Kerry Washington Corrects Craig Melvin After He Calls Her a Mom of Two: ‘I Am a Mother of Three’

During a Monday appearance on the Today show to promote her new Broadway play American Son, the 41-year-old actress corrected Craig Melvin when he referred to her as “a mother of two.”

“I am a mother of three,” said Washington, who shares son Caleb Kelechi, 2, and daughter Isabelle Amarachi, 4½, with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.
