Kerry Washington has married her boyfriend American football star Nnamdi Asomugha in a secret wedding ceremony.
The Scandal actress, who also starred in Django Unchained as Jamie Foxx's enslaved wife Broomhilda von Shaft, wed on 24 June with her parents Earl and Valerie Washington present as witnesses.
Kerry, 36, recently made headlines when she appeared on the cover of the August edition of Vanity Fair, the first black woman to do so since Beyonce in 2005.
In the magazine, the actress talks about the ABC series Scandal, in which she is the lead, "One of the most profound things for me about the show is the number of white women of all ages who come up to me and say, 'I want to be Olivia Pope.'"
The beautiful Peeples star also appeared in Elle magazine's June 2013 issue.
On her current success she told the magazine: "I'm the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie- I don't get to ask for more."
Although the beauty had reportedly been dating the 31-year-old San Francisco 49ers player Nnamdi for about a year, Kerry's wedding comes as a surprise as she keeps her private life largely under wraps.
She 'logged off' Twitter on Tuesday, perhaps to jet off on honeymoon with her new husband.
"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" wrote the stunning star.
