Laying down the law! Rebecca Romijn revealed that when it comes to her twin daughters, Charlie and Dolly, she puts her foot down when she has to — even if it’s not always easy.
“They’ve been begging for phones,” she exclusively told Us Weekly of the 10-year-olds at the season 2 premiere of Star Trek: Discovery on Thursday, January 17. “That’s not happening for as long as I can possibly go.”
The former model, 46, has her reasons, however. “I’ve been told that grades suffer when kids get phones,” she explained. “So they’ll be 20 before I get them a phone! My kids are nagging me about it because of lot of their friends already have them. … [Those parents] are ruining it for the rest of us.”
The X-Men star said that between her and husband Jerry O’Connell , she tends to be the more strict parent. “I’m probably more of a disciplinarian than my husband,” she admitted to Us .
Even so, the Ugly Betty alum loves spending time with her growing girls. “They’re sassy. They just turned 10, double digits. It’s exciting. … The more developed they become, the more I enjoy them. They’re great human beings. I really enjoy my time with them.”
Romijn previously spoke about her preteens to Us in July 2018, revealing that they have felt more grown-up since getting their own rooms. “Like, all of a sudden, they’re more important than they used to be,” she said. “They feel like they’re all high and mighty. They’re acting like teenagers already.”
The actress and the Scream 2 star, 44, tied the knot in July 2007 and welcomed their children in December 2008.
