It came as quite a pleasant surprise to me when I came across a rather cute Nigerian attired family picture of what was labelled Actress Kerry Washington with her husband and kids.
I have not been an avid follower of the “Scandal” actress who plays Olivia Pope, so the discovery of not just her marital status, but also the identity of her spouse took me as much by suprise as it would many Nigerians who would hitherto have been unaware of these details.
Washington tied the knot with football player Nnamdi Asomugha, after dating for 1 year.
The 42 year-old Scandal actress and the 36 year old San Francisco 49ers cornerback got married on June 24 2013 in Blaine County, Idaho.
Kerry became one of the most buzzed about actresses of 2012 with her breakout role as Olivia Pope on Scandal and her turn as an enslaved woman in Django Unchained.
Nnamdi was signed to the 49ers and previously played for the Oakland Raiders for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for another two.
Both Kerry and Nnamdi are dedicated activists and philanthropists. He has participated in the Clinton Global Initiative every year since 2009.
The couple have a daughter and two sons.
