Jerry O’Connell Says Twins Are Hard Work

“Nothing prepared me for what it would be like to raise twin girls,” Jerry says. “When one quiets down, the other one starts up. At night, I am sleeping more than my wife – who is a saint. She has to get up.”

Sleep-deprived or not, Jerry’s wife Rebecca Romijn is already back to work filming her new series The Witches Of Eastwick. The whole family spends the day on the set so that busy mom Rebecca can breastfeed when she gets a break from shooting.

“I watch the kids at work,” Jerry reveals. “It’s good – they like coming to another place. Although, she had a kissing scene today, and it must have been weird for the other actor, to know she has kids and a husband nearby!”

Jerry says that despite his best intentions to be a strict dad, he worries he’s already becoming a pushover.

“I really thought I was going to be a very strict father about what they could wear, when they could go out and all that. But now that they’re starting to smile at me, I just know they’re going to walk all over me. If I don’t see them for a couple hours, I miss them so much.”

He is holding firm to one rule, though: The girls will have to run all boyfriends by their protective dad when the time comes. “They’re only allowed to date men who are heir to the throne or are currently running a nation,” he jokes (at least we think he’s joking!)

    I don’t know of ANY heirs to the throne or anyone currently running a nation that I would want my daughters to KNOW let alone date!

    He’d rather his daughters date someone like DubYa or like that dope that is Prince Harry than, say, a nice, intelligent librarian? Jerry, you’ve always struck me as a halfwit, now I know it’s true. Even if you were joking, this joke is pretty telling.
