"And not just of one, but of two!" she added. "I can't believe it. It’s so nice to be able to talk about it and share it."

After her GMA appearance, the actress, 48, swung by Live with Kelly and Ryan to share more details about her pregnancy. "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," she admitted. "But I'm feeling good right now."

"It's such a blessing. It's a total miracle," she declared of expanding her family. "It's unbelievable."

The Oscar winner found out she was expecting while filming her new series, Alaska Daily, but she did her best to keep quiet, even going as far as to alter her costumes herself.


In fact, she confessed that her announcement on GMA will be the first time the show's crew hears the news!

Swank has managed to keep her personal life out of the spotlight over the years, with the pair — who were set up on a blind date via a mutual friend — secretly becoming engaged in 2016 after a year and a half of dating. "We don’t know why [we] waited that long!" she previously admitted to Vogue.

In 2018, they tied the knot in a redwood grove located in California. "It was just timeless. There is just no other way to describe it," she recalled. "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."
