Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn ready for parenthood

Jerry O'Connell and wife Rebecca Romijn will soon be joining the ranks of expectant parents -- if their plans come to fruition.

"Rebecca and I are both looking forward to the next logical step," reveals the star of ABC's "Carpoolers" sitcom, who married the "Ugly Betty" actress last July. "We're married, and we both want children soon. That's our plan, and we can't wait."

The writers' strike that's crippling Hollywood could help them realize their plans, he says. Both have been idle from their series shooting for months now. And that, says O'Connell, "is giving us some very cherished time together. When we're working, we see each other very little. But with the strike … Well, I'm spending a lot of time gardening, she's become a chronic antique eBayer and does work with cross-stitching. But mostly we spend time together."

O'Connell's series has started an eight-week airing of segments that were shot prior to the beginning of the strike, but like the rest of the industry, he has no idea when he'll be able to return to the cameras.
