Jerry O’Connell introduced his twin daughters on Live with Regis and Kelly today!
“I don’t want to be one of those guys who is like, ‘Look at my babies,’ ” Jerry, 34, said, joking with Kelly Ripa while cohosting the show on Friday. “The second you have kids, you can’t help but be like, ‘I happen to have some photos of my children.’ ”
Jerry and wife Rebecca Romijn welcomed twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, on December 28th.
Since becoming a first-time dad, Jerry is learning a lot – and has become a bit health and hygiene-obsessed.
“I do wash my hands all the time,” he said, noting that he also picked up one important tip: How to properly change his daughters’ diapers and wipe. “Front to back,” Jerry noted, prompting laughs from Kelly and the audience.
One other tip to parents: Speak to children like they are adults.
“I really try to not speak in baby talk,” he said. “I want them to be intelligent.”
As for his growing family, Jerry said he’s super-thrilled that he has twins. “These are my first kids and Rebecca’s first kids, and you can’t imagine just have one. It’s so much fun to have two of them. You throw them in the crib and they just play with each other.”
Jerry also credited his wife for being so hands on.
“I have to give a lot of kudos to my wife,” he told Kelly. “[She] is now waking up every three hours and doing what we call the ‘Double Football,’ ” Jerry said. “They eat at the same time!”
