‘It's such a blessing, a total miracle,’ says Hilary Swank as she announces expecting twins with husband Philip Schneider


Hilary Swank is going to be a mother soon. The Oscar-winning actress, 48, announced on Wednesday that she and husband Philip Schneider are expecting twins. Hilary revealed the big news on Good Morning America and said, “This is something that I've been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I'm gonna be a mom. And not just of one, but of two. I can't believe it. It's so nice to be able to talk about it and share it "

Hilary appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan shortly after her GMA interview and raved about getting pregnant and that her Alaska Daily crew were not aware of her pregnancy until her Wednesday announcement. She said, “I'm feeling great right now, even with the time — you know, I'm on Pacific time, so I'm a little cross-eyed with that. But I'm feeling good right now."

Hilary spoke about her crew’s surprise as she is currently in her second trimester and said, “But my clothes started not to fit so I had to, the other day ... cut (my jeans) open. And then I put a jacket on that wasn't in continuity," the actress recalled. "And (they) came and said, 'That's not in continuity.' I said, 'Oh, I think it works.' 'It doesn't.' 'No, it does. I'm going to make it work.' She's like, 'If you're an executive producer, you can do it, but this is weird.' "

The actress went on to reveal that twins run in both her family and Philip’s and that she was “so excited” for the next phase. She said, “It's such a blessing. It's a total miracle. It's unbelievable.” Hilary tied the knot with Philip, a social venture entrepreneur in August 2018, almost two years after they were spotted together in November 2016.
