Hilary Swank may have just given birth to her twins with husband Philip Schneider, but she is already reminiscing about her time being pregnant, which she says was "one of her favorite moments."

Days after announcing the birth of her twins, a girl and a boy, on April 9, the actress took to Instagram to share a never before seen glimpse of a special maternity shoot she did when she was 27½ weeks pregnant.

À la Demi Moore circa 1991, the star posed nude for an intimate black-and-white portrait.

For the beautiful shot, Hilary opted for a total au-naturel look, cradling her growing bump with one hand, the other covering her chest. She is wearing little to no make-up, and her hair is styled in soft waves.

"Thank you @brianbowensmith for capturing one of my favorite moments in time, being pregnant," she wrote, adding: "Next to having my babies earth-side and meeting and marrying my husband."
