There’s no scandal in Kerry Washington’s life, just a rather big secret that’s finally been spilled:

She’s married! To NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha!

E! News confirms that the actress and the San Francisco 49ers cornerback exchanged vows on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho. Her parents were in attendance and Asomugha’s officiated the ceremony.

Asomugha – a three-time Pro Bowler who has dabbled in acting via roles on episodes of Friday Night Lights and Leverage – has been dating the Scandal actress for about a year.

This is Washington’s first marriage, though she was engaged to actor David Moscow before ending that relationship in 2007. We send this unexpected couple our very best wishes!
