Jerry O'Connell: Having 5-Year-Old Twins Is 'A Living Hell' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

When actor, husband and father Jerry O’Connell, joined Ricky Camilleri in the HuffPost Live studio to talk about his work with the Life Is Good Playmakers, the subject of his twins, Dolly and Charlie, quickly came up in conversation.

The O’Connell girls are 5-years-old now, and when asked how it all was going, O’Connell replied with a laugh, “It’s hell! It’s a living hell.”

He joked that he’s gone so far as to dissuade his friends who are considering parenthood. “I have a lot of friends who are like ‘Hey man, I’m thinking about making the jump and having kids,’ and I’m like, 'Why?' No, I mean, my kids are really cute, but they’re nuts. And I have girls so they really tell me what to do.”

Camilleri noted that O’Connell was the only guy in the house, but he said the family has male dog, so he doesn’t feel completely outnumbered all the time. “Yeah, we go hide in the bathroom and just talk to each other,” the actor joked.

O’Connell went on to talk about his own childhood and much more. Watch the clip above and click over to HuffPost Live for the complete segment.
