Rebecca Romijn

According to the list I published this morning, today is the birthday of Rebecca Romijn. According to everything I read about her to prepare for this post, her birthday is really November 6. She's so smoking hot I think she deserves at least two birthdays a year though.

Rebecca Romijn (pronounced "Romaine", like the lettuce) was born on November 6, 1972, in Berkeley, California. Her father was Dutch-born and worked as a custom furniture maker; her mother was American-born, of Dutch descent, and was an English teacher. Rebecca attended Berkeley High School where her nickname was the "Jolly Blond Giant." Then she attended the University of California at Santa Cruz where she majored in Music, but left in 1995. Rebecca (in her own words): "I was a freshman at UC Santa Cruz, really poor and restless to see the world. I used to sit in my dorm room, thinking, I just know I'm missing out on something. But, of course, I had no money. And so this friend hooked me up with an agency, and it happened very quickly. I moved to Paris, got a cover of French Elle, and stayed for two and a half years." This tall (5' 11") blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty was a natural for modeling, and has posed for Sports Illustrated, Christian Dior, Victoria's Secret, to name only a few. Rebbecca is known as both an actress and a supermodel.

Rebecca first met her first husband, John Stamos in 1994, at a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and had her first date with him in Disneyland. They married in September 1998 and divorced in 2005. As of 2007 Rebbeca is married to Jerry O'Connell.
