Hilary Swank might be the “Million Dollar Baby,” but soon she’ll have two more joining her in the ring.  

The Oscar-winning actress announced she is expecting twins during an interview Wednesday with “Good Morning America.” Robin Roberts cued Swank up to tell her good news on-air. 

“I’m so happy to share it with you and with America right now, this is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time,” Swank said. “I’m going to be a mom.” 

She added: “And not just of one, but of two.” 

Swank, 48, followed up the morning show appearance with a post on Instagram holding and pointing to her baby bump. 

“Coming soon…DOUBLE feature,” she wrote. 

The actress said on-air that having children was something she’s “been wanting for a long time” and that it was “so nice” to share the news with the world. 

Swank and husband Phillip Schneider married in 2018, and the twins will be their first children together. 

Their secret wedding in the redwoods of California was detailed in Vogue.

After two years of dating, Swank met Schneider at the altar wearing an ethereal Elie Saab couture wedding dress to add to the magical feel of the outdoor event. For a sweet treat after the celebration, the couple served a gluten-free and vegan cake. 

“A brilliant combination of FedEx and creative planning by Marcela (Pezet) delivered our perfect chocolate cake just in time for our wedding,” Swank said.

The couple wed beneath a family of 800-year-old trees with best friend Mariska Hargitay serving as the maid of honor. After the reception, the newlyweds slipped into matching Levi’s denim jackets embroidered with their joined nickname: Philary.

“Everyone was having so much fun and didn’t want the party to end, so we actually had to start dancing to wireless headphones into the wee hours of the next day, so the distant neighbors wouldn’t be kept up by the sound system,” Swank said.
