Yep, they know about Uncle Jesse! Jerry O’Connell revealed during Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, April 22, that his and Rebecca Romijn’s twin daughters know that their famous mom used to be married to John Stamos.
The Jake and the Never Land Pirates actor revealed the little tidbit to host Andy Cohen and fellow guest Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky!) after explaining that Dolly and Charlie, 6, are big fans of Stamos’ beloved series.
“Full House is on a continual loop,” O’Connell, 41 said. “Because they expressed, like, real feelings for the character of Uncle Jesse, I said, ‘You know girls, I gotta tell you something. This is gonna be crazy…'”
But it gets better! O’Connell told Loughlin, 50, that he actually showed them Internet photos of Romijn and Stamos’ wedding. Loughlin, who was Stamos’ TV wife on the show, was in attendance when they exchanged vows. “It was a beautiful ceremony,” he said.
Romijn, 42, and Stamos, 51, called it quits in 2005 after nearly five years of marriage. The actress, who told Us Weekly in November 2013 that she has “no idea” what the hunky star is up to these days, went on to marry O’Connell in 2007. That same year, she told Redbook magazine that people still call her Romijn-Stamos!
Apparently, O’Connell’s now informed daughters can’t seem to forget about the past too. “My kids really want to know why Mom isn’t still with him,” he said on WWHL. “[They say], ‘That was a mistake, Mom.'”
