Hilary Swank reveals twin babies’ unique names in sweet Valentine’s Day post

Actress Hilary Swank chose Valentine’s Day to introduce her million-dollar babies to the world.

On Wednesday, the Oscar winner took to Instagram, posting a picture of her 10-month-old twins. While she revealed their names, she kept their faces hidden in a picturesque seaside snapshot.

Swank, 49, had disclosed her pregnancy with twins during an appearance on Good Morning America in October 2022.

“This is something I’ve wanted for a long time, and my next adventure is going to be motherhood,” she shared then. “And not just of one, but two. I can’t believe it.”

Throughout her pregnancy, the actress shared minimal updates, but when she did, her joy was evident.

In April 2023, Swank announced the arrival of a boy and a girl with her husband Philip Schneider.

“It wasn’t an easy journey. But boy (and girl!), was it worth it. 👼🏼🤍👼🏼,” she wrote alongside a photo holding her newborns. “Happy Easter! 🐣🐣 Posting from pure Heaven. 🙌🏽.”


Since then, the couple has kept their children out of the spotlight, with the twins making only their second appearance on Swank’s Instagram feed.

The recent photo shows the twins by the ocean, with their names – Aya and Ohm – spelled out in leaves behind them.

“I have a busy week of talk shows ahead, where I’ll be sharing about my new film and a fun partnership, but I figured what better day to share the names of my two little loves with you all first,” Swank captioned the photo of her twins.


Reactions to the names were overwhelmingly positive, with many finding them adorable.
