Records show that Washington and Asomugha filed a marriage license on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho, though it appears the two actually got married in the town of Hailey, Idaho, with her parents as witnessses. Asomugha’s sister officiated.

“It has been recorded in the Blaine County clerk’s office that Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington have been married on the 24th of June in the town of Hailey, Idaho,” the clerk’s office told Us in a statement.
