Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell Welcome Daughters Dolly and Charlie
It’s not one, but two baby girls for actors Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell, their rep confirms. Fraternal twin daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose O’Connell and Charlie Tamara Tulip O’Connell arrived on Sunday, December 28th in California. “Mother, father and both girls are all home and doing well,” rep Lewis Kay shares. Dolly is in honor of Dolly Parton, while Charlie is assumed to be for Jerry’s brother and Tamara for Rebecca’s sister.
The couple announced the pregnancy in July. Starting the fall off with a bang, Jerry, 34, put his foot in his mouth while appearing on Conan, calling his wife huge. Apology accepted, Rebecca, 36, debuted her belly soon after. The Ugly Betty actress graced the cover of Page Six magazine, where she proceeded to shoot down any IVF rumors — although they had previously tried Clomid, Rebecca says the twins are the result of Chinese acupuncture! Rebecca had been due in January.

Pam and Linda say:
“Dolly is an adorable nickname name of the kind that is hugely fashionable in England, where names like Alfie and Dottie and Barney and Betty, long out of style in the U.S., are the height of fashion. And since Rebecca is a Dolly Parton fan, the name has personal meaning, which is always a plus.
Another big plus: The couple obviously worked hard to give their girls names that were distinct yet exactly equal, with a nickname-name in first place, a Biblical classic family namein second place, and a flower name in third.
Dolly is a girly-girl name while Charlie is a quintessential tomboy, so it will be interesting to see how these different images play out in the girls’ personalities. And by the time she’s out of diapers, Dolly will undoubtedly have heard enough Hello, Dolly jokes to last her a lifetime.
All in all, fresh choices that were obviously arrived at after a lot of thought.”
