Actress Kerry Washington wed American football star Nnamdi Asomugha with just her parents as witnesses.

The Django Unchained beauty tied the knot in secret in Hailey, Idaho on 24 June (13) and the nuptials were so low-key, none of their friends knew about it.

The only member of the groom's family to attend the wedding was the San Francisco 49ers cornerback's minister sister, Chisara, who officiated the ceremony with Washington's proud parents, Valerie and Earl, looking on.

A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "Nobody knew about it in advance. She told friends who found out in the news not to take it personally."

The couple had been dating for three years, but news of their romance and marriage only hit headlines last week (begs01Jul13).

The insider adds, "They dated very quietly. Kerry got to know him away from their careers and loved the real him."
