Talking about her pregnancy further on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan', the Oscar-winner recalled how she’d managed to keep her pregnancy secret, even from the cast and crew on the set of her latest project Alaska Daily.

She said that she actually had to try and make changes to her character's costume to conceal her bump, saying, “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 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.'"

The couple's happy news comes four years after Hilary tied the knot with her husband Philip in 2018 after initially meeting on a blind date.

Congratulations Hilary and Philip!
