Hilary Swank Has Welcomed Twins
Hilary Swank and her husband Philip Schneider have welcomed a boy and a girl!
The Million Dollar Baby actress shared the good news on Instagram on Sunday, April 9. “It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven,” she wrote in the caption.
Numerous celebrities shared their congratulations in the comments, including Viola Davis, Katie Couric, Sharon Stone and more.
Swank initially announced her pregnancy on Good Morning America, telling the hosts, “This is something I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I’m going to be a mom,” Swank said. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it!”
Shortly after her appearance on Good Morning America, the 48-year-old actress appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan confirming that the pregnancy rumors were true and that she was “Feeling great right now. It’s so fun to finally be able to say it, to get past the 12 weeks and be able to say, ‘I’m pregnant!”
Swank continued on to say that not even her Alaska Daily crew was privy to the news before she shared it today, and that she had made some wardrobe adjustments on her own to keep things under wraps. The Oscar-winning actress also told Ripa and Seacrest that twins run in her family, “My grandmother was a twin, my husband’s grandmother was a twin…twins are double the excitement!”
“It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” Swank gushed about her pregnancy at the time.
According to The Knot, Swank and Schneider, a social venture entrepreneur, secretly tied the knot between California Redwoods in August 2018, almost two years after they first met over brunch set up by mutual friends. “It was a blind date set up by actor Misha Collins’s wife Vicki and another close friend Jean. We met at 10:00 a.m. and parted ways at 11:00 p.m.,” Swank told The Knot. “We clearly enjoyed our time!”
Our best to the happy couple on this new adventure!
