After that, the star of 'Million Dollar Baby' appeared on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan,' where she continued the conversation about her health after entering the second trimester of her pregnancy. "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 gushed.

Hilary will next be seen in the upcoming episode of the ABC drama 'Alaska Daily', where she portrays the role of a discredited investigative reporter from New York who moves to Alaska to work for a newspaper. The TV personality also revealed that her co-stars and staff members on 'Alaska Daily' were unaware of her pregnancy. "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," she explained. "And [they] 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.'"

A gushing Hilary further added that "it's such a blessing. It's a total miracle. It's unbelievable," expressing her excitement at entering a new era. "What happened is nothing short of a miracle. It defies belief." The lead actress of 'PS I Love You' said that twins run both in her and her husband's family tree.

There is just no other way to describe it." She said, "I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true."
