The news of the wedding -- and even the relationship itself -- came as a big surprise to fans of the actress, who doesn't talk about her personal life.

According to People, the couple listed the witnesses as her parents.

A rep for Washington declined comment.

Sports gossip site Terez Owens first reported the unconfirmed news of the nuptials, claiming the couple began dating last summer. E! News was the first outlet to report it had confirmation of the wedding.

This is the first marriage for Washington, who was previously engaged to actor David Moscow. Her recent film credits include Peeples and Django Unchained.

Asomugha has appeared in such TV shows as The Game, Friday Night Lights and Leverage.
