Her natural look was elevated with a touch of mascara, a glossy pink lip, and a hint of blush, while her hair was parted down the center and styled into a wavy look. For accessories, she opted for rings on her fingers, which she showed off in a semi-akimbo pose for her Instagram Story.

Opening up about her pregnancy, Swank disclosed that she had taken to consuming a suspicious amount of fruits in the first 16 weeks. The 48-year-old, who is expecting twins with her husband, Phillip Schneider, added that she was essentially in her third trimester — she has just entered her 27th week. In her words:

The beloved onscreen goddess also talked about how she had handled filming for the primetime drama "Alaska Daily" during her pregnancy. According to Daily Mail, Swank had to use a body double to do the walking scenes and a stunt double to run before she shared her good news with the world. She said:

"I'm pregnant, and I can't tell anybody. 'Guys, I think I'm a really bad runner. I need a stunt double to run.'"

Unfortunately, the higher-ups doubted her claims, making her take extra steps to prove that she was a lousy runner. Since she was never "a great runner to start with anyway," it was an easy task. Swank detailed that after she ran, the four men she was appealing to agreed that she needed a stunt double.

Soon after she shared the news of her pregnancy, Swank detailed why she waited so long before deciding to get pregnant. Per The Blast, the "Quiet Days in Hollywood" star explained: 

"I was having a career and not having the right relationship until four years ago, and all the elements needed to come together and be right."

"It's just something I thought about even as a young girl. It's something that was on my mind, so it's nice to be here and just be pregnant," she added. The "BoJack Horseman" voice actress had received a heads-up about what to expect from her hormones, especially since she is carrying twins. Swank recalled:

"My friends tell me when you have double [on the way], it doubles the hormones, doubles the sickness, doubles the everything."
