Having a birthday that falls between Christmas and New Year’s can be tough. But Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell are determined to properly celebrate their twin girls’ birthday on Dec. 28 — now that they’re turning 5.

“I think it’s time they finally get a birthday party for once,” the actress and model, 40, told PEOPLE on Wednesday at the premiere of the movie Ass Backwards in Los Angeles.

Up to now, Dolly and Charlie haven’t really wanted to celebrate their birthday, but that’s changing now that they have more friends.

“We can’t even get them to open presents on their birthday. They’re like, ‘We’re still sick of presents from Christmas,'” says Romijn.

Between wife Rebecca Romijn and their 4½-year-old twin daughters Dolly and Charlie, Jerry O’Connell is surrounded by women — and still getting used to it.

“Do I mind playing with dolls? Yes, I have an issue playing with dolls. Do I play with dolls? I play with them every day,” he jokes to PEOPLE. “My daughters are right in that sweet spot for that princess stuff.”

In addition, their changing personalities have begun to come to a head in a way that recently caught O’Connell off-guard.

“I have two girls. One was always feminine, always [wearing] dresses and very girly and then the other one only wanted to wear pants and t-shirts,” he says. “But the one who wore pants and t-shirts now wants to wear dresses and they had their first argument over a dress.”

With mom away, Rebecca Romijn‘s twins get plenty of time to play — in the airport bathrooms.

As the actress spends her time on location in Vancouver for King and Maxwell, husband Jerry O’Connell has been busy bringing the couple’s 4½-year-old daughters back and forth from Los Angeles to the Canadian locale.

Fortunately, Charlie and Dolly have found that arriving to their final destination is only half the fun.

“They love visiting airport bathrooms, which we all have to do together — three people in a bathroom is no joke,” Romijn, 40, tells PEOPLE.

“They love going on the airplane so that’s all they really care about.”

Two kids were always in the cards for Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell.

Despite battling infertility, the couple planned for a future as a family of four — and were doubly blessed when they discovered that not only was Romijn pregnant, but they were expecting twins!

And while tackling twins is tough, the couple are taking on the task alone — without the help of a full-time nanny.

“We’re each other’s assistants. We pick up each other’s slack. Whoever is less busy helps the busier one: ‘Can you go pick up this for me?’ or ‘Can you book my flight?'” Romijn, 40, says in Redbook‘s August issue.

“That’s what real life is. Once you start paying somebody else to do the grunt work, who are you?”
