Hilary, who’s in her second trimester, said in another interview that she’s “feeling great right now” and that twins run in her husband’s family.

“It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable,” she said of being pregnant with two babies.

Hilary was previously married to fellow actor Chad Lowe, from 1997 to 2007.

The mum-to-be stars in the new TV drama Alaska Daily. In it, she portrays an investigative journalist seeking a fresh start in Anchorage.

Hilary has won two lead actress Oscars, for Boys Don’t Cry in 1999 and Million Dollar Baby in 2004.
