You won't catch Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asmougha doing it for the 'gram because these two are as lowkey as they come. Since they married 2013, little is known about their life as husband and wife other than the fact that they are proud parents to children, Isabella and Caleb. We love that these two, even in the spotlight, manage to keep their personal life private.

These two were destined for a great love from the beginning. Cory always speaks highly of his humble beginnings in the industry and patient heart of Tia that kept him motivated on his darkest days. “I had odd jobs. I worked at K-Mart, graveyard shift, security. That’s when I was just grinding man. I met my wife during them days. She was with me. She was just coming out of Sister, Sister, but they had everything man and I didn’t have anything. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in the corner, no furniture for almost two years," the actor revealed. "I was waiting on a bus stop—after I shot my first film. Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started." Aww!
