O'CONNELL FEARED FOR SECURITY OF ROMIJN'S RING

Actor JERRY O'CONNELL was petrified in the days before he proposed to his fiancee REBECCA ROMIJN, because he feared somebody would rob him of the expensive ring he bought for her.

The KANGAROO JACK star spent a small fortune on a diamond ring for the blonde beauty ahead of asking for her hand in marriage last month (SEP05).

And he admits keeping the ring secure was as nerve wracking as the proposal itself.

O'Connell says, "I bought a car and that's a big cheque, but it's a car and you get an alarm and you get a lo-jack and you get the club and you're able to protect it. And you only park it where someone can watch it under a light.

"I bought an apartment, that was a big cheque, and you get to lock the door and there's a gate.

"But a ring is like something you just have in your pocket, man. The only security you have is like your jeans. And when I would have that in my pocket - and I carried it around for a couple weeks - it was all I could think about."

O'CONNELL SHOCKED BY DIAMOND PRICES

JERRY O'CONNELL was so shocked by the price of diamonds when he was hunting for an engagement ring for his fiancee REBECCA ROMIJN, he was tempted to buy her a cubic zirconia instead.

The KANGAROO JACK star proposed to blonde beauty Romijn last month (SEP05), and handed her a stunning diamond ring after she accepted. But he admits that he'd have happily settled for a cheaper gem, because he knows so little about jewellery.

He says, "The scariest part is getting the ring, because I have never bought a piece of bling in my life. First of all, I never realised how expensive jewellery is. It's really expensive!

"And then you learn the different stones. There's diamonds, which are everybody's best fried. But I learned what a cubic zirconia is, abbreviated as CZ. And I was like, 'Wow, look at all these jewels, this is amazing! What's that big one there?' They were like, 'Oh, that's CZ - cubic zirconia.' And I was like, 'How much is that one?' They were like, 'Substantially less.' I was like, 'Well, what's wrong with those?'

"It's not a diamond, though - and if you get caught you're busted! You can't get busted with CZ. Now if I were a rapper and I had to have a lot of jewels for work, I'd have CZ all over me."

O'CONNELL FEARED PUBLIC REJECTION FROM ROMIJN

Actor JERRY O'CONNELL ditched his initial plan to propose to his fiancee REBECCA ROMIJN in a sports stadium, because he feared getting rejected before thousands of spectators.

The KANGAROO JACK star asked Romijn for her hand in marriage earlier this month (SEP05) in the New York City apartment he grew up in, after abandoning plans for a more grand proposal.

He says, "It's kind of scary because you're popping the question, it's like a pop quiz, it's a surprise question. So when (I was) first planning it I was like, 'I'm gonna do it at a baseball game, I'm gonna do it at a Yankees game or Rebecca's from Berkeley, do it in Oakland.'

"And then you realise, because you're popping the question, what if your significant other says no in front of 50,000 people? So I (opted) to do it very privately where if no happened I would be the only one who knew about it. It was just the two of us."

JERRY AND REBECCA ROMIJN ANNOUNCE THEIR ENGAGEMENT

9/23/05

Congratulations to Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn, who announced their engagement earlier this week. Reports that the announcement was made on the anniversary of Rebecca's marriage to John Stamos are true, but the timing was purely coincidental. According to a post made in the Jerry O'Connell Fan Forum, Jerry proposed on the weekend of the 18th with no idea that it was the day before Rebecca & John's anniversary. News quickly spread and the couple was forced to come out with a public statement on the 19th.

This was the breaking news story printed in the October 3rd 2005 issue of Us Magazine:

Us Weekly October 3 2005 Page 47

Jerry & Rebecca: They're Engaged!

She split with ex-husband John Stamos just last year, but supermodel Rebecca Romijn is ready to love again! As Us Weekly first reported, Romijn, 32, and boyfriend of one year Jerry O'Connell, 31, are engaged. "Jerry popped the question over the weekend [of September 17]," a source close to the couple tells Hot Stuff. (The engagement news was confirmed by her publicist.) The Crossing Jordan star asked for Romijn's hand at his family's NYC apartment. The insider adds, "They've only told their closest family members and friends." (As for all the baby rumors swirling, the source insists, "She is not pregnant!") On September 19, O'Connell and Romijn -- who, the source says, is now "sporting a humongous diamond ring" -- hopped an early morning flight to Los Angeles. "It looked like they hadn't slept in a few days," says a passenger, who spotted them cuddling in first class. "But they were glowing!"

Here is the report from Vogue.co.uk:

(September 23 2005, AM)
REBECCA ROMIJN-STAMOS and Jerry O'Connell announced their engagement on Monday this week. The news came on the day that would have been the anniversary of the model's marriage to John Stamos, to whom she was married for six years.

