Actress Hilary Swank, 48, announced yesterday that she and her husband Philip Schneider had welcomed twins on Easter Sunday. We can bet the star is working her way through her newborn checklist now that the babies have arrived. She posted a photo on her Instagram holding the two newborns watching the sunset over the water.
"It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. 👼🏼🤍👼🏼 Happy Easter! 🐣🐣 Posting from pure Heaven. 🙌🏽" she captioned the photo.
Well wishes and congratulations flooded the comments section. Mariska Hargitay wrote "I can’t stop staring at this beauty ♥️♥️", Kate Hudson responded "💫 Happy Easter Mama 💫", and Lindsay Lohan, who recently announced her first pregnancy, said "Congratulations!!!!!!!!! God bless! 🙏❤️🎉"
Swank announced her pregnancy last October on Good Morning America saying "I'm so happy to share it with you, and America right now. This is something that I've been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I'm going to be a mom." She added "and not just to one baby but to two!"
She has documented her journey on Instagram, including a recent ultrasound photo of Baby A "flexing for the camera". The perfect pose for the child of the Million Dollar Baby star.
The star has yet to announce the names of the twins, we'll have to wait to see if the couple chose names that mean love or names that mean miracle.
