Kerry Washington’s wedding ‘shocked’ pals
Kerry Washington’s secret wedding to Nnamdi Asomugha last month came as a big surprise to some of her close friends, according to a new report.
The 36-year-old actress and her American football star fiancé held a secret ceremony in Blaine County, Idaho on June 24.
News first broke of the nuptials over a week later, on July 3.
Most people didn’t know she was even in relationship, according to People magazine.
The outlet reports even her colleagues at hit US TV show Scandal were stunned.
“No one on the show even knew she had a boyfriend,” a source said.
Kerry apparently prefers to keep her personal life out of spotlight.
An insider described the star as “very smart, very sweet - and very private”.
US Berkeley-educated Nnamdi, an actor and cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers, apparently shares Kerry’s values.
The couple are both active in charitable causes. He heads an educational foundation to help the poor in the US and Africa.
An insider described the athlete and actor as “a modern-day Renaissance man”.
“He’s incredibly empathetic and caring,” the source said.
Kerry and Nnamdi are believed to have dated for a year before walking down the aisle.
Sports gossip website TerezOwens.com was first to report news of the nuptials.
It is Kerry’s first marriage, with the star previously engaged to actor David Moscow. The former couple split in 2007.
