Stop the presses…Kerry Washington is married?
Sources are saying that Kerry Washington married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho.
According to sports gossip site TerezOwens.com, which was first to get wind of the happy news, Asomugha has been dating the Scandal star since last summer.
The 31-year-old three-time Pro Bowl star played with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him following his graduation from UC Berkeley in 2003, for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for two before signing with the 49ers in April. The bookish athlete is no stranger to showbiz, either, having scored acting gigs on The Game, Friday Night Lights and Leverage in recent years.
This is the first marriage for Washington, 36, who broke up with fiancé David Moscow (little Tom Hanks in Big!) in 2007 after several years together. Since then, however, the New York-born actress has kept her private life increasingly on the down-low as her star has steadily risen.
She tweeted Tuesday: “Ok. Logging off! See u in a few weeks! SO excited 4 all u UK #Gladiators about 2 experience Season 2! Spread the word! July 4th @More4Tweets.”
Check out the copy of the couple’s marriage certificate obtained from E! below. Washington’s parents, Earl and Valerie, signed the certificate as witnesses, and the groom’s sister, Chisaraokwu Asomugha—a minister in Silver Spring, Md.—officiated:
Can you say ‘SURPRISE!’
