Jerry O'Connell Is Not Comfortable Hiring a Male Nanny

Jerry O’Connell may be playing a male nanny on the upcoming fourth season of Mistresses, but he says he is not comfortable hiring a manny for his own children.

“I’m not sure if given the chance to hire myself as a manny in my family, I don’t think I would allow that to happen,” the 42-year-old actor told Us Weekly. “I’m sorry if that’s closed-minded of me. I just wouldn’t allow that – I wouldn’t be comfortable with that. I would explain to my wife and to my children that I was not comfortable with a manny around.”

Jerry and his wife Rebecca Romijn are the parents of seven-year-old twin daughters Dolly and Charlie.

“It’s funny – when you’re a parent, and you have kids, when you see a crying baby, you just go to it,” Jerry continued. “You just do. I’m shocked I’m that person as well because before I had kids, I didn’t really care for them. [But] especially these little babies in showbiz, they are cute little babies. You can’t help! Feeding the baby again, it really made me want to have another one.”
