Hilary Swank revealed she has given birth to twins – a boy and a girl.
The Million Dollar Baby actress, 48, shared the happy news on Easter Sunday with a heartwarming image of her holding the newborns in her arms while looking out onto a sunset.
‘It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven,’ the new mom captioned the touching photo.
The star looked cozy holding the babies in her arms while wrapped up in a plush white bathrobe.
The twins are the first children for the Alaska Daily producer-star and her second husband, ‘social venture entrepreneur’ Philip Schneider.
The actress received an outpouring of support from her 1.4M Instagram followers after announcing the happy news.
Sharon Stone wrote, ‘God bless honey This is the most extraordinary journey ever ❣️so happy for you all.’
‘Congrats!!!!’ added Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Sophia Bush added, ‘They’re HERE,’ with a number of white heart emojis.
Last month the two-time Oscar winner posted an ultrasound of her ‘Million Dollar Baby’ on Sunday captioned: ‘Baby A flexing for the camera at their ultrasound. #TheRealMillionDollarBaby #Prizefighter.’
Hilary won the best actress Academy Award in 2005 for her performance as determined Ozarks waitress-turned-fighter Maggie Fitzgerald in Clint Eastwood’s critically-acclaimed boxing drama, which amassed $216.8M at the box office.
Hilary and Philip Schneider wed in 2018 and reportedly met on a blind date in November 2016 – five months after she ended her three-month engagement to former tennis pro, Ruben Torres.
In October, the star told Extra why she waited so long to have kids.
‘I was having a career and not having the right relationship until … four years ago, and all the elements needed to come together and be right.’
She continued, ‘It’s just something I thought about even as a young girl. It’s something that was on my mind, so it’s nice to be here and just be pregnant.’
The first time mom shared the exciting news on Good Morning America, also in October.
She said: ‘I’m gonna be a mom! And not just of one, but of two. It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.’
The Boys Don’t Cry actress also announced impending motherhood on Instagram.
Captioning video of her flaunting a burgeoning baby bump, Swank wrote: ‘Coming soon…DOUBLE feature!’
The leading lady has been showered with love from her Hollywood peers since the very beginning of her pregnancy journey, with many commenting on her Instagram pregnancy reveal.
Janet Jackson wrote: ‘I am SO happy for you! An entirely new and exciting world is about to come to you!!! Congratulations.’
