Los Angeles - Kerry Washington feels "really, really blessed" to be a mother.

The Scandal actress has spoken for the first time about seven-week-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi - her first child with husband Nnmadi Asomugha - admitting she is overjoyed with her new arrival.

The notoriously private star rarely comments on her personal life and played coy when a fan asked her if it was bittersweet to return to work after becoming a mother.

In an online fan Q&A with the Los Angeles Times newspaper, Kerry diplomatically responded: "So tricky because you know I don't talk about this stuff. But 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."

The 37-year-old star was first rumoured to be pregnant in October 2013 but didn't acknowledge the speculation until January's Golden Globe Awards, where she sported a large baby bump.

Likewise, Kerry remained mum on the birth of baby Isabelle, with details only emerging weeks after she was born, but the actress acknowledged fans' Mother's Day well-wishes last month.

She wrote on Twitter: "Well...I still wont talk about my personal life on here But...I see your tweets. And I am filled with gratitude! XO #HappyMothersDay."
