Kerry Washington has given her first interview since giving birth to her daughter, Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha.
The 37-year-old star of TV drama Scandal answered fan questions for The Los Angles Times and was asked, "Now that you're a mom will it be bittersweet to go back to work?"
The notoriously private Washington said: "So tricky because you know I don't talk about this stuff. I will say I feel really, really blessed. I just feel really blessed that I'm kind of living extraordinary dreams come true in my work life and in my personal life."
Washington gave birth on April 21 and tweeted on Mother's Day: "Well . . . I still wont talk about my personal life on here. But . . . I see your tweets. And I am filled with gratitude! XO #HappyMothersDay."
The actress will be celebrating her first wedding anniversary with her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, later this month.
