Kerry Washington gave birth to a daughter on April 21, according to People and TMZ. Her name? Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha. It's the first child for Washington and her husband, former San Francisco 49s cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who married secretly last July.

So what does Amarachi mean?

According to

Amarachi originates from the Igbo people of south eastern Nigeria and means "God's Grace" or "Grace of God". It is a combination of two words "Amara" and "Chi". "Amara" by itself means "grace" and "Chi" by itself means "God".

Congrats to Kerry and Nnamdi!
