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.
