While Schilling has been notoriously private about her personal life in the past, she told ES Magazine in 2017, "There’s no part of me that can be put under a label."

"I really don't fit into a box, that's too reductive," she continued. "I've had wonderful relationships. I've had a lot of love, and I don't have any qualms about where it comes from."

Congrats to the happy couple!
