TWO'S ENOUGH: Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn say they won't have any more children.

Jerry O'Connell tries to ensure all his date nights with Rebecca Romijn don't consist of "eating mac and cheese at family style restaurants".

The Hollywood couple have made a vow to ensure that they always have time for each other.

The pair spoke to OK! magazine at Nivea's Millions of Moments of Touch event in New York City where they opened up about how they make their relationship work four years into their marriage.

"Once a week we have a date night," O'Connell told the publication. "But sometimes I don't really keep up with that promise a lot because we do have two little kids and we can't always find a sitter.

"I'm working here in New York and Rebecca has been in LA for a little bit, so I fly out on my day off.

"It's tough, but we do try to get at least one day a week [for] just the two of us, so we don't go crazy.


"Otherwise all of our dates would consist of going to see animated movies and eating mac and cheese at family style restaurants."

The couple, who are parents to twin daughters Dolly and Charlie, say that they are not planning on adding to their family.

"No! No! We are done!" Romijn exclaimed. "Two is enough! We don't want to be outnumbered.

"In a lot of ways we feel like it's easier [to have twins], and right now they keep each other so busy because they are each other's play dates.

"Right now, they are just getting potty trained, so diapers are now almost part of our history! No more disgusting diapers! So, in a lot of ways, it's getting easier and easier."

Romijn also shared how she got back into shape after having her babies.

"Do yoga," she said. "We like to do things together a lot. A lot of bike rides, hiking. We walk around the city a lot. We go to the gym sometimes."
