Twins for Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell

Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca RomijnRebecca Romijn and husband Jerry O’Connell have been blessed with twin girls, named Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, born December 28. The twins are the couple’s first children. They were married in 2007. “Mother, father and both girls are all home and doing well,” Romijn’s rep Lewis Kay told  Romijn, who stars on the hit TV series Ugly Betty, was on bed rest for four months leading up to the birth. “I’m taking quite a bit of time off,” she told the website. “I really want this to be my job for at least the next six months. Jerry and I want to be very hands-on. My mom’s coming to help us as much as we need. But this is something we’re really looking forward to.”

    Tulip? Really….?

    Do these stars not realize that these cute little babies that they are sticking these weird labels on, are going to grow up into adults, will have to live their entire lives with these stupid labels?

    Congratulations to Jerry and Rebecca!! A healthy set of twin girls, they must be so happy! I’m happy to know that Rebecca is taking time off to bring up her own children as these stars who have kids and then go right back to work, miss their childrens first words, footsteps and have the babies knowing their nannies more than the parents, which makes me wonder why they bother having kids in the first place!!

    Let me gag on this here spoon..
    Tulip? It’s a child, not a novelty.
    It’s becoming so trendy to have 3 names, especially in Hollywood.

    I am very happy for this couple, they seem thrilled with the birth of their wee kiddies. A name is a very personal thing and I don’t think it right to fault anyone for the names they choose. I highly doubt they’ll be going by their “third” name anyhow.

    I have a friend who changed her complete name later in life to a name she loved (she had a very uncommon (to us) name due to her cultural background) – always an option for anyone when they are of age to choose and certainly not something they have to be stuck with their “entire adult lives”. Come on now.

    But congrats to them both and best wishes.

  6. My own opinion • January 6, 2009 @ 10:50 AM

    I’m surprised no one has made a comment about the unfortunate, eerily creepy photo accompanying the article. It looks very unnatural, as if they were walking down the street, saw a photographer, and Gerry needed to clumsily put an arm around his wife and say with a leer, “See the beautiful woman I can have. And she’s mine, all mine.”

    As for the names, they are certainly odd (Forget ‘Tulip’ buried in the middle, what about going by the name Dolly or Charlie?). And Jo-Anne, I think it is okay to question the names someone gives their children. They are “personal”, but they are foisting them upon a PERSON, not a piece of property. And yes, someone can change their name as an adult, so if they like odd names so much, why not change their own name rather than force it upon someone else? On the other hand, there have been worse examples than this (Moon Unit, anyone?)

    On a barely related topic, I have to say that Jerry O’Connell has has turned from a chubby kid into an amazing looking guy! Yay for will-power!

  8. demigod • January 7, 2009 @ 4:14 AM

    No, I won’t find fault with people with no taste (unless it’s cheesy). I’ll introduce them to my next-door neighbours, Popeye, his wife Olive Oyl, and their child Sweet Pea. They sound just as cartoony.

  9. tributegirl • January 7, 2009 @ 9:00 AM

    And Charlie for a little girl is a bit odd, isn’t it?

  10. Jo-Anne. • January 7, 2009 @ 10:48 AM

    that is the whole point, to them the names are not “odd” – onviously they like them.

    how controlling to think what we personally find tasteful should be branded onto other’s children.

    you can’t judge a book by its cover speaks volumes here…

  12. mandee • January 7, 2009 @ 2:00 PM

    i completely think the names are idiotic. they obviously wanted a boy and not 2 girls, or else they wouldnt have named her charlie! also, on the whole name changing topic, some people would be too respectful to their parents than to just say hmm i wanna change my name today. and what about all those kids who get bad names that ARENT born rich? ive heard its like 1000 to change your name legally. where would they get the money? and taking into consideration that these ARE celebrities that want to name their children such ridiculous names, they are fully aware EVERYONE is going to know what the name is, and im sure they are even fully aware most people wont like the names. maybe thats the whole reason they do it?

  13. Jo-Anne. • January 7, 2009 @ 3:03 PM

    oh my God, you are actually disagreeing with me????? causing problems – AGAIN?????? ha ha
    rest easy no worries

    p.s. my friend paid zip for her name change, very minimal paperwork cost

    and what if the kids think the names are “idiotic”, like you, would they still want to be “respectful” to their parents? Hmmm…huge huge dilemma

  14. Nancy • January 7, 2009 @ 4:18 PM

    Well, I read mandee’s comment and there was NO direct reference to you…so WHO keeps causing the problems?

  15. mandee • January 7, 2009 @ 4:28 PM

    thanks nancy, you read my mind! i was not directly commenting at anyone, once again i was just simply stating my OWN ADULT opinion. wonder why you have such a problem with it jo? i dont cause problems until you open your big mouth and stick that big nose of yours in where it clearly does not belong 🙂 if you wanna have a debate thats just fine and dandy, im in, but if you DO wanna have a debate, how about we act MATURE about it? and everything i heard is it costs money to change your name. thats all i said.

  16. mandee • January 7, 2009 @ 4:35 PM

    p.s. and fyi i have no problems with my name, im just saying if my name was say…joanne-billy-idiot i would not wanna be disrespectful to MY parents and change it, when they were the ones that picked it out. 🙂 apparently, you think YOURE the only clever one around here?

  17. Jo-Anne. • January 7, 2009 @ 5:34 PM

    no, I’m not the only clever one around here, not by a long shot, but ADULT one…hmmm

    and you request “how about we act mature”
    really now, mandee.
    when does that start with you?

  18. tributegirl • January 7, 2009 @ 6:38 PM

    I think probably to them the names ARE odd, but yes, oBviously they liked them or they wouldn’t have picked them out. And I never said that what I find tasteful should be “branded onto other’s children”, I just said that I think the names are stupid. That’s my opinion. But you should be ok with that Jo, you are always preaching about how we all have the right to express our own opinions, right?
    And “you cant judge a book by its cover speaks volumes here”, just what do you mean by that? We can’t judge these children by their names? Who was judging them? We were talking about their NAMES, not who these children really are.
    Troublemaker through and through.

    i will act mature and like an adult with you, when you learn to stop criticizing EVERYTHING i say, and when you learn to stop insulting me and trying to degrade EVERY possible thing that i type. i told you, when you act like an adult, im ready and willing to act like one too.
