Here's an example of what I have in /etc/rc.conf on one of my machines.
Your interfaces and addresses should be different.

#static network configuration
network_interfaces="lo0 igb0"
ipv6_network_interfaces="lo0 igb0"
ifconfig_igb0="inet netmask 0xffffff00"
ifconfig_igb0_alias0="inet6 2001:5e8:1:91:225:90ff:fe05:1dc2 prefixlen 64"
