Kerry Washington says she is "blessed" after her recent marriage and Emmy nomination.

Kerry Washington says she is "blessed in all areas of my life".

The 'Scandal' actress recently tied the knot with NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, in a secret ceremony and was just nominated for an Emmy for her role in the ABC drama and Kerry, 36, has never been happier.

She told People: "I don't talk about my personal life in the press, but I will say I'm really happy. I'm blessed in all areas of my life.

"I'm the luckiest broad in showbiz. I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination."

Speaking about the Emmy's ceremony which will take place on September 22 in Los Angeles, she said: "I have not decided who will be my date. That was my parents question this morning! We'll see."

Kerry recently opened up about her desire to live a normal life and revealed she was always reluctant to be an actress because she didn't want to be famous.

She said: "I'm the daughter of a professor, so ... well, I think acting's not a real job. I come from this sort of academic, working middle-class family where you make something respectable of your life ... I always loved acting, but I think for a long time, in my brain, the desire to be an actor was equivalent to the desire to be famous. I did not want to be famous. I did not want to be that girl. I thought that if you wanted to be an actress, you had to want to be on the front cover of magazines, otherwise you shouldn't do it.

"I'm lucky I come from a really grounded family and I have the three best friends from high school who have made it their job to remain unimpressed by everything I do. If I started being super-diva Kerry, they would be like, 'What is that?' "
