Hilary Swank has welcomed twins into the world with husband Philip Schneider.
Now, Hilary Swank married Schneider back in 2018 at a private ceremony in California.
Amazingly, the pair managed to keep their engagement a secret for a whopping 2 years before they tied the knot.
Swank opened up to Vogue about the first time they met, revealing it was a blind date.
“It was a blind date set up by actor Misha Collins’s wife Vicki and another close friend Jean. We met at 10 am and parted ways at 11 pm,” Swank revealed. “We clearly enjoyed our time!”
They got engaged just over a year later. Discussing her wedding venue, Swank said: “We found exactly what we were looking for at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California.” Adding: “It’s a stunning private community surrounded by 20,000 acres of conservancy and an intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old.”
Then, just 4 years after they said ‘I do,’ they announced they were expecting twins!
And the news has left everyone ecstatic.
The forty-eight-year-old star was promoting her new drama, Alaska Daily when she opened up about the exciting news.
Host Robin Roberts said: “We hear that you have something that you’d like to share with us.”
“Yeah, I do. And I’m so happy to share it with you and with America right now,” Swank replied.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time.”
“My next thing is I’m gonna be a mom!” Swank shared. “I’m gonna be a mom, and not just of one, but of two!”
“I can’t believe it!” she added. “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.”
This will be Swank’s first child with entrepreneur Philip Schneider.
She further opened up on Live with Kelly and Ryan after GMA, sharing that she’s “feeling great right now.”
Describing how she feels about having twins, she said that they run in both her and her husband’s families and described her pregnancy as “such a blessing.”
“It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she said.
The news comes after Swank’s interview with You Magazine in 2020 in which she revealed that she feels “maternal.”
“I feel that I’m very maternal in the people that I care for and all the sentient beings I have around me — my dogs, my horses or just the human beings.
“And I feel like so much of the time women who either choose not to or can’t have children are somehow seen as not maternal or not mothering and it is a conversation that needs to be had, because… I’ve heard a lot of women say that they’ve been told: ‘Oh, you’re kind of a failure.’ Or, you know: ‘Didn’t you come here to procreate?’ There are so many different ways to procreate!” she said.
Since then, fans have got an exciting update on Swank’s pregnancy…
This weekend, Swank shared the news the internet had been waiting for.
“It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven,” she wrote on Instagram.
