'Scandal' Creator Shonda Rhimes Adopts Baby Girl

If you've been missing Shonda Rhimes on social media, she has good reason. The television titan revealed earlier this week that she is now the proud mother of yet another baby girl!

"Been AWOL from Twitter. I totally have a good reason: TINY HUMAN #3 is here and she's perfect!" she wrote. "Babies are good. Life is good. #2shows3kids."

This is the third adopted daughter for Rhimes who previously welcomed Harper in June 2002 and Emerson in February 2012. The real-life experience has often worked itself into the subject matter on her hit ABC series.

"I've been writing adoption into story lines on my shows and only a few people close to me knew about my plans," she told Us Weekly back in 2012. "I think the response was 'oh my goodness' from a lot of people."

In addition to running behind three young girls, Rhimes is gearing up for the premieres of Grey's Anatomy (Sept. 26) and Scandal (Oct. 3), as well as the development of a new dramedy titled Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight.

Congratulations of Rhimes!
