Hilary Swank has portrayed the role of a mom several times throughout her career, including American astronaut Emma Green in 2020’s Away. But does the Hollywood star has kids in real life? Keep scrolling for details! 

Does Hilary Swank Have Kids?

Though Hilary always thought about having children “since a really young age,” the Million Dollar Baby actress took her time to become a mom. She wasn’t worried about her journey through motherhood, as she told InStyle that she was waiting until “the time is right.”


The Boys Don’t Cry star opened up about finding love and having kids in 2010, telling the publication she “[believes] in the sanctity of marriage.” But because she endured a heartbreaking divorce with ex-husband Chad Lowe, whom she was married to from 1997 to 2007, she wasn’t interested to “rush back into” anything.

How Did Hilary Swank and Husband Philip Schneider Meet?

However, some time passed, and in 2014, she was “set up” on a blind date with Philip Schneider by actor Misha Collins’ wife, Victoria Vantoch, and “another close friend Jean.” Hilary gushed about their first date during an interview with Vogue, revealing they “met at 10 a.m. and parted ways at 11 p.m.” She sweetly added, “We clearly enjoyed our time!”

Following their incredible night out, the Oscar-winning actress and Philip — a social venture entrepreneur from California — quickly became a couple, though they kept their romance out of the spotlight. After getting secretly engaged in 2016, the lovebirds wed in a private and beautiful ceremony in Redwood National and State Parks in August 2018.

“It was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it,” the beautiful bride marveled to Vogue. “I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”

After Hilary and her beau officially said, “I do,” the two eventually decided to start a family, as Hilary announced in October 2022 that she was pregnant and expecting twins with Philip.

What Did Hilary Swank Say About Her Pregnancy and Having Twins?

“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m going to be a mom!” she announced during an appearance on Good Morning America. “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.”

She added that it having children is “such a blessing” and a “total miracle.” 

There’s no doubt Hilary is going to be the best mom!
