Rebecca Romijn is happily obsessed with her 5-month-old daughters Dolly and Charlie.
“All I want to do is stare into my babies’ eyes nonstop!” she confesses in the June issue of In Style magazine, adding, “Being a mom makes me feel whole and like I understand the meaning of life.”
The model mom isn’t the only one who is smitten with the girls – she says that her husband Jerry O’Connell has been “having a blast” since becoming a father.
“He’s got endless amounts of energy, and he’s having such a blast with these girls,” Rebecca reveals. Though she admits he’s just a tiny bit protective of the twins, saying, “He’s determined not to let them ever date while he is alive.”
As for choosing InStyle for their adorable daughters’ debut, Rebecca says they picked the mag with the girls in mind: “What girls wouldn’t want to be featured in InStyle? We figured they would be happy with this choice in 18 years.”
The new mom looks gorgeous on the cover of the issue – and you’d never guess she gave birth to two babies just months ago! Though she’s almost back to her pre-baby form, Rebecca says that sex appeal is more about attitude than a flawless figure.
“I feel as sexy as I have ever felt. I’m a jeans size up from where I usually am, but there’s nothing about it that freaks me out – I’ve always said that sexy is having a really strong sense of yourself and never taking yourself too seriously.”
Like most moms, she admits that she’s having fun with all of the adorable baby clothes – though she knows that soon enough Charlie and Dolly will be wanting a say in their wardrobes.
“I know they’re going to have a lot to say by the time they turn 2, so until then I get to dress them however I want.” Rebecca points to Madonna’s daughter Lourdes as a junior celebrity style icon, saying, “She’s doing new wave postmodern Punky Brewster geek chic. She’s one to watch.”
