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."

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."

Jerry O'Connell admits he made a big mistake.
The star of the new sitcom Do Not Disturb is apologizing to wife Rebecca Romijn – who is pregnant with twin girls – for joking about her size when he appeared on a late-night talk show Friday.
"I regret calling my wife 'huge' on Conan O'Brien," O'Connell tells PEOPLE. "I meant to say that there are specific areas of my wife that are larger than normal and growing every day. All other portions of my wife are quite petite. I apologize to her and will be coming home with flowers."

Forget pickles and ice cream. Rebecca Romijn has her own unusual cravings.
"Lemonade always has to be in our fridge," husband Jerry O'Connell told PEOPLE Sunday night before participating in the Nike + Human Race in Los Angeles. "That's my job. [Also] soy cream cheese. It's crazy, right? Can't be cream cheese. Soy cream cheese. Do you know how difficult it is to find soy cream cheese? It's usually in the corner of the supermarket someplace!"
The actress – who's expecting twin girls this winter – is "getting bigger by the day," added O'Connell, noting that he's already witnessed a big change in his wife's appetite.
"Meals are not missed," he joked. "We promptly hit them and if we're a little late, then ... somebody's not happy."

When it came to telling her TV colleagues that she and husband Jerry O'Connell would be having twins, Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn handled the announcement quietly before the news went public.
Not that their reactions were subdued. "[We're] so excited," said Betty star America Ferrera at Monday's New York City premiere of her movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
"I'm so happy for them," gushed Ferrera, 24. "They're going to be the best parents. I don't think there could be a more wonderful father to girls."

Their first wedding anniversary was Monday, but Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn had to spend it on opposite coasts.
O'Connell, 34, spent the day in Los Angeles at the Television Critics Association conference promoting his new Fox sitcom Do Not Disturb, while Romijn, 35, was at work on the third season of Ugly Betty in New York.
The distance hasn't been a strain for the couple, says O'Connell, adding that they keep in touch by texting and emailing photos on their iPhones.
"The only trying thing might be it's a lot of in-law time for Rebecca, because my parents live in New York," O'Connell joked. "I think Rebecca is being very patient and nice about it."
