Washington

Word just broke on the Internet that Scandal star Kerry Washington recently married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha during a June 24th ceremony in Idaho. Notice how the word Internet is underlined above LOL.

E! News is reporting that they’ve confirmed the story, but we’ll proceed with caution until we hear more. If the story is true, we’re excited for the new couple and pray that this is the beginning of a long, wonderful marriage.

From E! News:

Not exactly a Scandal, but this is certainly a surprise!

Kerry Washington married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho, E! News exclusively confirms.

Because, you know, they were such a high-profile couple…?

Well, according to sports gossip site TerezOwens.com, which was first to get wind of the happy news, Asomugha has been dating Vanity Fair‘s August 2013 cover girl since last summer.

The 31-year-old three-time Pro Bowl star played with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him following his graduation from UC Berkeley in 2003, for eight seasons and the Philadelphia Eagles for two before signing with the 49ers in April. The bookish athlete is no stranger to showbiz, either, having scored acting gigs on The GameFriday Night Lights and Leveragein recent years.

UPDATE: The story has been confirmed through ABC News and a marriage license has surfaced:

Move over Sanaa and Omar, a new Love and Basketball couple are here. Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant proposed to Minnesota Lynx guard Monica Wright (same name as Sanaa’s character in the movie) recently and she confirmed the engagement this past Sunday after the Lynx defeated the Phoenix Mercury.

Despite the fact that they both grew up in the DC Area, the 24 year olds became friends during the 2006 McDonald’s High School All-American Game in San Diego and remained close thereafter. They both were also chosen 2nd overall in their respective drafts.

Durant has been a very visible support system at Wright’s games, but the two’s relationship has been kept pretty hush-hush. Aside from a couple Instagram shots of the pair, Durant jokingly tweeted back in September 2011:

The news was broke by Star Tribune’s Kent Youngblood via Twitter:

Congratulations to the couple!
