Joking about how secretive she and her husband like to keep their relationship, Kerry told ET of their anniversary plans: "Do you remember how secret my wedding was? How private and secretive it was? That's how the anniversary is gonna be too!"

However, she did make a rare remark about Nnamdi, adding: "I do have an incredible husband."

The notoriously private couple secretly tied the knot in 2013 in Hailey, Idaho, with her parents, Earl and Valerie Washington, as witnesses. 

They welcomed their first child, daughter Isabelle Amarachi, eight, at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre a year later, however, both Kerry and Nnamdi managed to keep news of her arrival a secret for 11 days.

The couple also has a six-year-old son, Caleb Kelechi and Kerry is also stepmother to Nnamdi's 17-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

The American star previously admitted that she felt that motherhood allowed her to focus on "being the best version" of herself.

"I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now," she told Self Magazine. "My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle."

Back in 2016, Kerry and Nnamdi were plagued by reports of a split, which were fueled further by the actress' commitment to not comment on their relationship in public.

The couple don't discuss their private life in public

Making it clear she has no interest in speaking about her personal life, Kerry told E! News at the time: "Social media has actually been great for (other celebrities') relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, 'That's not true!'

"So, I'm thinking in some ways, it's been great because people are able to maintain their voice. It's a little different for me because I don't talk about my personal life."
