The personal life of Jerry O’Connell
Stand by Me actor Jerry O’Connell is married to his girlfriend, Rebecca Romijn (former model and actress). The couple first met at the party in 2004 when Romjin was with then-husband John Stamos.
O’Connell told People about his first meeting,
“I met my wife and her ex John Stamos at a party when they got married. I remember thinking, “Wow. This girl is really beautiful and funny. I spoke to him all evening. My wife remembers that party and remembers we clicked. We clicked. My wife and I clicked. We clicked the first time we met. “
Although the couple had instant chemistry, O’Connell revealed that nothing had happened between them.
In 2005, Romijn divorced her Stamos. After the divorce, O’Connell started dating her and eventually started dating her. O’Connell told their story,
“I spent time with her pretty much all day and with her friend. We went out to dinner that night, a group of us. It wasn’t some sort of date. Then her friend, a guy said to me: “Take her phone number. I think she wants to call you. “I worked. I got her phone number and called her and then we met after that trip back to Las Angeles to Los Angeles. We went out.”
“I want to tell you about my wife, and my wife says she’s funnier than me, but we met. We started hanging out. I came for a slumber party & hellip; and I never left. It’s the truth. We just clicked. “
After dating for months, the couple announced their engagement in 2005. O’Connell proposed it during their trip to New York. He said,
“I can’t believe she said ‘yes’ when I asked her to marry. I’m still waiting for Aston Kutcher to show up and tell me I’m ‘Punk’. ‘
Finally, the couple got married on July 14, 2007 in a private ceremony in Los Angeles attended by 100 families and friends. The bride wore a Ralph Lauren dress and Neil Lane jewelry to their wedding.

A few months after their wedding, the couple announced that they were trying to get pregnant. Later, a publicist confirmed that Romjin was pregnant with twins. O’Connell said a few words about having children,
“I’m delighted to have daughters. I know guys are supposed to say, “I want a boy. I want to play baseball, ‘but I think I’m going to be good at raising girls … I can’t wait. They will be tough girls. They only make love when I’m dead. If they don’t date boys at all and just want them to be infatuated with their dad, that’s what I’m really looking for. ”
On December 28, 2008, the couple welcomed named twins, Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip O’Connell. Their first child Dolly is named after singer Dolly Parton while their second daughter Charlie is named after O’Connell’s brother.

The couple have been together for over a decade and are still going strong without any rumors of divorce.
Previously, O’Connell dated American-Italian television personality Giuliana Rancic from 2003-2004. After their breakup, Rancic accused him of cheating with singer and songwriter Geri Halliwell. Rancic wrote:
“Was I twice for one of the less important spices?”
“He was as emotional as the customer service rep who told you your luggage missed the flight.”
O’Connell has finally responded on Watch What Happens Live,
“For those who don’t know. Giuliana Rancic is a personality and she wrote a book and we dated and then we didn’t date and, uh, I was in the book. ”
“I don’t want to say anything negative. She was a very nice girl. We had a really fun time. It was decades ago. (A decade, actually.) I mean, I don’t believe cellphones were in use then. I think it was horse and buggy. It was you know, it was awhile ago. ”
In addition, he was linked to several women, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Estella Warren and Debra Pelletier.
