Former supermodel turned actor turned sexy mutant Rebecca Romijn has finally become a mommy! The Ugly Betty star, who at one point claimed she was ready to have the babies as she felt as big as a beached whale, gave birth to twin girls on December 28. In fact, Rebecca was so uncomfortable she had to skip pal Howard Stern's recent wedding and took to her bed long enough to make a hilarious video for Funny or Die.
Fraternal twin girls Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip are named in honor of Dolly Parton and husband Jerry O'Connell's brother Charlie. Somehow I knew they were girls, but that seems to not be such obvious information. It is beleived that O'Connell made a recent crack about naming the girls Mary-Kate and Ashley. That would be hilarious! I heard just now that the names are Charlie and Dolly (after Ms. Dolly Parton) but am not sure that is true.
Romijn tried in vain to become pregnant for a long time, ultimately opting to use Clomid, which I guess is a fertility drug, although she claims she stopped taking it several months before becoming pregnant with the twinsies. Hence, she and Jerry are claiming the duo were conceived of naturally. Hard to tell whether or not that's exactly true. Wouldn't it take a while to get something out of your system that affects your hormones? Whatever. I'm sure they felt the need to go on about that since practically every other celebrity out there has twins these days, via whatever means necessary.
Truthfully, all I really have to say on the subject is that Jerry O'Connell is the luckiest man alive. Seriously.
