(Newser) – Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell’s twin girls have arrived, Us Magazine reports, with Howard Stern announcing the births on his radio show this morning. The pair are dubbed Dolly Rebecca Rose, after mom's favorite singer Dolly Parton, and Charlie Tamara Tulip, after, er, dad's brother.

Romijn, 36, whose bed rest forced her to skip Stern’s October wedding, said she was ready to give birth by November: “I can’t move anymore—I’m a beached whale,” she told the New York Post. The TV stars, who wed in 2007, “are going to be the most fun, zany parents in California,” Romijn’s Ugly Betty co-star Vanessa Williams said in September—and “the kids are going to be gorgeous.”
