Having a child together is a huge accomplishment for Hilary Swank and Philip Schneider, and they’re celebrating it by having a baby shower.
The actress made the joyous announcement on the October 5 episode of Good Morning America that she is expecting twins.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is going to be a mom,” Swank stated. “Moreover, not just one, but two. I refuse to accept it.”
A year and a half into their relationship, Swank and Schneider reportedly got engaged in a secret ceremony in 2016.
They had a small, intimate wedding in the California Redwoods in August of 2018.
“The music was classic. There is no better way to put it, “Swank revealed her marriage to Schneider to Vogue. She was previously married to Chad Lowe from 1997 to 2007. “Being married to the man of my dreams, and seeing all of our loved ones gathered together amid such a magnificent setting, left me feeling an overwhelming sense of appreciation and thanks. The experience lived up to all expectations.”
Since then, they have rarely been seen together in public, opting to keep their romance low-key.
