Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank and her husband, Paul Schneider, are expecting twins, the Million Dollar Baby star announced during a Good Morning America appearance Wednesday. “This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is going to be a mom,” said Swank, 48. “And not just of one but of two. I can’t believe it.”

Swank and Schneider, a social-venture entrepreneur, got married in a private ceremony in 2018 following a secret two-year engagement; during Wednesday’s segment, Swank revealed that twins run in both of their families. “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she said, adding that she is “so excited” about motherhood. Swank, who is starring in the new Hulu drama Alaska Daily, also spoke about the difficulties of hiding her pregnancy from her co-stars and the production team. “Clothes started not to fit so I had to … cut my jeans open. And then I put a jacket on,” she recalled. They “came and said, ‘That’s not in continuity.’ I said, ‘Oh, I think it works … I’m going to make it work.’”

In a preview of Friday’s episode of the The Drew Barrymore Show, Swank said her twins are due in April on her late father’s birthday; he passed away in October 2021. The actor also celebrated the news by sharing Instagram photos of her bump, captioned “Coming soon…DOUBLE feature” alongside two angel-baby emoji. In response to commenters who had some very rude things to say about Swank’s age, the actor’s You’re Not You co-star Emmy Rossum responded with a succinct “Gfy.” Yes, Emmy. Double congratulations to Swank!
