8. Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington
While it seems like most celebrity couples feel perfectly comfortable with having their lives in the spotlight, and we’ll take it as far as saying some even enjoy it, actress Kerry Washington and former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha aren’t one of those couples. On the contrary – Washington is notoriously known for trying to keep her personal life as such – personal. That’s why, to our dismay, we don’t know where the couple went on their first date, or even who asked who out, but every now and then we find a new and adorable detail about the couple that’s been married for seven years now.
The couple met on Kerry’s last theater performance, a performance she recalls as life-changing thanks to this encounter. The two met on Kerry’s last night on Broadway, when she performed in Race, and the football player arrived with a friend to see the show, completely clueless that this would be the night he meets his future wife. As we said, we don’t have further information about their first date, but we do know that in three years later, in 2013 (the same year Asomugha retired from football), the couple exchanged vows.
