The news comes after giving birth earlier in October
Kerry Washington just welcomed her first son earlier in October, but the actress is already planning on having an additional child.
An insider told E! News: “Kerry is very tired mainly from lack of sleep. She has taken some time off of her daily grind to relax and spend time with her children and family.
They are doing very good as a couple. They would like to have one more child.”
And the Scandal star – who shares two children with husband Nnamdi Asomugha – hopes to get back in shape sooner rather than later.
Another source revealed: “She has a trainer and eats really healthy. She is confident she will lose her baby weight quick like she did her first baby.”
This comes after she previously revealed to have received parenting tips from Shonda Rhimes.
She said before her new baby arrived: “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. No just logistically but emotionally and spiritually.
I’m an only [child] so every time the family grows it brings up a little bit of anxiety. But it’s fantastic. I’m really happy. We don’t know [the gender], yeah. I’m open – honestly, healthy, happy baby – that’s what we want. 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.”
