Yikes! Jerry O'Connell Continues To Be Afraid Of His 2-Year-Old Daughters: 'They're Like Baby Ghosts!'

Tue, September 14, 2010 9:30am EST by 3 Comments

The star of the new CBS drama The Defenders has complained about his daughters before, but now they’re actually starting to terrify him!

Jerry O’Connell probably never thought being a parent would be quite so scary, but now that he and wife Rebecca Romijn, 37, have moved their 21-month-old twin girls, Dolly (pictured above) and Charlie, from cribs to beds, his life has gotten a lot more … dramatic. “They keep coming out of their beds and you’ll be sitting there, like you’ll be on the computer, and one will appear in back of you – and it scares the crap out of me,” the 36-year-old told OK! magazine. “They’re like baby ghosts standing in the middle of the house.”

He also complained that the kids are, “real clutchy, needy. They’re always crying every time I pass them,” then added with a laugh, “somebody’s got to help me with these kids. They’re crazy!”

This isn’t the first time that Jerry or his wife have talked about how difficult their daughters have become. He has said that, “It never gets easier. It gets worse and worse and worse and worse,” and also referred to the girls’ behavior not as the “terrible twos,” but rather as the “horrifically terrible twos. Everyone says, ‘it gets better.’ That is not my experience.”

Even mom Rebecca has voiced her issues with the girls, saying they can be “so annoying!” The poor couple! How do you handle the terrible twos with your children? Any advice for the pair? Leave them some words of wisdom in the comments section below!

i definitely lose my patience with my daughter sometimes!!! but, i keep trying to remember that she’s two and they don’t understand much beyond the world revolving around them. work/money/needs- insignificant. watching her sleep, or hearing her say sorry or tell me that she loves me, usually buys a lot of patience from me toward her… but, yes, they are trying times! i’ll miss it when she’s too busy for me though, so i am trying to suck it all in for later reserves.

Sounds like they are trying to get your attention..Less time on computer and more quality time…This is what good Parents do..Get home from work and all attention should be on them.. Once they are sleeping a long, long time than it is time for the both of you..
