Ashley Judd, the daughter of country singer Naomi Judd and Michael C. Ciminella, got married to Dario Franchitti in 2001, though they divorced after more than 11 years together.

Who is Ashley Judd's husband? Dario Franchitti is an Italian-British well-known champion race car driver, and as for 2019, he works as a motorsport commentator. The actress continuously attended his races in the past and cheered on him, wearing floppy hats and stunning sundresses.

Though Ashley Judd's marriage to Dario Franchitti ended up in a divorce after 11 years, the couple remained on great terms. Besides, Ashley Judd is now a godmother to her ex-husband's child.

As odd as it sounds, Dario Franchitti got married to hedge fund executive, Eleanor Robb, in 2014 — a year after his legal separation from his former wife. Together, they share two kids: daughters, Sofia and Valentina.

Although Ashely Judd's marriage with ex Dario Franchitti lasted a bit more than a decade, they are now better off as best pals.

The Kiss the Girls star stated:

Now, he [Dario] is married, and I am the godmother to their child Sofia. We're given our family of chance that we were born into but also have this unique opportunity to create a chosen family.

Before meeting her ex-husband, Judd was involved in several relationships, including actor and country singer-songwriter, Lyle Lovett; a Hollywood hunk, Matthew McConaughey; actor Josh Charles; and finally, American singer-songwriter, Michael Bolton.

The American actress is a single woman now and has no children. She did not have any kids from previous romances, as the Hollywood actress told Sunday Mail and Parade:

It's unconscionable to breed with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries.

Ashely Judd is now a political and humanitarian activist, except for her thriving acting career. She is continuously on debates about gender equality, abuse issues, and other topics concerning philanthropism.

Life is always unexpected, as you never know what might happen to you right here and right now. It doesn't matter whether you are alone or in a relationship, with children or without; what matters is inner satisfaction, gratitude to God, and self-acceptance.
