Rebecca Romijn grew up in sunny California, she started modeling after about a year of college at UC Santa Cruz.

Rebecca had not planned on being a model, she did it to make a little money to visit Paris for the summer, having plans to go back to college in the fall.

Romijn was asked by Elle magazine in April 2002 whether making Femme Fatale had given her any new ideas about her sexuality. She said, "You know, in my early twenties I wondered if I was interested in women and so I kind of, well ... did my homework. [Grins] And it turns out I'm pretty straight".

On September 19, 2005, Romijn announced her engagement to actor Jerry O'Connell. They were married on their ranch in Southern California on July 14, 2007. On July 28, 2008, it was announced that Romijn was pregnant. People magazine reported that the babies were conceived without the assistance of fertility drugs.
