Romijn and O’Connell have been wed since 2007 and welcomed the twins December 28, 2009.
O’Connell, 47, told People last year that he made the most of the pandemic shutdown in spending time with the girls, as he figured he would ‘never get this time with them ever again.
‘This is it. Very soon, when this is all over and everything’s back to normal and kids are back in school all the time, I have a feeling parents are gonna be like, “Oh, it was kind of nice having my kids at home,”‘ he said. ‘I almost feel like, just because the age that they are, I’m getting a free extra year with them.’
He opened up about raising the pre-teens: ‘Normally, this is the age – I know, because I’m sort of experiencing it – where they want me to drop them off at school two blocks away so their friends don’t see me.

‘They want to be dropped off at the mall and hang out there for four hours, but they don’t want their friends to see me when I pick them up.’
O’Connell said that it’s ‘interesting being the father of girls,’ as he ‘never had sisters so it is a little different.’
Romijn was previously wed to actor John Stamos from 1998 – 2005.
Stamos, 58, who is father to son Billy, three, with wife Caitlin McHugh, 35, last month appeared on the podcast Life is Short with Justin Long, with O’Connell’s pal Long telling Stamos, ‘I just love teasing him about how handsome you are.’
Stamos said that he and McHugh have moved to an area near where Romijn and O’Connell live.
‘Well, we sort of moved near them, but I haven’t seen or talk to [Rebecca],’ he said. ‘But [Jerry] is funny about. I’ve seen some stuff – he said his kids watched Full House and said I was their dad or something. But he’s a funny guy – that’s a guy who works hard.’
He added: ‘I’m happy for them. That’s it. Just letting go, and – “God bless you guys, good for you. I’m here, you’re there.” But it took me a long time to get to any of that.’
In a podcast after-show featuring O’Connell, the Stand By Me actor said that Stamos ‘seems like a great guy.’
‘He recently moved really close to my family and I. So my kids have a joke when we’re driving – my kids are always like, “There he is, there he is” – my kids are dying to meet him. My kids are infatuated with him because of the Full House thing … they’re in love him, everyone is.’
