These new parents have something in common! Kerry Washington appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, July 31, and bonded with the show host over their lives as new parents to their precious recently-born baby girls, Isabelle and Jane.

"I can't believe you had a baby and you look like this!" Kimmel exclaimed to the actress, who stunned in a fitted berry-colored, floral frock with blue suede heels. "It's against the rules!"

Shifting the topic to her pregnancy cravings, Washington noted to Kimmel: "You did something very kind last time I came [in February]." She went on to share a story of how the comedian had sent her barbecue goodies from an Austin hotspot. "There's nothing more kind to do for a pregnant lady than [to give her] a box full of frozen deliciousness," she gushed. "It was amazing!"

Washington welcomed her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha on April 21 in L.A., while Kimmel welcomed his daughter with Molly McNearney on July 10.

"Your baby's name is Isabelle and mine is Jane," Kimmel noted. "We should swap them and see if our families notice!"

The Emmy-nominated star added that she heard Kimmel's daughter Jane was named after his grandmother. "Mine is too!" she said, sharing that baby Isabelle was also named after her grams.

As for other cute tidbits from her appearance, Washington gushed about the Obamas and how she was an early supporter from when he was a Senator. "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!" she said.

And while it would be "presumptuous" to say they were her friends, she added, "I like them very much."
