SOURCE OF JOY

When Asomugha met American actress Washington, the pain and sadness from her 2007 public breakup from her fiancé, David Moscow, left her heartbroken.

Since meeting in 2010, Washington has gone from heartbreak to happiness with Asomugha, whom she wed in 2013 after three years of being friends.

THEY MET IN A THEATER

The duo met for the first time in 2010 when a mutual friend took the footballer to see the actress perform in the Broadway show, "Race." Washington described it as her best stage performance for obvious reasons.

The father of three revealed that spending time with his kids is more important than anything else.

A PRIVATE LOVE LIFE

Just like Washington, Asomugha keeps his love life and family matters out of public view. He enjoyed a super-secret wedding with Washington in 2013 after having a low profile relationship.
