Actress Hillary Swank opened up about being pregnant for the first time and admitted she has a “whole newfound” respect for what women’s bodies can do.

During the 48-year-old actress’ appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Swank talked about her pregnancy journey so far with twins after she announced the exciting news in October that she and husband Philip Schneider were expecting.

“I feel like women are superheroes,” Swank explained. “What our bodies do? I have such, like, a whole newfound respect. I mean, I love women, I’ve always loved women, but now, I’m like, ‘Wow, we can do this!’”


“The first 16 weeks, I had a lot of morning sickness,” she added. “All I wanted was fruit. It’s not that exciting, I know, it’s not like pickles dipped in peanut butter, but a lot of fruit. But to the point that one of my co-stars when they found out I was pregnant, they were like, ‘Oh that’s why. That’s why you eat 10 pomegranates a day, 50 pears.’”

“I just couldn’t eat anything more than fruit,” the actress continued. “I know I needed that protein, so I threw some peanut butter in with my apples.”

In October, Swank shared the happy news that her dream of motherhood and being a mom was finally coming true.

“This is something that I’ve been wanting for a long time and my next thing is I’m gonna be a mom,” the “Million Dollar Baby” star shared during her appearance on “Good Morning America.” “And not just of one, but of two. I can’t believe it.”

Later, the actress shared that twins run in both her and her husband’s families, People magazine noted.

“I’m so excited,” Swank shared. “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable.”

The actress and Schneider, a social venture entrepreneur, tied the knot in August 2018. The pair were first spotted together in 2016, the outlet noted.
