Rebecca Romijn Christmas Card

Tags: 

If any other family tried this for a holiday card, it would have turned out pretty lame, but Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell pulled off the dreaded matching-pajamas pose with their family perfectly.

The couple posed for their Christmas photoshoot with twin daughters Dolly and Charlie, along with their three dogs and two cats, and Romijn shared the adorable photos on Twitter.

"Happy Holidays from all nine of us!!" the "King & Maxwell" star writes.

Rebecca Romijn's family playing cards

With two Hollywood parents family time all together must be moments few and far between. So spending a whole day together in the park must have been heaven for Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O’Connell and their gorgeous twin girls. The family found a nice grassy knoll to sit down on and laid out a blanket to sit down on.

And while the acting couple can no doubt afford more high tech entertainment the family enjoyed a number of rounds of the card game Uno together.

Jaap Romijn - Designer, Maker and Creative Force

Port Townsend is blessed with a wonderful array of craftspeople. In this occasional series we'll highlight them. Plus we can be bribed - Undertown Coffees are a great currency.

Jaap Romijn emigrated to the US from Holland many moons ago and put himself through college working as a gardener. He's also worked as a street entertainer. Art and sculpture have been his first loves and that creativity shines through to his furniture.

Jerry O'Connell

Jerry O'Connell has a nickname on the set of his ABC sitcom, Carpoolers. "It's the big joke on my set. Everyone on Carpoolers refers to me as 'Stamos,' " says the actor, 33, who first connected with audiences as a child in 1986's Stand By Me. "Stamos," of course, is a devilish nod to John Stamos, the ex-husband of O'Connell's wife, Rebecca Romijn.

Rebecca and Jerry's Family Visit

Rebecca Romijn is taking fiance Jerry O'Connell to Holland this week for "a huge family reunion. I haven't been back in a couple of years," reports the gorgeous blond actress currently riding high at the box office with "X-Men: The Last Stand."

The Romijn gathering has been in the works for months. Afterward, the couple is planning a Euro vacation. "I'm taking a break. I've been kind of busy," notes Rebecca.

Rebecca's Youth Part 1

If you'd seen Rebecca as a child, dancing around to show tunes in her family's home in Berkeley, California, you wouldn't surprised that she wound up basking in the spotlight. "She wasn't a quiet, passive little girl," admits her mother, Elizabeth Kuizenga. Romijn admits that she was shy and awkward, wearing long johns under her pants to augment her skinny legs. Tamara vouches for it: "She was terribly shy. When she wanted to go buy something, I would take her by the hand up to the counter, and buy it."
