5 Things to Know About Nnamdi Asomugha

Kerry Washington is giving Olivia Pope a run for her money when it comes to “scandal.” Earlier this week, several media outlets reported that the actress had secretly wed (and apparently dated) San Francisco 49er’s player Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24. With just their parents as wedding guests, Hollywood’s newest couple takes privacy to a whole other level.

While we try to wrap our heads around this surprise news, find out more about Kerry’s new husband below.


He’s been in the NFL for 11 years. 

At the age of 20, Asomugha was a first round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders. In 2010, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles before signing a one year deal with the San Francisco 49ers in April 2013.
