First, a trip to Disneyland. Now, the presidential seal of approval.
It’s been a heady week for Kerry Washington’s 3-month-old daughter, Isabelle Amarachi. At a Democratic National Committee fundraising dinner in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, President Obama thanked Washington for working on his campaigns and being “a great friend.”
“Plus,” the president added, “she showed me her baby pictures, and that is one cute baby!”
Isabelle, born April 21 to Washington and her husband, former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, has not yet been seen publicly and managed to elude cameras on a visit with Mom and Dad to Disneyland last Saturday.
