    Starting from the beginning, Hegseth first tied the knot with Meredith Schwarz (first wife), in 2005. Not much is known about the past life of Pete with Meredith, as the couple officially divorced in 2009, leaving no reason behind. 

    Second Spouse, Samantha Hegseth

    Soon after the split with Meredith, Pete exchanged the wedding vows with his second partner Samantha Hegseth in 2010.

    Hegseth and Samantha were together for seven years (2010-2017) and they, share three children, Boone Hegseth, Rex Hegseth, and Gunner Hegseth (born on 13th June 2010). 

    Third Spouse: Jennifer Cunningham Rauchet

    When Pete was married to Samantha, he was having a secret affair with the Fox executive producer Jennifer Cunningham Rauchet in 2017, which led to the split between Pete and Samantha.

    Surprisingly, Pete and Jennifer had a daughter named Gwen Hegseth (born in August 2017), while Pete was with his second wife. Although the divorce was finalized in 2017, Hegseth and Cunningham married in 2019 following the engagement on 16th June.

    Since the wedding, Pete is living happily with his wife and children. Hegseth is seen spending quality time with his wife and children as a loving father.
