Jerry O’Connell hit the Teen Choice Awards red carpet yesterday, but just one thing was on the actor’s mind: his impending fatherhood – to twins.
“It’s very exciting,” he told Access Hollywood. “It really is.”
O’Connell, whose wife, “Ugly Betty” star Rebecca Romijn, is filming her hit TV show in New York presently, said the former supermodel is indulging in pregnancy cravings.
“A lot of ice cream, man,” O’Connell laughed. “And not any one particular brand, like hitting up a lot of the different ones at Ben and Jerry’s, but also other crazy brands.”
O’Connell said he’s doing what he can to help his pregnant wife.
“That’s all you can really do as the man is go out and get food,” he said. “I’m not really carrying anything, I’m not really putting on any extra weight, I’m just sorta trying to help out as much as possible.”
And as for the news that the couple is having twins, O’Connell said it might be down to a family trait.
“My father’s side, there [are] actually two sets of twins over there, back in the motherland of Ireland,” he said. “[Being pregnant] — it’s something we really worked hard at and it’s just happened. We’re blessed.”
