LOS ANGELES, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Scandal star Kerry Washington has reportedly welcomed baby No. 2.

Washington and Asomugha, a 35-year-old retired NFL player, married in Hailey, Idaho, in 2013. The actress gave birth to their first child, daughter Isabelle, in 2014, and confirmed her second pregnancy in May.

"I look a little curvier than usual," she told Entertainment Tonight the next month. "We're all really excited. We'll see how it all plays out. I'm an only child, so I'm like, 'What's this going to be like?' But I think it's going to be great."

"I'll be going back to work in July," the star added. "I'll be waddling my way around [Olivia Pope & Associates]."

Scandal completed a fifth season in May and will return for Season 6 in 2017. Washington said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September that they were coming up with creative ways to hide her pregnancy.

"[We're using] big coats, big bags. Hiding behind body parts of different actors," she revealed. "If I'm in the back of the room, it can be, like, somebody's leg and I'm positioned behind it. Lamps are good. Vases."
