Kerry Washington named her baby after her grandmother.

During an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Thursday (31.07.14), Kerry revealed to Jimmy that she had heard he and wife Molly McNearney named their daughter Jane after his grandmother and remarked ''Mine is too,'' referring to her own daughter and granny, both called Isabelle.

Jimmy said: ''Your baby's name is Isabelle and mine is Jane. We should swap them and see if our families notice!''

Kerry - who married Isabelle's father Nnamdi Asomugha earlier this year - also thanked the chat show host for sending her some of her favourite foods while she was pregnant.

She said: ''You did something very kind last time I came [in February]. There's nothing more kind to do for a pregnant lady than [to give her] a box full of frozen deliciousness. It was amazing!''

And Kerry had high praise for President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, saying: ''He and his amazing wife, they're just genuine, authentic, fantastic people who are trying to do their best for the country. They're awesome!''
