HILARY Swank has announced that she is pregnant and expecting twins with her husband Philip Schneider.
The actress announced the news on Good Morning America and said it was something she had wanted for a long time.
Hilary, 48, and her husband Philip, 45, are expecting their first children together, a pair of twins.
The movie star gushed about her pregnancy, telling GMA, “This is something I’ve wanted for a long time and my next thing is to be a mom.”
“And not just one, but two. I can’t believe it.”
Hilary continued, “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.”
The Million Dollar Baby star later appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan, where she spoke more about her health since entering her second trimester.
“I’m feeling great right now, despite the time – you know I’m in Pacific time so I’m a little cross-eyed. But I’m feeling good right now,” she gushed.
This week, Hilary debuts her latest acting role on ABC drama Alaska Daily.
The actress plays a disgraced New York investigative reporter who transfers to an Alaskan newspaper.
The TV star also told Live viewers that her Alaska Daily cast and crew were unaware of her pregnancy until Wednesday’s announcement.
“But my clothes were starting to not fit, so the other day I had to…cut [my jeans] open. And then I put on a jacket that wasn’t in continuity,” she explained.
“And [they] came and said, ‘This is not continuity.’ I said, ‘Oh, I think it’s working.’ “It doesn’t.” “No, it does. I’ll make it work.’ She says, ‘If you’re an executive producer, you can do it, but that’s weird.’ “
Hilary gushed that she was “so excited” to welcome a new phase in her life, saying, “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s incredible.”
The PS I Love You lead also shared that there are twins in both her and Philip’s family lines.
The soon-to-be mom and her husband wed in 2018 after being spotted together for the first time in November 2016.
At the time, Hilary told Vogue about her wedding: “It was timeless. There is simply no other way to describe it.”
“I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and gratitude to marry the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the midst of such a profound environment. It really was a dream come true.”
She also spoke about Philip’s magical proposal, saying: “We have stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains. It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic 19th century cottages surrounded by beautiful pine trees and a big sky.
“One evening Philip fell on his knees in front of the waterfall and proposed – he lovingly made sure my dogs were close by so they could bear witness!”
