Kerry Washington has welcomed her second child. The Scandal star gave birth to her and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha's son on October 5, and have chosen to name him Caleb Kelechi, E! News reports.

The happy couple - who already have two-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi - have been really excited about the arrival of their little boy and Kerry has been getting parenting advice from Shonda Rhimes and her therapist.

She revealed: "I've really leaned heavily on my boss' experience. I consider myself busy, but Shonda has about four of five shows, three kids ... She says, 'If you feel like you have just the right amount of help, then you don't have enough.' My therapist said this too. You need a lot of support. Not just logistically but emotionally and spiritually."

However, the 39-year-old actress previously admitted she was "anxious" about welcoming another child into the world. She said: "I'm an only [child] so every time the family grows it brings up a little bit of anxiety".
