Christmas is the time when we show our gratitude for everything we have. It is the time of love and forgiveness; the time when we reflect on everything we have achieved, and make new resolutions we hope will turn into a reality.
A huge number of people from every corner of the world celebrated Christmas this year. Many of them posted photos on the social media in order to share a glimpse of the magic their homes were filled with during the celebrations. Of course, celebrities were not exception.
They also shared plenty of photos of their Christmas trees, their families, and unwrapping gifts, but for one celeb, the most precious gift is yet to arrive.
Hilary Swank, the Million Dollar Baby star, who is a recipient of a number of awards, including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, is getting ready for her biggest role yet, that of a mother.
The actress, 48, is expecting twins.
Swank announced her pregnancy on Good Morning America in October, when she said that she and husband Philip Schneider would be on double duty. “This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” she posted on Twitter. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.”
A few days ago, Swank shared an adorable photo of herself posing next to her decorated Christmas tree while showing off her growing baby bump in red and white striped pajamas.
“We couldn’t wish for a more incredible miracle ✨ So grateful for these two gifts of a lifetime!! 🎁🎁 Merry Christmas Everyone!! Wishing you all miracles in your own lives in whatever forms they take. 🙌🏽#MerryChristmas #Miracles,” the mom-to-be wrote captioned the cute photo.
Speaking of her decision to become a mom later in life, the actress said that it was something she’s always dreamed of, but it was just a matter of timing.
“I was having a career and not having the right relationship until… four years ago, and all the elements needed to come together and be right,” she explained, and added, “It’s just something I thought about even as a young girl. It’s something that was on my mind, so it’s nice to be here and just be pregnant.”
The twins are due to arrive on a day that holds a special meaning for the actress.
During an appearance on Drew Barrymore’s talk show, Swank shared a touching coincidence.
“You just announced that your father passed away one year ago, and this miracle is happening,” Barrymore said at the time.
“Yeah, and they are due on his birthday,” Swank replied.
The actress received plenty of likes and comments on her adorable Christmas photo, with some of her fans saying, “Absolutely glowingly beautiful,” and “I love you!!! ❤️ So happy for you. You’ll be the best mom I can tell. Merry Christmas to you all and bless you!”
We are so glad Hilary Swank is having her greatest wish coming true.
