It seems Million Dollar Baby star Hilary Swank is ready to have a baby of her own! The 44-year-old actress and her handsome new hubby, Philip Schneider, just wed over the summer in a gorgeous outside ceremony and now, the two are “ready to start a family as soon as possible,” according to a new OK! magazine report.
“She finally feels she can live up to her own very high standards of being a devoted mom,” a friend of the couple told OK!. “She just didn’t have this level of self-assurance 10 years ago, but Philip makes her feel so confident.” Aww!
Hilary’s social venture entrepreneur beau took her off the market after a year-and-a-half of dating. The couple met unexpectedly after mutual friends arranged a blind date that ended up lasting more than twelve hours, HELLO! previously reported. Sounds like a successful first date to us!
Fast forward to 2018 and the couple wed in a 100-year-old barn just outside their home in Los Angeles. “The second we saw this magical redwood grove in the middle of a 20,000-acre preserve, we knew it had the exact feeling we were trying to evoke,” Hilary told Vogue while gushing about how much she and Philip love being outdoors.
The wedding was everything Hilary wanted and more. ‘It was timeless,” she proudly said. “There is just no other way to describe it. 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.”
Hilary’s marriage to Philip is her second. The Freedom Writers actress was previously married to Chad Lowe for 10 years before they divorced in 2007. She was also engaged to Ruben Torres in June 2016 before ending it just one month later. We are so happy for Hilary and Philip and can’t wait for the day when they become parents!
