The “Alaska Daily” star was married to Chad Lowe at the time, but she divorced the actor, now 54, the following year.
She then dated her agent, John Campisi, from 2007 to 2012 and was briefly engaged to financial adviser Ruben Torres in 2016.
She married to producer Philip Schneider in August 2018 after being together for two years.
On their first anniversary, Swank posted on Instagram about how great the relationship is.
In a caption under a picture of the couple smiling and embracing, she wrote: “It’s been a year!
“The best of my life…besides the first year…and second year together. Happy one year wedding anniversary, to the love of my life.”
