Shonda Rhimes has two shows and three kids. That’s right! The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Scandal’ creator welcomed her third child into the world a few days ago. The screenwriter shared her excitement with social media fans tweeting, “Been AWOL from Twitter. I totally have a good reason: TINY HUMAN #3 is here and she’s perfect! Babies are good. Life is good. #2shows3kids.”
Rhimes previously told media that adoption was her plan for building a family. “I’ve never wanted to be pregnant, never suffered through the infertility that devastates some of my friends. Since I was 9 years old, I’ve been telling people that when I have children, I will adopt,” explained the star. “As I got older, the idea matured too. It took shape and form and became real. Adoption was how I was going to become a mother. Adoption would build my family.”
In addition to the newest member of the family, Shonda also has two daughters, Harper and Emerson, adopted in June 2002 and February 2012.
