Following her appearance on Good Morning America, the Million Dollar Baby star spoke about her pregnancy in an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Hilary shared that twins run in both her and Philip’s families and that she is “so excited” for this journey. “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” the 48-year-old gushed.
Hilary and Philip were first spotted together as a couple in November 2016. Philip asked Hilary to marry him while the two were in Colorado. The actress recalled the moment sharing, “We stumbled upon a beautiful sanctuary deep in the mountains. It had a stunning waterfall that cascades down to rustic cabins built in the 1800s surrounded by beautiful pines and big skies. One evening, Philip dropped to his knee in front of the waterfall and proposed—he sweetly made sure my dogs were nearby so they could bear witness!” The couple tied the knot two years later in August 2018 in the Redwoods in California.
Congratulations to Hilary and Philip on the news of their twins! We wish them all the best as they prepare to become parents.
