Scott Sveslosky belonged to the entertainment industry, like his wife of nearly a decade, actress Danica McKellar. He worked as a model, an actor, and a writer; however, Sveslosky completely turned his career around, venturing into the world of law.


In November 2022, Scott Sveslosky and his wife, Danica McKellar, packed their lives and family into a new home outside Nashville, Tennessee. The couple said they were ready to leave the city life and relocate to a place surrounded by nature.

Sveslosky moved with his wife, his mother-in-law, Mahalia, and his stepson, Draco. Although he and McKellar had never lived in Nashville before, the city carried some memories of their romance when it first began.

If it weren't for clashing work and travel schedules, being inseparable would have been a breeze for the two. McKellar recalled how, only a month into their relationship, they couldn't stand being apart for too long. Hence, she and Sveslosky would go the extra mile for each other.


When McKellar was filming in Kentucky, she recounted a "great weekend" she spent with Sveslosky after driving an hour and a half to meet with him in Nashville. He had also flown in just to spend a few days of quality time with her, and their romance grew from there.

Sveslosky's wife has an active social media presence; her posts often reveal that they've kept their spark strong and bright. The couple still enjoys date nights from time to time. McKellar announces much of their relationship milestones on her social platforms, including some interesting facts about Sveslosky.


Scott Is Not an Active Social Media User

The California native drew his first breath in Tustin on February 17, 1979. He is credited as an actor and a writer, having worked on the '90s TV series "Sweet Valley High" and "Hang Time." His most recent credit was in a 2017 Hallmark film titled "Campfire Kiss," starring his wife and Paul Greene.

Sveslosky also worked as a model, a profession he abandoned some time in his life. Still, it seemed to have worked in his favor; when McKellar met him in person for the first time, she said she wasn't "expecting a model." However, when "The Wonder Years" star laid eyes on him, she was completely smitten.

Sveslosky doesn't seem to have any official social media accounts, but he has frequently appeared on his wife's social pages. She shared a sweet birthday tribute to her husband earlier this year. Alongside a lovely selfie of herself and the former model, she captioned:


"You are my rock and my happy place, and I love you so much!"

A few months prior, Sveslosky had had a date night with McKellar back in Nashville. The couple had spent time at John Rich's bar, Redneck Riviera, enjoying music by Andy Gibbons and each other's company.


Sveslosky is also described as an attorney and a partner at the international law firm Sheppard, Mullin, Richter, and Hampton, LLP. The details of his love life before meeting McKellar remain to be known, but the attorney has a child – Hunter, 15 years old as of this year – from a previous relationship.

Scott and Danica Almost Immediately Fell in Love

Sveslosky met his wife through mutual friends, who revealed to the actress that he had just gotten out of a two-year relationship. At the time, McKellar had also been divorced for two years from her ex-husband, Mike Verta.

Although they had already spoken over phone calls by the time they had their first date, McKellar was initially hesitant. Yet, when she saw Sveslosky seated at their table, it was love at first sight.


They soon started dating and eventually got engaged in July 2014. McKellar excitedly announced the good news on her Instagram, showing off her engagement ring as she pointed at the silver band in a sweet picture. Sveslosky and McKellar may enjoy nights out on the town, but they also stay in from time to time.

In December 2022, McKellar told her followers on Twitter that she and Sveslosky had finished watching "Grace and Frankie" after four years. McKellar also revealed that she read to her husband every night, which was a daily routine she favored most.

Scott Got Married Surrounded by His Loved Ones

Sveslosky and McKellar tied the knot on November 15, 2014, in a ceremony held at sunrise. It was an intimate gathering in Hawaii with only 25 guests, including family and friends. McKellar donned a stunning Alfred Angelo off-the-shoulder mermaid gown, while Sveslosky matched with an all-white tux and shoes.


The lovers – who celebrated their 8th anniversary in 2022 – once tried having a baby but were unfortunately unsuccessful. However, they didn't take it to heart, as they already had children. Their sons, Hunter and Draco, got along well, according to McKellar.

When it came to maintaining her marriage, McKellar believed in always doing the things that made her partner feel special. She encouraged gratitude for the love of a romantic partner and acknowledged that although things won't always be perfect, the secret is to "keep working on it."
