel really blessed that I’m kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life."

Because E! doesn’t know how to handle it when a star is mum about a pregnancy, the outlet invented a source to comment on her expecting state earlier this year.

"She has been working out with different yoga methods and eating healthy," this anonymous insider said several weeks ago.

"She has always been very weight conscious so she knows exactly what she puts in her mouth all the time."

The insider added:

"Everyone that she works with has been really helpful. Kerry is in her third trimester at this point. Nnamdi would love a boy this time around if it happens! They are so in love with their daughter and can’t wait to expand the family."

Washington and Asomugha quietly got married in Hailey, Idaho in June 2013.

Please join us in sending the couple and its new bundle of miraculous joy your very best wishes.
