Hilary Swank Is Pregnant With Twins: "This Is Something That I've Been Wanting For a Long Time"

Hilary Swank is going to be a mom! The 48-year-old actor announced the exciting news during her appearance on “Good Morning America” on Oct. 5, saying, “This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m going to be a mom — and not just of one, but of two.” Yep, that’s right — Swank and her husband, Philip Schneider, are expecting twins. “I can’t believe it,” she said excitedly. “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.”

Swank further discussed her pregnancy in a separate interview during an appearance on “Live With Kelly and Ryan” that same day, saying she’s “feeling great right now.” Of finally being able to share the special news with everyone, the actor added, “It’s so fun to actually finally be able to say it, you know, to get past the 12 weeks and be able to say, ‘I’m pregnant!'”

Swank has been busy filming her new series “Alaska Daily,” and she says the crew is just now finding out about her pregnancy, too. “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 actor recalled of her recent on-set experience. “And [they] came and said, ‘You know that’s not in continuity.’ And I said, ‘Oh, I think it works.’ And she’s like, ‘It doesn’t.’ I’m like, ‘No, it does. I’m going to make it work.’ She’s like, ‘You’re an executive producer, you can do it, but this is weird.'”

The actor also told hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that twins run in her family. She explained, “It’s double excitement. My grandmother was a twin, my husband’s grandmother was a twin, so we have twins in our lineage.”

Swank tied the knot with the social venture entrepreneur at the Saint Lucia Preserve in Carmel, CA, in August 2018. The couple exchanged “I dos” in front of their closest friends and family, including Mariska Hargitay, who served as Swank’s maid of honor. Of her wedding, Swank previously told Vogue, “I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”
