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.

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."

Rebecca Romijn started her career as a model – and, following in her footsteps, her 4-month-old daughters have now posed for their first fashion photo shoot.
Featured with her girls for an InStyle magazine spread, the actress says that Mom is her most rewarding role to date.
"Being a mom makes me feel whole and like I understand the meaning of life," Romijn, 36, tells InStyle for the June Sexy issue, on newsstands May 22. "All I want to do is stare into my babies' eyes nonstop."

What's Rebecca Romijn's body-after-babies diet secret? Breastfeeding.
"It's like you have to eat 5,000 extra calories a day or you can't produce enough food for them. So, that's been fun as well," the actress tells Extra.
Romijn, 36, has lost nearly 60 lbs. of pregnancy weight since giving birth to twins Charlie and Dolly four months ago – all without exercising.
"I think within the first three weeks, I took off like 35 lbs. without doing anything!" says says. "I haven't been able to work out that much because I have twins. It's impossible to get back into a regular schedule."

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."

It's baby talk all the time now on the Ugly Betty set.
Mark Indelicato tells PEOPLE that everyone couldn't wait for a first look at costar Rebecca Romjin's 6-week-old twins with husband Jerry O'Connell.
"We got pictures of Dolly and Charlie," Indelicato says at the Cinema Society screening of He's Just Not That Into You. "They are beautiful. Charlie is literally bigger than Dolly. Charlie's face is round and shmushy."
Of course, Jerry and Rebecca's twins should prepare for some competition for attention since costar Ana Ortiz is expecting her own bundle of joy.

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."
