Kerry Washington is mad in love with her beautiful baby daughter.

The Scandal star keeps very private when it comes to her personal life, so the fact that she even mentioned little Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha says so much about the joy she is experiencing as a new mother.

"My little girl is four months! She's fantastic," she gushed to E! News on the 2014 Emmys Red Carpet. "She's great. She's awesome!"

Washington told the Los Angeles Times last month that her life couldn't be more perfect these days.

"I feel really blessed," said the actress. "I know how extraordinary my life is right now, and how the opportunities I have are, so I'm very, very, very grateful."

The Scandal star is also looking fantastic just four months after giving birth, and her weight loss secret is not really a big secret.

"A lot of working out," she said. "That's it!"

Note that girls!

Washington recently enjoyed the pleasure of meeting President Barack Obama at a fundraiser held at the home of Scandal creator, Shonda Rhimes, and had only good things to say about the Commander-in-Chief.

"He's so kind. Shonda Rhimes had a wonderful fundraiser at her home that I cohosted and he was there," she told E! News. "He was being very kind and thanked us for being supportive of the Democratic Party."

The 37-year-old actress also gave a few hints about the upcoming season of Scandal. According to Washington, the relationship between her character, Olivia Pope, and Abby Whelan, played by Darby Stanchfield, will have a lot of surprises.

"There's a lot of Abby this season, which is really good because Abby and Olivia Pope have a very complicated relationship," she told E! News. "That's going to be yummy."

The fourth season of Scandal premieres Sept. 25 on ABC.
