Congratulations to Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell, who just confirmed that they are now the proud parents of twin daughters.

In a statement to OK!, a rep for the couple says, "Rebecca Romijn gave birth on Dec. 28 to two healthy daughters, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip. Mother, father and both girls are all home and doing well."

When the news broke of the pregnancy — the first children for both Rebecca and Jerry, the father-to-be told OK! he had initial thoughts of being a harsh dad.

"I was a little strict when I first found out I was having girls," he explained to OK!. "I was like, ‘They’re not allowed to date until I die.’ That was my original thought. They can date boys when I’m dead."

But after Rebecca brought him back down to reality, the Do Not Disturb star has eased up — slightly. "I said, ‘Okay, they can date when I’m alive, but it has to be with men who are currently — or heir to — running a country.’ Someone who is a world leader. They are allowed to date boys but it has to be a boy who is heir to a throne of a nation. I don’t care which nation – just a nation."
