*What a bittersweet three days for Kerry Washington and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha.
Just 48 hours after the actress hosted “Saturday Night Live” for the first time, Asomugha was cut from his NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers. The 11th-year cornerback appeared in three games before hyperextending his knee.
According to the NFL team’s website, Asomugha signed a one-year contract with the Niners on April 3. He recorded three tackles and two passes defensed during his time with the team.
The 49ers have signed cornerback Eric Wright to take his place.
On Sunday, Asomugha joined his wife at “SNL’s” afterparty in her honor at Asellina Ristorante in NYC’S Gramercy neighborhood.
“She was adorable, as you can imagine” an observer tells Us Weekly of Washington, 36. “She was with her husband, parents and family and friends. When she arrived to the table, they gave her a standing [ovation]!”
A second source tells Us that the Emmy-nominated star, who stayed at the Ritz Carlton last week while rehearsing for “SNL,” also had her family in town to mark the big occasion.
The actress, who concealed her pregnant curves during her monologue on Saturday night, spent the evening beside her husband, 32, chatting up pals and colleagues, finally heading out around 3 a.m.
The couple tied the knot in Blaine County, Idaho, on June 24.
Neither Washington nor Asomugha have publicly addressed the pregnancy.
