Appearing soon after on Live With Kelly and Ryan, the actor added, “I’m feeling great right now, even with the time — you know, I’m on Pacific time, so I’m a little cross-eyed with that. But I’m feeling good right now.”

She added that her Alaska Daily crew did not know about the pregnancy and revealed that she is into her second trimester.

“But my clothes started not to fit so I had to, the other day … cut [my jeans] open. And then I put a jacket on that wasn’t in continuity,” Swank shared. “And [they] came and said, ‘That’s not in continuity.’ I said, ‘Oh, I think it works.’ ‘It doesn’t.’ ‘No, it does. I’m going to make it work.’ She’s like, ‘If you’re an executive producer, you can do it, but this is weird.'”

Swank added, “It’s such a blessing. It’s a total miracle. It’s unbelievable.”
