Congratulations to Hilary Swank and her husband Philip Schneider! The Oscar-winning actress, 48, just revealed the couple are expecting twins! Hilary was a guest on Good Morning America on Wednesday (October 5) when she made the exciting announcement, saying, “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it.”

“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” continued the Boys Don’t Cry star. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.” This will be the first children for both Hilary and Paul.

Hilary also appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan after GMA and said she hadn’t let the production crew on her new show Alaska Daily know she was pregnant until her GMA announcement, even though she’s in her second trimester. She then explained how it was getting close to being a known secret on set anyway.

“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 explained with a laugh. “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.’ ”

Hilary went on to say that it wasn’t that surprising she is pregnant with twins as they run in both her family and her husband’s. She also said the couple are “so excited” for the next phase in their lives. “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she said.

The expecting couple got hitched back in August 2018, two years after they first started dating. Hilary and Paul, a social venture entrepreneur, walked down the aisle in an intimate ceremony at Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. “It was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it,” Hilary said of the wedding to Vogue at the time.  “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.”
