Who is Eric Swalwell's wife Brittany Watts? A look at his children and married life in $1.2M Washington home
Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell, who is also the House impeachment manager for former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial, accused the former President of mobilizing his supporters for months until they launched the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
"He built this mob over many months with repeated messaging, until they believed that they’d been robbed of their vote, and they would do *anything* to stop the certification," remarked the California Democrat, on the second day of the impeachment trial. He also added that there was a clear distinction between the Trump supporters who peacefully attended the rally and the ones who turned rogue and started the Capitol Riots, reported NPR.
The 40-year-old Representative is married to Brittany Watts and shares two children with her.

Love and marriage with Eric Swalwell
The couple met in 2015 after they were introduced by their mutual friends. Incidentally, it was Eric Swalwell who had set up these mutual friends 12 years ago and helped them get together. At that time, Swalwell was divorced from his first wife.
He and Brittany dated for about a year, before Swalwell proposed to her at a resort in West Virginia. They got married on October 14, 2016, at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse in Oakland, California. Their wedding was officiated by the Alameda County district attorney Nancy E. O'Malley, reported The New York Times.
The happy couple is now parents to two children - an elder son named Nelson and younger daughter Cricket. Despite the challenges of being a politician, Swalwell is a doting father to them and also a supportive husband to Brittany. The couple is believed to be in a happy marriage. In April 2020, Swalwell bought a $1.2 million duplex in Eckington, Washington D.C, where he is believed to currently reside with his family.
