I’m working a lot lately in Firebase and when trying to setup Firebase Hosting for one of my domains, Firebase showed me the following dialog:

I poked around on the Internet for a while and didn’t find the answer in the Google Domains documentation or through a Google Search. I used the Google Domains contact form and was quickly on a chat where a support technician showed me the simple solution.

Put in the first address, click the highlighted + button to open a panel that allows you to add the second address. Easier than expected, but hard for me to notice that button.
