Washington and hubby Nnamdi Asomugha have two children, a son and daughter named Caleb and Isabelle. Much like Donald Glover, the couple have kept their kids carefully hidden from paps and have yet to share any photos. Talking about her daughter during a panel at SXSW last year, Washington said, "I want her to be able to make those decisions in her time. She already has a lot to navigate in life as the daughter of an actor and a former football player. She should be able to enter this world when it feels right for her, and not [have me] make that decision for her. Who knows what the next generation of Snapchat will be when she’s allowed to have a phone."

You got to love a Hollywood couple that supports one another.

Over the weekend, Scandal star Kerry Washington hosted a Los Angeles screening of Crown Heights to show her hubby, Nnamdi Asomugha, some love as he stars alongside Lakeith Stanfield in the new drama.

Saturday night, Washington introduced the panel following the screening, calling its members “very special people.” Washington’s hubby plays Carl ‘KC’ King in the drama about Colin Warner, a man who was wrongfully imprisoned for a murder. The former NFL cornerback is also a producer on the project. 

Asomugha spent the last few years slowly transitioning into film after a seven-year NFL career. He told ET, "You walk into a room and there’s already judgment. You know, like football players can’t act or you’re going to come in and be stiff. When you do that much of your life and then you want to go act, where you have to be emotive, you have to be open and you have to be vulnerable —it can be a difficult thing.”

Luckily, Asomugha has Washington in his corner, who he thanks for being so supportive. "I know so many people who’ve been through situations where they’ve gone from one career to another and have had such a tough time because they didn’t have any support doing it. I just know how important it was for me," Asomugha added.

While, currently, there aren’t any roles on his to-do list for the remainder of 2017, Asomugha is set to executive produce Harriet, the Cynthia Erivo-led biopic about Harriet Tubman.
