At least one of Hilary Swank’s twins is sending a message in utero that they will not live in their mother’s shadow. In an ultrasound the actor shared on Sunday, we see “Baby A” showing off a pretty impressive bicep. Even the ultrasound technician was amazed and wrote “Million Dollar Baby” on the picture.
“Baby A flexing for the camera at their ultrasound. 💪🏽🤣,” Swank captioned the post. “#TheRealMillionDollarBaby #Prizefighter“
Swank is perhaps best known for her performance in Million Dollar Baby, a movie in which she plays an underdog amateur boxer who (spoiler alert) achieves her dream of becoming a professional. Swank went on to win the Oscar for Best Actress, so yeah, she’s kind of known for her muscle power.
And now, here comes Baby A with their own display of strength! It’s actually pretty epic.
“Tell me you’re Hilary Swank’s baby without telling me you’re Hilary Swank’s baby,” one fan commented.

And what about Baby B? We haven’t gotten a glimpse at their arms, but one commenter is convinced they’re just hustling Baby A, coming off as the underdog while preparing to strike.
“Baby B don’t have to flex they’re already playing with A’s head by doing nothing,” another follower wrote. “This is a long game they’re in.”
During the filming of her television show, Alaska Daily, the mom-to-be proved she also has a million-dollar mind. Swank was in her first trimester when shooting began, and she wasn’t quite ready to tell the cast and crew.
Her biggest hurdle was that her character is an avid jogger, and with two buns in the oven, the 48-year-old was not wanting to break a sweat. Though viewers may only see one-minute-long jogging scenes, those can take a couple of hours to film from different angles. And so she was determined to get herself a stunt double, she told James Corden during an appearance on The Late Late Show.
“I was like, ‘You guys, I’m a really bad runner,’” she told her coworkers. “‘I need a stunt double to run.’”
Well, as you might have guessed, the crew thought that was a bit extreme and asked her to prove it.
“And I was like, ‘Ok how do I look like real bad — I’m not a great runner to start with — but I really gotta sell this so I can use this double,’” she said.
As you might have also guessed, the Academy Award-winning actor is just as good at playing a bad runner as she is at playing a great boxer. And so she and her twins — who Swank is expecting in mid-April with husband Philip Schneider — secured themselves a stunt double! And now we can’t help but wonder, will Babies A and B inherit the “really bad runner” gene too?
