Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell always talk candidly about the craziness of raising twins (daughters Charlie and Dolly). The couple recently chatted about the daughters’ opposite personalities and who plays the role of disciplinarian in their home.
They both shared:
“This morning we had a little issue. One didn’t want to wear a shirt to school and we tried to explain to her that shirts are pretty much mandatory. No shirt, no service. She wanted to wear her pajamas to school and she wanted to do just the pajama pants, no shirt. So that was quite an incident.
“When we dropped her off this morning, she ran right to [her teacher] and [started to cry] and was pointing at me,” O’Connell shares. “‘He took my shirt,’ and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, I made her wear a shirt. I feel God awful about it.’”
Rebecca says she’s definitely the “bad cop” to Jerry’s softie daddy who hates to say no to the girls:
Jerry Joked: “I would say I definitely make my wife bad cop. I feel awful about it. When they ask for something like ice-cream, I always say, ‘I want to give it to you, but your mom won’t let me.’”
Rebecca added: “They won’t eat any dinner so he goes, ‘You know what? I’ll take you out for ice-cream instead!’ I’m like, ‘No, no no!’ Every single time they ask me for something and I say, ‘No, I’m sorry,’ they go, ‘Daddy do it! Daddy do it!’ It’s true. They’re right.”
Rebecca shares that the girls are very different from one another:
“She’s much more open to people. She wants to sit on all the laps of the girls in the dance studio … and is a little bit more afraid of new experiences and the other is much more open to new experiences and a little shy with people. “
I do love that Rebecca and Jerry don’t specifically point out which daughter is which when they tell stories and talk about their differences. The girls will appreciate that when they’re older, I’m sure.
