The “Million Dollar Baby” is expecting her own bab(ies)! In a new interview with Good Morning America, Hilary Swank shares that she’s expecting twins with her husband Philip Schneider.
Swank, who is 48 years old, explained that she’s always known she’s wanted kids, and now she’s super excited to become a first-time mom.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” said Swank. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.”
She’s apparently been keeping the happy news a secret, as many expecting moms do. She confirmed she’s now in her second trimester of pregnancy.
“It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it,” she says.
Swank appeared on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” not long after announcing the news, saying of her pregnancy, “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.”
Swank, who’s currently starring in ABC’s drama series “Alaska Daily,” says her crew didn’t know she was pregnant until Wednesday, when she announced it to the world.
“But my clothes started not to fit so I had to, the other day I cut [my jeans] open. And then I put a jacket on that wasn’t in continuity,” she explained. “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.'”
Well, now they know why!
Swank says twins run in her husband’s family, and gushed that she’s “so excited” to become a mother and see what life’s next phase has in store.
“It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she raved
