Former Ugly Betty star Rebecca Romijn and husband Jerry O’Connell welcomed twin daughters Charlie and Dolly 16-months-ago. The family-of-four are often spotted together enjoying family time, and appear to be a down-to-earth family. In an interview with lilsugar, the model-mom, opened up about how she and O’Connell are letting their daughters choose their own path without putting any labels on them.
On divulging birth order to their children: “This may sound strange, but we decided before they were born — I had a c-section so they both came out at the same time — that they wouldn’t know which one was born first. Technically, one did come out first, but we feel like a lot of twins get to brag —”I was born five minutes earlier. I was born first.” and the truth is they shared the womb. We’re also curious to see if the one who is older naturally takes on that first sibling role.”
On dressing the girls alike: “I like to coordinate them, but I don’t like to match them. It’s funny because I know they are seconds away from having very strong opinions on what they wear so I’m taking advantage of these last few months where I dress them how I want. I usually give them choices and say, “Do you want to wear this or that?” and they pick.”
