Eric Swalwell is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California’s 15th district. Thanks to a soccer scholarship, Eric was the first in his family to go to college. After graduating from the University of Maryland, Eric interned for Ellen Tauscher and became a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, California.
Swalwell defeated 40-year incumbent Pete Stark in 2012 to join the U.S. House. From April 2019 to July 2019, Eric was a candidate in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries. Swalwell recently found himself in the spotlight after reports claimed that he had an association with a suspected Chinese spy.
This piece will look at Eric’s love life. We can confirm that he is married.
Eric and his wife Brittany Watts raise two children: Nelson and Kathryn
Eric and Brittany reportedly met via mutual friends in September 2015. The couple married in October 2016 at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse in Oakland, California. On 14th October, Eric wished Brittany a happy anniversary via Instagram. “Happy 4th wedding anniversary to my wonderful wife and our two kids’ amazing and doting mom #fourmoreyears (and many, many more),” Eric wrote.
They welcomed their son, Nelson, in 2017, and their daughter, Kathryn, in 2018. Swalwell regularly shares photos and videos of his family on social media.
Brittany is an outspoken advocate for women’s rights and abortion rights. In May 2019, she took over Eric’s Instagram page to talk about the need for strict observance of human rights.
Eric and his first wife divorced but her identity remains a mystery
Before marrying Brittany, Eric divorced his mystery wife. The lack of information about her has led to suspicions that Eric was never married, but reports about his first marriage come from credible sources.
So far, Swalwell has refused to state whether he was in a relationship with Chinese spy Fang Fang. The Axios report on her claims that she had romantic relationships with political leaders in the Midwest.
