For all intents and purposes, Rebecca Romijn seems to live a charmed life: the stunning model has gone from cover girl to a woman who not only acts, but also seems to balance her personal and professional lives with ease and class. With actor husband Jerry O’Connell, she has sixteen-month old twin daughters, Charlie and Dolly. And while the girls are still so young, she’s more than ready for them to start growing up. “I’m so excited to get to the next spot,” she shared with us last week at Huggies’ denim-look diaper event. “I know a lot of mothers are like, ‘Oh they were so little, I wish they were still little,’ but I’m the opposite. I can’t wait for them to start playing hide and seek.”
And while her two daughters may seem like angels to the public eye, she insists it’s not that easy. When posed the question of how she manages a public tantrum with not one but two little screamers, she responded, “If we go out to a restaurant and they start acting out – which happens fairly often – we scoop them up and take them right outside.” Even so, Romijn suspects her daughters are smart enough to know that tantrum removal. “It just ends up being one-on-one time with Mommy or Daddy, and that’s usually what they want!”
As for her biggest lifestyle change?”We’ve ended up changing the type of restaurant that we attend,” she laughed. “You go to family-friendly places; you seek out the places that hand you Cheerios and bananas, crayons and a piece of paper as soon as we sit down.” Sounds good to us.
