American actress Hilary Swank has just announced the birth of her twins.

On Instagram, Swank posted a photo of herself, from behind, carrying her boy and daughter in each of her arms. “It wasn’t easy,” the 48-year-old Oscar winner wrote.

She announced her pregnancy last year on Good Morning America. “It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time: […] I’m going to be a mom. And not just one, but two children. I can’t believe it,” she said at the time.

Hilary Swank welcomes her twins with her husband, entrepreneur Philip Schneider, whom she started dating in 2016 and married in 2018.

In recent months, she had been posting news about her pregnancy on social media, including showing a snapshot of an ultrasound or of her training with “the babies”.
