Rebecca Romijn Shows Off Husband Jerry O'Connell Powerlifting Poodles In A Speedo On His Birthday

If you pay even the smallest bit of attention to life, you'll know that, sometimes, romantic relationships can be a challenge. While us regular folks can have a hard enough time maintaining a healthy and happy relationship, though, it seems that it becomes an even more difficult process when things like fame and super busy careers enter the picture. This, of course, can lead to some of our favorite famous couples not lasting for very long, but Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell seem to have found an important key to longevity in humor, as Romijn just showed her hubby off on his birthday as he powerlifted poodles in a Speedo.

Now, both Rebecca Romijn and her husband of 13 years, Jerry O'Connell, have been known to display a wonderfully light-hearted sense of humor quite frequently, so it should come as no huge surprise that O'Connell would even think to do such a thing as powerlift poodles while wearing what is, perhaps, the tiniest of male swim attire, or that Romijn would then post that activity on Instagram for the entire world to see. Take at look at the momentous occasion so we can discuss it, below!

Alright. I wasn't expecting to see Jerry O'Connell in quite such a vibrant position today, but now that I have, I'm not mad at it. Thanks, Rebecca!

To be honest, it's pretty hard to deny that Romijn and O'Connell must enjoy making each other laugh. Can you imagine your partner doing something like this, letting you take a photo during and then also being totes cool with you posting it online? I can't help but wonder how many times it took for her to get a clear shot, because I can certainly see her laughing just enough that it would be hard to keep that camera steady.

There are several things to love about this silly shot from the two, who are now both a part of the Star Trek franchise, with Rebecca Romijin working on the upcoming Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Jerry O'Connell lending his voice to Star Trek: Lower Decks. First of all, check out that look of determination on O'Connell's face. He's quite sure of himself, despite the flip flops and barely there, (possibly) tie-dye print Speedo. But, I'm also enjoying the fact that their dogs don't look nearly as impressed with him as Romijn must be. In fact, they seem kinda bored, which tells me that this has probably happened more than once, and the poodle duo is over it.

What I may love most about the photo, though, is how Rebecca Romijn was sure to include a thoughtful and sweet birthday message for Jerry O'Connell, noting how she thanks him "for doing all the heavy lifting." Awwww! Perfect, right?

Rebecca Romijn may begin filming on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds before too much longer, while Jerry O'Connell is set to return for Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 2, which might debut sometime in 2021.
