“It was a blind date set up by actor Misha Collins’s wife Vicki and another close friend Jean. We met at 10 am and parted ways at 11 pm,” Swank revealed. “We clearly enjoyed our time!”

They got engaged just over a year later.

Discussing her wedding venue, Swank said: “We found exactly what we were looking for at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California.” Adding: “It’s a stunning private community surrounded by 20,000 acres of conservancy and an intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old.”

However, some were concerned for her unborn children, with one writing: “48, she will be almost 66 by the time they are 18yo. She’ll be 54 or 55 when the kids start school. Grandma.”

But another chimed in showing support for her, writing: “I’m sure she and the babies will be fine. As long as she’s in good health and sees her OB at the proper times, takes her prenatal. There’s no reason why those babies would have any problems.”

The news comes after Swank’s interview with You Magazine in 2020 in which she revealed that she feels “maternal.”

“I feel that I’m very maternal in the people that I care for and all the sentient beings I have around me — my dogs, my horses or just the human beings.

“And I feel like so much of the time women who either choose not to or can’t have children are somehow seen as not maternal or not mothering and it is a conversation that needs to be had, because… I’ve heard a lot of women say that they’ve been told: ‘Oh, you’re kind of a failure.’ Or, you know: ‘Didn’t you come here to procreate?’ There are so many different ways to procreate!” she said.
