Rebecca Romijn On Pregnancy: "I'm A Beached Whale!"

In this week's Page Six Magazine - Rebecca Romijn, pregnant with twin daughters on the way, opens up about fertility drugs, maternity sex appeal and her split from ex-husband John Stamos.

On using medical intervention to get pregnant:

"We did not do IVF... A year ago, we tried [the fertility drug] Clomid for a couple of months unsuccessfully. But by the second month, I was like, 'Ahhh! I hate this!' I think when you start messing with your own hormones, it's crazy-making."

On her body during pregnancy:

"I can't move anymore...I'm a beached whale! ...I have not been without a bra this entire pregnancy. I refuse. I'm not taking any chances. I'm determined to keep the puppies up!"

On speculation that the cause of her 2004 divorce was that she did not want children:

"There is absolutely no truth to that. That [story] was completely made up. I desperately wanted kids. I was never a girl who dreamed about what her wedding day would be like, but I've always dreamed about decorating my baby's nursery."


On husband Jerry O'Connell's fathering skills:

I knew early on he would be a fantastic dad. He's a pragmatic, smart, savvy, enthusiastic person. He really lives his life with tremendous integrity, and he's a healthy person in every single way."


On parenting:

"I've just surrendered to the fact that [parenting] will be the hardest thing I'll ever do. I know my life will never be the same - but in the best way possible."
