Where to begin… where to begin. Sigh. Okay. Here we go. Kerry Washington is just… the coolest. Last night I was minding my own business when our very own PITNBr Sabrina (BREE_IZZY on Instagram) sent me the cray-est news ever in the history of everdom. Our girl and Scandal star Kerry Washington went and got herself hitched to football player Nnamdi Asomugha! I promise y’all I have never thrown my phone down and googled something so quickly. And sure enough, there it was on E! I can honestly say that I am so happy for Kerry… and kind of, weirdly, jealous of Nnamdi, lol. Click inside to learn more! Our girl is married, y’all!
Dude. THIS is
Olivia Pope‘s Kerry Washington‘s friggen husband!!! OMG:
E! has the story:
Not exactly a Scandal, but this is certainly a surprise!
Kerry Washington married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho, E! News exclusively confirms.
Because, you know, they were such a high-profile couple…?
Well, according to sports gossip site TerezOwens.com, which was first to get wind of the happy news, Asomugha has been dating Vanity Fair’s August 2013 cover girl 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.
Like his bride, Asomugha is also a dedicated activist and philanthropist and he has participated in the Clinton Global Initiative every year since 2009.
This is the first marriage for Washington, 36, who went from generally lovely actress to mega-star over the past year thanks to her breakout roles playing not-to-be-messed-with political fixer Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal and Jamie Foxx’s enslaved wife Broomhilda von Shaft in Django Unchained.
According to People, the only witnesses at the wedding were Kerry‘s parents. I mean– by today’s standards– this pretty much falls under the category of an elopement right? How ridiculously romantic is that?! I had absolutely no idea that Kerry was even dating this guy, and now they’re married. There’s something really awesome about that. I saw a reader mention on another site that it proves that one really can have some privacy in Hollywood, if that’s what you work towards. I can’t even believe they kept this under the radar. Madness! And I have to say– I cannot believe she’s married to an NFL player! Like, whaaat?! Did not see that coming. Like, not even a little bit. I just love it when people surprise me!
So, without further ado CONGRATULATIONS to my fave, Kerry Washington and her new husband
Mr. Kerry Washington Nnamdi Asomugha! LOL, no but for real. This is awesome. I’m about to go do some serious research on this guy just so we know who we’re dealing with… but something tells me we have nothing to worry about. Methinks Kerry knows how to pick ‘em.
