Pregnant Hilary Swank has revealed her “miracle” twin babies’ due date.
The 48-year-old actress shared the date’s special link to her late father, Stephen Michael Swank, while appearing on “The Drew Barrymore Show.”
“They’re due on his birthday,” she said in a preview of Friday’s episode, getting visibly emotional.
“Yeah, I know. It’s like, [wow].”
Stephen, who died in October 2021, was born on April 16.
Hilary announced her pregnancy on “Good Morning America” Wednesday, confirming that she was “far enough along” in her second trimester to go public with the news of her and her husband Philip Schneider’s growing family.
“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time, and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” she said in the interview. “And not just of one but of two.”
The “Alaska Daily” star added that she “can’t believe it,” later gushing to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that she has been “feeling great.”
Hilary’s news comes four years after she and Schneider tied the knot in August 2018.
While celebrating their anniversary via Instagram the following year, the bride wrote, “It’s been a year! The best of my life…besides the first year…and second year together. Happy one year wedding anniversary, to the love of my life.”
The Oscar winner was previously married to Chad Lowe from 1997 to 2007, and she spoke to People about her family plans before splitting from the actor.
“I definitely would like kids someday,” she said in 2006. “That’s definitely something that I’ve always thought about as a very, very young girl.”
After their divorce the following year, the “Million Dollar Baby” moved on with agent John Campisi and athlete Ruben Torres. She began dating Schneider in 2016.
