Kerry Washington was the picture of autumn perfection in New York on Monday.
The 41-year-old stunner was promoting her new play American Son and during a stop at the Today Show, she casually slipped in that she has three children, not two, as was previously believed.
The Scandal alum is set to star in an emotional stage production about an interracial couple who goes in search of answers after their son goes missing.

During her segment on the show there was a bit of confusion over how many children the star has.
The moment came when the host began a question with the phrase ‘you’re a mother of two.’
‘I am a mother of three,’ Kerry corrected.
The host quickly apologized and went on with the segment but some fans were understandably confused.
One fan tweeted: ‘Mother of THREE…..? When did this happen?!? I need answers!’
The actress and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha tied the knot in 2013 and have just two children together, Isabelle, four, and Caleb, two.
What? The actress corrected the Today Show host when he said she was a mother of two, saying she has three children
Sources: A source told E! News after the segment that Kerry actually has a stepchild
A source told E! News, however, that ‘Kerry has a stepchild.’
Back when the couple got married, there were whispers that Nnamdi had a child from a previous relationship and it sounds like the star all but confirmed it.
Kerry was spotted leaving the show on a brisk fall morning in a pair of tailored boot cut jeans that were long enough to cover her shoes.

Waves of brunette locks framed Kerry’s flawless face with one side tucked behind her ear revealing a pair of silvery hoop earrings.

On her signature pouty lips, the Shondaland veteran rocked a bold poppy toned lipstick which was applied before she stepped on the set of the morning show.
As Kerry arrived at 30 Rock, coffee in hand, her lips were left their natural tone.
Kerry has been making the rounds to promote American Son, which is still in previews.
‘It’s definitely, for me, one of the most challenging projects I’ve ever taken on as an actor,’ she said on Today.
