Hilary Swank has given birth to twins — a boy and a girl.
The 48-year-old ‘Million Dollar Baby’ actor posted a photo of her and her twins looking at the sunset on Instagram Sunday evening with the caption: “It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it.”
She added on Instagram that she’s “posting from pure heaven.” She and entrepreneur Philip Schneider have been married since 2018.
Over the course of her pregnancy, Swank had been filming her new ABC show ‘Alaska Daily’. She shared in an interview in October that when her pants didn’t fit during filming, she cut them open and put a jacket on to hide her bump.
“You don’t tell for 12 weeks for a certain reason. But then, like, you’re growing and you’re using the bathroom a lot and you’re eating a lot. I’m sure there’s been conversations, and when I get back to the set, people will be like, ‘Oh, it all makes sense now,’ the two-time Oscar winner said.
At January’s Golden Globes, Swank joked on the red carpet that she had “three months to go and I walked into a store the other day and this woman goes, ‘Honey, you better start jumping up and down to get that baby out.’ And this other woman like she’s like, ‘Oh, my God, three more months.’”
Ahead of the birth, she lightheartedly shared with her Instagram followers that she was contemplating putting Salt-N-Pepa’s ‘Push It’ on her delivery playlist.
As reported by the Hollywood Reporter, Swank shared earlier that giving birth to twins is in her 'lineage'. During an appearance on 'Live! With Kelly and Ryan', she said that her grandmother was a twin, as was her husband's grandmother. "So we have twins in our lineage," the star said at the time.
The twins mark Hilary's first children. She and her husband Philip Schneider have reportedly been married since 2018. After announcing her pregnancy, the 'Million Dollar Baby' star shared her journey on social media.
For Christmas, the actor posed next to a Christmas tree while showing her baby bump and posted, "We couldn't wish for a more incredible miracle. So grateful for these two gifts of a lifetime!!" On her bump, she quipped, "Oven's heatin' up, dough's beginning to rise!!"
