Hilary Swank has announced the birth of twins at the age of 48, calling the tough journey “worth it.”
In October, the Oscar winner revealed she was expecting 2 kids with husband Philip Schneider, calling the pregnancy a “complete miracle.”
She had previously expressed a desire for children, but believed it was crucial for the ‘perfect moment’ to come.
Now fast forward to the spring of 2023. Swank announced the good news to supporters on Instagram, where she posted a photo of herself enjoying the sunset with her two twins, a boy and a girl, whose heads were barely visible over her shoulders.
The new mother wrote: “It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven.”
Swank and her husband, Schneider, began dating in 2016, and they married in August 2018.
She announced her pregnancy on October 5, saying that she was delighted to share it with everyone right now. This is something she had wanted for a long time, and her next goal is to become a mother!
She is going to be a mother of two, not just one. It’s wonderful to be able to discuss and share it.
She subsequently posted a picture of her baby belly on social media with the caption, “Coming soon… double feature.”
Swank admits that her path to parenting hasn’t been simple, particularly when it comes to working while pregnant.
She said that her clothing had started to not fit, making concealing her pregnancy more difficult before she was ready to go public.
She had to rip her pants open during filming since they no longer fit her, and she ended up wearing a jacket over her outfit.
She added that she was ‘feeling terrific,’ but that it had been difficult to keep her pregnancy a secret from colleagues on the set of Alaska Daily.
She remembered that her clothing was no longer fitting, so she had to cut her pants open the other day. Then she put on a jacket that was out of place.
And they responded—that’s not in continuity. and it didn’t, she replied that she’d figure something out.
