Jerry O'Connell stuns twin daughters with mum's marriage link to favourite TV star
Jerry O'Connell's daughter was gutted when she discovered her mum was once married to the star of her favourite TV show, Full House.
The actor thought it would be fun to finally tell Dolly, one of his twin girls, that her mother, Rebecca Romijn, was John Stamos' ex, but he had no idea she'd be so upset when she learned the truth.
"My daughters, Dolly and Charlie, who are both 10, love Full House - and more than that Stamos' character Uncle Jesse," Jerry explained during a recent 92nd Street Y interview event. "It's their jam.
"I said, 'I'm gonna show you girls something and it's gonna blow your little minds away', and I open my computer and Googled 'Romijn/Stamos wedding', enter, images. My one little precocious daughter, Dolly, said, 'Oh my God, mom was married to Uncle Jesse?'
Then she turned to me with tears in her eyes and added, 'Why isn't mom still married to Uncle Jesse?'."
Romijn and Stamos divorced in 2005, two years before the model-turned-actress wed O'Connell.
