Hilary Swank has finally revealed the names of her twins.  

The award-winning actress gave birth to a baby boy and a baby girl in 2023. "It wasn’t easy. But boy (and girl!) was it worth it," the then 48-year-old wrote in April. 

Hilary has released very few details about the twins since her post. She also has chosen not to share any pictures of their faces.

Hilary is opening up a bit more about her new life as a family of four. 

The 'Million Dollar Baby' actress, who is married to entrepreneur Philip Schneider, revealed what name she gave her twins. 

She shared a picture of the siblings sitting on the beach with their backs facing the camera. Their names were written in the sand behind them - Aya and Ohm. 

According to TheBump, Aya means colourful and beautiful. Ohm is reportedly of Hindu origin.

"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," she wrote on Valentine's Day. 

The 49-year-old added: "Thanks for being here! P.S. Who else has babies that think sand is edible?"

Hilary caused a debate online when she announced that she was expecting her "miracle" babies in October 2022. 

"Coming soon…DOUBLE feature!" she captioned a picture of herself pointing to her growing baby bump on Instagram.

While many people congratulated Hilary on her exciting baby news, some people left nasty comments.

"AREN'T YOU LIKE 50 YRS OLD? Gonna be in your 70's when they graduate college. MIGHT live to see their wedding, maybe," one person said.

But Hilary, whose father Stephen Michael died one year earlier, was unfazed by the hate.  

"It's double the excitement. My grandmother was a twin. My husband's grandmother was a twin. So we have twins in our lineage," she revealed on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan'. 

Other celebrities who have twins include Moshe Ndiki, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyoncé.
