Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank, 48, has welcomed her “miracle” twins to the world – a boy and a girl – with husband Philip Schneider.
The Boys Don’t Cry star took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of herself holding the newborns while watching the sunset over the ocean.
“It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it,” she captioned the photo posted on Easter Sunday.
“Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven.”
Celebrities including Viola Davis, Kate Hudson and Sharon Stone were quick to flood Swank’s post with well wishes.
“Aaaaahhhh!!!!! Congratulations,” Viola Davis wrote.
“Happy Easter Mama,” Kate Hudson added.
“God bless honey. This is the most extraordinary journey ever so happy for you all,” Sharon Stone commented.
The two-time Academy Award winner revealed she was pregnant with her first child in October 2022, showing off her baby bump on Good Morning America.
The Million Dollar Baby star gushed during her interview with hosts Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa, saying she “can’t believe it”.
“It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” Swank said at the time.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mum. And not just of one but of two.”
The Hollywood A-lister has been vocal for many years about wanting children, telling People magazine in 2006: “I definitely would like kids someday”.
“That’s definitely something that I’ve always thought about as a very, very young girl.”
At the time she was married to actor Chad Lowe who she met at a Hollywood party in 1992, but the pair later divorced in 2007.
She went on to date her agent John Campisi from 2007 to 2012 and has been married to her now-husband, Philip Schneider since 2018.
The actress and social venture entrepreneur were set up on a blind date and tied the knot four years later in a secret ceremony at the Saint Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California.
“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,” she told Vogue Magazine at the time.
