O’Connell talks about being a father to twin girls

Author James Dunsford
Submitted 21-11-2009

Actor Jerry O’Connell loves talking about his girls, specifically his 10-month old fraternal twins, Charlie and Dolly, with actress wife Rebecca Romijn.

Like all twins, the girls have their personality differences. O’Connell admits that one of his daughters is more demanding than the other, but he won’t admit which one it is.

"I just shouldn’t say, but one is a little more diabolical than the other one, but I like that…it shows spunk," he told People.com.

O’Connell also admits that sometimes he and his wife need to call in for extra help, a job the girls’ grandparents are more than willing to fill.

"We throw the kids at them and then we’ll take off for a couple of hours and go out to dinner. Even a quiet dinner at Chili’s away from the kids is just – I love them! – but it’s a relief!" he said.

O’Connell, who got his start in movies in the 1986 hit Stand By Me, is currently a stay-at-home dad during the day and a law student at night.

He points out that the fact the girls are Capricorns could end up working out for he and his wife. "It means that they’re going to be independently wealthy, so I’m hoping they can make some money and help fund my horse racing habit. Note I said habit and not addiction," he joked.ADNFCR-1662-ID-19465221-ADNFCR
