Kerry Washington has always been secretive about her family life

For a while now, Washington has been very secretive about her life with her husband and kids. Until recent years, Washington rarely appeared with her husband in public as she does now.

As for her kids, she’s never had them in public and she’s never posted photos of them. Their daughter, Isabelle, was born in 2014. Their son, Caleb, was born in 2016. Washington also refers 13-year-old to Asomugha’s daughter from a previous relationship as her own daughter as well.

In October, she spoke about parenting and her kids in a rare moment. “We get sent by God the kids we need so we can grow in order to be the parents they need us to be. The children I got sent came in perfect, and I have to figure out how to grow and evolve so that I can support the truth of them. I’m in a constant state of learning and challenging myself to make room for their perfection and beauty,” she said.

Why Kerry Washington doesn’t post her children on social media

“I have moments where I take pictures or videos of one of my three amazing kids and I wanna post it online, and I tend to just send it to my parents or my shrink instead,” she said in an upcoming interview with Sunday Today. “I’m like, ‘My kids are so cute and I don’t wanna post about them, so look at how cute they are!’”

Washington says she goes around it through her private Instagram page. “I have a private Instagram for my shrink and he loves it!” Washington says, joking, “It’s not great when I get parenting feedback, incidentally, based on something he heard me [say] in the background of the video.”
