Kerry Washington Secretly Weds NFL Star Nnamdi Asomugha

·Managing Editor, Yahoo Celebrity

Kerry Washington definitely knows how to keep a secret.

The "Scandal" star, 36, quietly married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho. While the remote location was sure to keep the paparazzi away, was it really necessary when no one even knew they were a couple in the first place?

According to, who first reported the nuptial news on Tuesday, Asomugha and Washington have been dating since last summer.

A 2003 graduate of UC Berkeley, Asomugha, 31, played for the Oakland Raiders for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for two before signing with the 49ers in April. (Though he's bounced around a bit when it comes to committing to a football team, it seems he wasn't afraid to commit to Kerry!) He's also dabbled in acting, with guest-starring gigs on "Friday Night Lights," "The Game," "Leverage," and "Kroll Show."

Another thing Asomugha and the stylish "Django Unchained" actress have in common? Giving back. The political activists are both involved in various philanthropic efforts. Asomugha has participated in the Clinton Global Initiative every year since 2009, while Washington addressed the crowd at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

This marks the first marriage for both. Washington was previously engaged to longtime boyfriend David Moscow (better known as the kid who turns into Tom Hanks in the 1988 flick "Big"), but called the wedding off in 2007. Since then, she's kept everyone in the dark about her personal life — but gave a little clue on Twitter Tuesday that she could be headed off on a 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," posted the newlywed.
