Rebecca Romijn and husband Jerry O’Connell have welcomed healthy twin girls, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip were born Dec. 28.
“Mother, father and both girls are all home and doing well,” Romijn’s rep Lewis Kay told PEOPLE.
They are the first children for the Ugly Betty actress, 36, and actor O’Connell, 34, who married at their Calabasas, Calif., ranch in 2007.
The new mom, whose pregnancy cravings included lemonade and soy cream cheese, is planning a long maternity leave.
“I’m taking quite a bit of time off,” Romijn told PEOPLE in November. “I really want this to be my job for at least the next six months.”
As for their parenting style? “Jerry and I want to be very hands-on,” Romijn told PEOPLE. “My mom’s coming to help us as much as we need. But this is something we’re really looking forward to.”
“I’m really excited to see what happens next and to visit a completely different chapter in my life.”
See Rebecca without a drop of make-up!