Actors Rebecca Romijn And Jerry O'Connell Get Engaged
The 'X-Men' and 'Kangaroo Jack' familiars had been dating for a year.

Now that all the pop-culture junkies out there have finally learned to drop the "Stamos," Rebecca Romijn might be picking up a new third name to plaster across movie posters: O'Connell.

The stunning model/actress and her boyfriend of a year,


fellow actor Jerry O'Connell ("Kangaroo Jack") were engaged over the weekend in New York.

"We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the couple said in a joint statement."

No additional details were immediately available from either of the actors' representatives.

The 32-year-old Romijn, whose acting career has grown considerably in recent years with roles in the "X-Men" films, "Femme Fatale" and "The Punisher," was previously involved in a high-publicity marriage (and equally high-publicity) divorce with "Full House" actor John Stamos. O'Connell, who first gained prominence as a child actor in the classic film "Stand by Me," will be embarking on his first marriage at age 31.

The announcement caps a busy 2005 for Romijn and her future husband, who recently wrapped filming on the Ben Affleck drama "Man About Town." Their professional careers have also crisscrossed in "The Alibi," a Steve Coogan-starring romantic comedy which has yet to be released.

Rebecca Gets Engaged

Another day, another beautiful Hollywood couple announce they're going to tie the knot.

However, the fella X-men stunner Rebecca Romijn has chosen for 'hubby number two' wasn't always such a sex symbol.

Rebecca is preparing to head down the aisle again after divorcing TV actor John Stamos.

And the man she's said 'yes' to is actor Jerry O'Connell - who once dated Sarah Michelle Gellar and was linked with Geri Halliwell during the filming of Fat Slags.

But the role he's best remembered for is playing picked-on fat kid Vern in 1986 hit movie Stand By Me.

Having blossomed with age, Jerry caught the model-turned-actress' eye when they worked together on the film Man About Town in 2004.

A statement from the pair confirmed they plan to marry, saying: "We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives."

With E! Online reporting that Rebecca has been given "a humongous diamond ring" we're not surprised she's a happy bunny.

Romijn Ready for Marriage No. 2

by Gina Serpe
Sep 20, 2005, 12:25 PM PT

Rebecca Romijn and John Stamos couldn't make a full house. Now she's trying again with a new beau.

The model-actress and her boyfriend of a year and a half, actor Jerry O'Connell, are engaged, Romijn's publicist, Lewis Kay, confirmed to E! News.

"We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to the next chapter of our lives," the obligatorily giddy couple announced in a joint statement Tuesday. No wedding date has been set.

According to Us Weekly, which first reported the engagement, O'Connell, 31, popped the question over the weekend at his family's New York City apartment, sealing the deal with "a humongous diamond ring."

The magazine also quotes an unnamed source close to the couple saying Romijn, 32, "is not pregnant." Baby rumors have dogged the couple for months.

This will be the second matrimonial go-round for Romijn and first for Crossing Jordan star O'Connell.

The couple met on the Vancouver set of the Ben Affleck romantic comedy Man About Town in April 2004, just after Romijn's split from Stamos following six years of marriage.

She finalized her divorce from the former Full House star in March and reverted back to her nonhyphenated maiden name.

The longtime bachelor O'Connell, whose credits include Stand by Me and Sliders, was previously in a longterm relationship with E! News anchor Giuliana DePandi, with whom he was briefly engaged. He had also been publicly linked with former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The couple are now back in Los Angeles for some heavy-duty wedding planning--and their respective day jobs.

Aside from sharing credits on Man About Town, which is slated to open in early 2006, and the indie romantic comedy The Alibi, due out this year, each has several solo projects in the works.

Romijn is reprising her role as the blue-hued, shape-shifting Mystique in the X-Men 3, which is currently shooting. She is also set to star in the WB's midseason replacement Pepper Dennis as the titular ambitious reporter.

O'Connell, meanwhile, has three films in the pipeline, including the computer-animated feature Cat Tale, in which he provides voiceover work alongside Sean Astin and David Cross. O'Connell returns as Detective Woody Hoyt for Crossing Jordan's fifth season, kicking off next Monday on NBC.

Secret wedding?

By 24 hours news services

Model-turned-actress Rebecca Romijn is heading back down the aisle - she's reportedly planning a secret New Year's Eve wedding to actor Jerry O'Connell.

The star started dating O'Connell shortly after she split with ex-husband John Stamos, and now she's hoping to become Mrs. O'Connell as 2005 becomes 2006, reports sfgate.com.

Friends claim the wedding is the real incentive behind Romijn's recent drastic weight loss.

A source says, "As far as she's concerned, it's just as well that everyone thinks the movie ('X-Men 3') producers pressured her into losing the weight.

"Since they started planning the wedding, Rebecca realized she would have to go through several fittings for her gown. She wanted to look her best."
