On movie sets and on stage, Jerry O'Connell may have limits to what he'll do for a laugh from his audience. But at home, he finds himself doing just about anything to get giggles out of the fraternal twin girls he and wife Rebecca Romijn welcomed last December.
Luckily, they're a generous audience. "I think of myself as a funny guy but nobody thinks I'm funnier than my daughters [Charlie and Dolly]," O'Connell, 35, tells PEOPLE. "We have three dogs. If I act like one of the dogs with the dogs, they go crazy. It's like we're talking Richard Pryor in his heyday."
O'Connell, who has been taking care of the girls while his wife films her ABC show Eastwick, says his 8-month-old twins even laugh when he's trying to discipline them.

Jerry O'Connell is hitting the books: The actor has enrolled at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.
"I had always planned on continuing my education at some point," said the star who is dad to twin girls with wife Rebecca Romijn and because my wife is working on Eastwick, which is on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. this fall, and I'm home all day with the girls, I figured I would take a couple of classes at night. "
As for how else he would have possibly passed the time? "It was either [law school] or play video games until 2 a.m.," he joked
Leslie Steinberg, Assistant Dean of Public Affairs at the school, told E! Online that the actor is enrolled as a part-time student and began attending classes last week.

While Rebecca Romijn plays witch by day – she is currently promoting her new fall series, Eastwick – and mother by night, her husband Jerry O'Connell has happily stepped up to the plate in his own new role: Mr. Mom.
With the couple welcoming their fraternal twin daughters Charlie and Dolly seven months ago, and the actress filming the pilot shortly after their birth, the girls were brought along for the ride.
"They were with me every second of the day," said Romijn. "I was still nursing and I was on a real strict schedule with them."

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's twins may only be 5 months old, but their personalities are starting to show through – especially their sense of humor.
"They're really developing their own, very specific personas," the Ugly Betty star told PEOPLE at the Dior Beauty Luncheon Wednesday at the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica. "They're starting to think that things are hilarious, like they're noticing the dogs as being anything other than furniture. The dogs were play-fighting the other day and they thought that was hysterical."

Just three months after giving birth to twins Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, Rebecca Romijn is taking motherhood in stride.
"She's the most relaxed mom I've ever seen," actress Lindsay Price, Romijn's costar in the upcoming ABC series Eastwick, told PEOPLE Wednesday at a party for Charlotte Ronson and Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss's Made With Love swimwear line hosted by Lucky magazine at New York City's Thompson LES hotel. "With twins and the demanding schedule of one-hour television, she keeps her cool. She never drops a line. She's completely present. I don't know how she does it.”

With their twin girls, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, born Dec. 28, Jerry O'Connell says his wife, Rebecca Romijn, is performing double duty in the breastfeeding department.
"I don't know why I'm getting nervous saying this," the proud – and jumpy – dad tells Ellen DeGeneres for Friday the 13th's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I'm not saying anything dirty, it's natural but [Rebecca] does what we call the double football – which is just incredible, because it's like three beings attached," he says. "It's like something out of Cirque du Soleil. It's crazy."

What could be better than becoming a new uncle to your brother's twin daughters? For Charlie O'Connell, having one named after you!
The consummate jokester tells PEOPLE that when he learned Jerry O'Connell and sister-in-law Rebecca Romijn named one of their little girls after him, he immediately thought, "[this] is going to help with my credit."
O'Connell, 33, who met Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose in the hospital shortly after their Dec. 28 birth, says, "to see the baby and have Charlie meet Charlie was a real special moment." He adds that the fraternal twins were "taking their turns" crying and sleeping in the hospital: "They seemed pretty independent."

Impending fatherhood is turning Jerry O'Connell into a real man – around the house.
"We cleared out a bedroom, actually not a bedroom, it was my aunt and uncle's old stuff," O'Connell, 34, told PEOPLE at Saturday's The Hills: A Staged Reading at Hollywood's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.
"I had my computer and video games in there. That got cleared out for the kids. So, I'm wondering what I'm going to do with my video game stuff. But, maybe that goes out the window when you have kids."
