Her mother, Elizabeth (née Kuizenga), is a Community College teacher of English as a Second Language and textbook author. Her father, Jaap Romijn, is a custom furniture maker.[2][3] Her father is a native of Barneveld, the Netherlands, while her mother is an American of Dutch and English descent; she met Romijn’s father while staying in the Netherlands on a teenage exchange program.

Romijn’s maternal grandfather, Dr. Henry Bernard Kuizenga, was a Presbyterian minister and seminary professor.

When questioned about always being glamourous and beautiful on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Romijn revealed that as a child in her early teens she was in fact an insecure ‘drama geek’, and as a result of her growth spurt she suffered from scoliosis and was constantly in pain.

 

Many sources say that she was once nicknamed the “Jolly Blonde Giant” because of her 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) height, but she has admitted to making that up “for a laugh”.

While studying music (voice) at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Rebecca Romijn became involved with fashion modeling and eventually moved to Paris for more than two years.

On September 19, 2005, Rebecca Romijn announced her engagement to actor Jerry O’Connell. They were married on their ranch in Southern California on July 14, 2007. On July 28, 2008, it was announced that Romijn was pregnant.  Romijn and O’Connell welcomed twin daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip on December 28, 2008. Dolly is for singer Dolly Parton’s first name and Charlie is for O’Connell’s brother.
