Sometimes the world of sports and entertainment collide. When they do, relationships can be formed that make an ultimate power couple across two major industries.

These ladies certainly do love a man in a uniform, and their athlete husbands scored big when they married these popular celebrities. Let’s take a look at a few Hollywood stars who wed sports stars.

Scandal actress Kerry Washington and former NFL cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha got together in 2012 when he was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. The two kept their relationship under wraps and no one had a clue they were dating. So when the news broke that they had gotten married in 2013, people were pretty surprised.

Washington later called her low-key nuptials “thrilling!” The couple has one daughter, Isabelle Amarachi, and one son, Caleb Kelechi.

After his football career ended, Asomugha followed in his wife’s footsteps and began dabbling in acting. He received praise for his role as Carl King in the 2017 film, Crown Heights.
