Kerry Washington and her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, have welcomed their second child. The Scandal star gave birth to son Caleb Kelechi Asomugha on Oct. 5, E! News reports.

Washington, 39, and Asomugha, 35, are already parents to a 2-year-old daughter, Isabelle.

In order to accommodate the actress' pregnancy, ABC opted to delay Scandal's sixth season to midseason, thus denying the world more instances of Washington awkwardly hiding her bump behind lamps. As a result, the season was cut from 22 to 16 episodes, which could be conducive to an uninterrupted run once the show returns in 2017.

The delay means Scandal's presidential election will no longer coincide with the real election in November, but Shonda Rhimes told Entertainment Weekly that the show will still pick up on Election Night when it returns.
