Since then, they have rarely been seen together in public, opting to keep their romance low key. On the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globes, the couple displayed some adorable PDA by kissing.

When Did She First Met Him?

In an interview with Vogue, she explained that a mutual friend and the wife of Misha Collins arranged up their first date. She told in 2016 while they were on a vacation in Colorado, he proposed. Schneider made sure that his 2016 proposal to Swank in Colorado was perfect by inviting both of her pets.

“It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic cabins built in the 1800s surrounded by beautiful pines and big skies. One evening, Philip dropped to his knee in front of the waterfall and proposed—he sweetly made sure my dogs were nearby so they could bear witness!” she told the outlet.

They got married in 2018 after a lovely wedding in the Redwood Forest of California following a two-year engagement. In an interview with Vogue, she explained that the couple had a mutual appreciation for nature, which drove them to select the location as a romantic backdrop.

“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” Hilary said. “And not just of one but of two.”

Hilary also said that her new position at the Alaska Daily is “fun,” in addition to the new arrivals and the newborns. In September 2022, she told Entertainment Weekly that she finds it fascinating to observe Eileen’s transformation from a celebrated New York writer to a jaded Alaskan reporter.

“She is going to get to the bottom of the truth one way or another,” Hilary said of her character. “No one’s going to stop her from getting there.”

“And I love that she does her homework; she knows her rights, and if she doesn’t, she quickly learns them,” she continued. “It’s kind of fun to see this award-winning journalist go up to Alaska, and … she just kind of shakes it all up. It’s something I admire in people — people who don’t give up, who persevere.” Do have a look at The Kardashian kids 10 most expensive purchases!

Who Was She Earlier Married to?

Hilary and Philip appear to be extremely happy with parenthood, but he’s not the first man the Million Dollar Baby actress has wed. Chad Lowe, with whom she had worked in the 1997 film Quiet Days In Hollywood, was her first husband. After marrying in 1997, the couple announced their separation in January 2006 and formalised their divorce in November 2007.

Hilary said at the time that “other factors” contributed to their breakup, but that the actor’s substance misuse problems were a key part. “When I found out, it was such a shock because I never thought he’d keep something from me. And yet, on another level, it was a confirmation of something I was feeling that was keeping us from being completely solid,” She explained her side of the story to Vanity Fair after the breakup.

In addition to Chad’s sobriety and forthcomingness regarding the divorce immediately after it became public, we also note that he got sober before the two were officially separated.  “The one thing I do want to set straight is that I’m so grateful to Hilary for her support of me in a very difficult time in my life three and a half years ago.

What hurt me more than anything is that people would think that she wasn’t there for me, and she was,” he told Extra at the time, per CBS News. Chad remarried Kim Painter in 2010 after their divorce and the couple now has three children.
