Rebecca Romijn was out and about in Beverly Hills yesterday. As most of you probably know, the "Ugly Betty" star and her hubby Jerry O'Connell are expecting twin girls in January. While the couple is ecstatic, the father-to-be found himself in hot water a few days ago when he appeared on Conan O'Brien's late night show and called Rebecca "huge." Ouch. Thankfully, he did damage control immediately.
"I regret calling my wife 'huge' on Conan O'Brien," Jerry told People magazine. "I meant to say that there are specific areas of my wife that are larger than normal and growing every day. All other portions of my wife are quite petite. I apologize to her and will be coming home with flowers." Aww.
I also heard the dreamy actor on the Adam Carolla radio show this week, where he revealed that Rebecca, who is a very big Dolly Parton fan, is planning on naming one of their twin girls Dolly. O'Connell apparently gets to name the other one.
When Adam suggested a unisex moniker like Jerry, the actor didn't shoot the idea down. "I actually have a brother named Charlie, which I think is kind of cute for a girl," he shared. "And my grandfather's name was Stanley. I kind of like that for a girl, too." But Jerry, who recognizes that there is a part of him that wants to give his girls boy names, also realizes that may not be the best way to go. "I'll probably let Rebecca name the second girl, too," he laughed. "I'm pretty easy."
