Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn renewed their wedding vows at 11.11am today (11.11.11).

The actor and actress put great significance in the number 11 within their relationship, so felt today was perfect to celebrate in a special way.

Jerry – who has twin daughters, two-year-old Dolly and Charlie, with Rebecca – told People.com: "If we happen to look at our phone and its 11:11, One Of Us always texts the other.

"There's two of us – Rebecca and I – and the two of our kids."

Jerry also came up with the perfect place in New York – where he is currently starring in 'Seminar' on Broadway – for them to perform their renewal.

He added: "A couple of nights ago, I said to Rebecca, 'We should renew our vows at 11:11 and 11 seconds on 11/11.' And she said, 'We should do it at 11th Street and 11th Ave.'"

The couple headed to the allotted point this morning, and Jerry says the ceremony - between just the two of them - was more emotional than expected.

He said: "I didn't think it was gonna be so emotional, but it kind of was - I think I was more emotional than my wife!"
