How could actor Jerry O'Connell
and wife Rebecca Romijn
top Hollywood's trend of exotic baby names?
"We were joking about calling them Mary-Kate and Ashley," the 34-year-old father-to-be revealed to Entertainment Tonight
"I'm not kidding," he said of copying the Olsens' names. "I really thought about that."
O'Connell explained he and Romijn, 35, were also considering "maybe rhyming" the monikers.
"But then, is that a little Hansel & Gretel
?" he asked.
O'Connell - who is filming his new series, Do Not Disturb
, in L.A. while Romijn is taping Ugly Betty
in NYC - said he "can't wait" to welcome the tots.
"[Rebecca's] about five months pregnant
... getting big!" he reported.
"I'm really excited about having girls," he said. "I know guys are supposed to say, 'I want a boy,' [but] I just have a feeling I'm going to be good with girls.
"I'm just going to raise a couple of assassins," he added. "They're going to be tough chicks!"
But O'Connell will be strict.
"They are only having sex when I die," O'Connell he said. "If they don't date boys at all, and just want to be infatuated with their father, that is what I am really going for."
