Hilary Swank revealed in an emotional Instagram post on Friday that her father, Stephen Michael Swank, died in October.

“This past year was a big one for me and I know for so many of us. I have been off my phone and social media for a couple months due to a tremendous personal loss. In October, my Dear Dad, made his transition to the other side,” Hilary captioned a photo of her and Stephen smiling together.

The “Million Dollar Baby” star, 47, shared that she had a “unique” relationship with her dad, as she became his “sole caretaker” after he underwent a lung transplant in 2014.

“I grew incredibly close to him during this time, deepening our relationship and savoring every moment we had together,” she wrote. “He will always remain one of my most favorite persons and not a day goes by that I don’t miss him.”

Hilary also reflected on the positive lessons she has learned from losing her dad, who was a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant.

“In this physical loss, as devastating as it is, I was awakened to the truest sense of living again,” she wrote. “It helped me better understand the circle of life and where we come from and where we go back to, which has connected me back to my truest self.”

She continued, “It helped me forgive, to move past the things that hold me back, in whatever form that takes each day. As well as being deeply connected to the Ultimate Source and therefore, my Dad, always.”

The actress then shared a message to her fans, wishing them happiness moving forward from any challenges they faced in 2021.

“This last year I hope whatever trials and tribulations you all have had on your life journey bring you closer to your truest essence and help guide you into this New Year with whatever blessings you most need,” she wrote. “We are all in this together. I love you all and am grateful for this community. 🙌🏽 Peace and Many Blessings to you, in all the forms they may come. ✨.”
