Rebecca Romijn Tries to Teach Twins Tag
"They're so active right now. They just literally run off in opposite directions," the actress, 37, explains. "When you're the only one who's taking care of them, it's scary sometimes. I've been trying to organize it by teaching them how to play tag
At only 16 months old, Rebecca Romijn‘s twin daughters’ “completely different” personalities are already shining through.
“Dolly is a little bit of a wild child and Charlie is very safe,” Romijn told PEOPLE Moms & Babies at a Huggies Jeans Diapers event in New York City Thursday.
“They’re so active right now. They just literally run off in opposite directions,” the actress, 37, explains.
“When you’re the only one who’s taking care of them, it’s scary sometimes. I’ve been trying to organize it by teaching them how to play tag [but] they’re not quite grasping the concept. We’re still working on that!”
Romijn’s other half, actor husband Jerry O’Connell, “is the best dad,” she says. “He’s great with them. Plus, he’s a big diaper changer. He’s more eager to change diapers than I am. I’m like, ‘Okay great, that job’s for you.'”
One of Romijn’s jobs? Dressing her daughters. “I try not to match them completely,” laughs the actress. “But I do like to coordinate them, especially because I know that they’re going to have a lot of opinions really soon. So I’m just trying to do whatever I can to dress them how I want right now.”
After taking time to work on the now-canceled Eastwick, Romijn is now staying home with Dolly and Charlie as O’Connell heads back to TV.
“Jerry’s show [The Defenders] just got picked up,” Romijn explains. “We’ve decided to tag-team with work right now. It’s really important to us that one of us be home with the kids primarily. He was taking care of them a lot when I was working last year and now I’m taking some time to be with the girls.”
Romijn and O’Connell have previously said that Dolly and Charlie completed their family. Have minds changed since?
“We’re really happy with two,” notes Romijn. “Two is perfect!”
