“It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it. Happy Easter! Posting from pure Heaven,” she captioned a photo that saw Swank standing on what appears to be a terrace gazing out to a sunset over the water.
Standing in a robe, both her babies were seen over each shoulder.
Many of her celebrity friends and followers took to the comments to congratulate the new mum.
“Happy Easter Mama 💫,” fellow actress Kate Hudson said.
“Congratulations!!!!!!!!! God bless! 🙏❤️🎉,” Lindsay Lohan wrote.
“So happy to see you turkeys soaking up the sea, the sun and the salt air! Love you. Welcome to planet Earth little ones. Hope you have a lovely stay here,” actor Misha Collins added.
Neither the names or birthdates of the babies were shared in the announcement.
The arrival comes five months after Swank first shared the news of her pregnancy, revealing a child was “something that I’ve been wanting for a long time”.
“My next thing is I’m gonna be a mum. And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it,” Swank said on Good Morning America at the time.
Swank was relieved to share the news, adding, “It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it”.
Cast and crew on her latest project, Alaska Daily, didn’t know she was pregnant until the announcement, she added.
While on set, Swank had to make subtle adjustments to her character’s wardrobe.
“My clothes started not to fit so I had to, the other day … cut (my jeans) open. And then I put a jacket on that wasn’t in continuity,” she said.
“And (wardrobe) came and said: ‘That’s not in continuity.’ I said: ‘Oh, I think it works.’ ‘It doesn’t.’ ‘No, it does. I’m going to make it work’.”
Swank went on to call her pregnancy “such a blessing”.
“It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she added.
The New Year’s Eve actress also appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan, where she said, “I’m feeling great right now, even with the time, you know, I’m on Pacific time, so I’m a little cross-eyed with that. But I’m feeling good right now.”
Swank and Schneider began dating in 2016 and were married in August 2018.
