LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Being a new mom isn’t slowing down Rebecca Romijn.
“I feel as sexy as I have ever felt,” the model-actress told InStyle magazine for their June issue cover story, where she poses with her new twins, Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose, and shows off her svelte post-pregnancy body. “I’m a jeans size up from where I usually am, but there’s nothing about it that freaks me out — I’ve always said that sexy is having a really strong sense of yourself and never taking yourself too seriously.”
Having kids, she said, “makes me feel whole.”
“All I want to do is stare into my babies’ eyes nonstop!” she added.
And lending a helping hand is husband Jerry O’Connell, who Rebecca said is a great hands-on father.
“He’s got endless amounts of energy, and he’s having such a blast with these girls,” she said.
But the caring dad is already worried about the future, she added.
“He’s determined not to let them ever date while he is alive,” Rebecca joked.
For now, her babies have inherited her fabulous fashion, but Rebecca said it’s only a matter of time until they strike out on their own.
“I know they’re going to have a lot to say by the time they turn 2, so until then I get to dress them however I want,” she said.
But once her kids are old enough, Rebecca hopes they’ll look to another celebrity kid for style tips – Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes.
“She’s doing new wave postmodern Punky Brewster geek chic,” Rebecca said. “She’s one to watch.”
