LOS ANGELES (AP) — No “Scandal” here: Kerry Washington is a newlywed.

The star of the TV series married professional football player Nnamdi Asomugha last week in the U.S.

E! reported the nuptials Wednesday and posted a copy of the couple’s marriage license online. The Blaine County recorder’s office confirmed the June 24 filing to The Associated Press.

The 36-year-old actress and 31-year-old athlete were married June 24. One of Asomugha’s relatives performed the ceremony.

Besides starring in the ABC political thriller, Washington’s recent credits include the films “Peeples” and “Django Unchained.”
