Actress Hilary Swank (48) wishes her around 1.4 million followers on Instagram a happy Easter. Because the two-time Oscar winner proudly revealed on Easter Sunday that her twins were born healthy and sound. Captioning a picture of her from behind holding her two children, the ‘Million Dollar Baby’ star wrote: “It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter , I’m posting from the purest heaven.”

With that, the star immediately revealed the genders of the babies. Swank revealed on US television in early October 2022 that she is pregnant, but has so far kept quiet about what will happen. “I’m going to be a mom,” the 48-year-old gushed on Good Morning America at the time. “And not just one, but two [children],” she continued. After around two years together, the actress and entrepreneur Philip Schneider said yes in 2018.

A particularly touching constellation, however, was just missed: Swank had meanwhile revealed that the calculated date of birth of the twins was April 16th. That would have been exactly the birthday of her father, who died in 2021.
