Sorry “Scandal” fans secretly (or not-so-secretly) hoping Kerry Washington would end up with on-screen flame Tony Goldwyn, but she just walked down the aisle with someone else. It’s being reported that the “Django Unchained” star tied the knot with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
E! News reports that Washington, 36, and Asomugha, 31, wed on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho. The couple has reportedly been dating since summer 2012. This is Washington’s first marriage. She previously was engaged to actor David Moscow, but broke off the engagement in 2007.
Not long after she quietly married Asomugha, Washington tweeted that she would be going radio silent for a few weeks so she could go on “vacay” — likely to celebrate her honeymoon. “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,” she posted.
Asomugha is an NFL star who appeared in the Pro Bowl three times and played for the Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. He’s also acted in several projects including “Friday Night Lights,” “Leverage” and “Fire with Fire.”
Update: In case you are still in doubt about this news, E! News posted Washington and Asomugha’s marriage certificate. It seems they were wed by Asomugha’s sister Chisara Okwu Asomugha. Congratulations to the happy couple!
