Some men complain that women are hard to understand. But here's a simple, easy rule that husband Jerry O'Connell -- husband of Rebecca Romijn, who is pregnant -- learned the hard way: Don't call your wife "huge," even if she's carrying twins, and especially not on national TV.
Jerry was joking with funny man Conan O'Brien, himself a dad of two, on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Jerry told Conan, "I will look at her, and I will go, 'My goodness... you are huge!'" Conan, aware of the very deep and dangerous pile Jerry had just stepped quickly tried to distance himself from Jerry, saying, "I just say [to wife Liza], 'Baby, you look beautiful... You don't say, 'Oh, you're huge!'"

Though it was all in good fun, a repentant Jerry issued a statement the next day: "I regret calling my wife huge on Conan O'Brien. I meant to say there are specific parts of my wife that are larger and growing every day. All other portions of my wife are quite petite. I apologize to her and will be coming home with flowers."
Keep digging, Jerry. Keep digging. The couple are expecting twin girls in January, so if putting his foot in his mouth hasn't taught Jerry his lesson yet, life with three women in the house will.
