Despite having just given birth to twins and being not quite back to her pre-baby body, actress Rebecca Romijn says she feels as sexy as ever.

In a new interview with InStyle magazine (which hits newsstands May 22), the former swimsuit model and “Ugly Betty” star says, “I’m a jeans size up from where I usually am, but there’s nothing about it that freaks me out. I’ve always said sexy is having a really strong sense of yourself and never taking yourself too seriously.”

Maybe her confidence is a result of the new mom is so proud of her daughters and her husband Jerry O’Connell.

“Being a mom makes me feel whole and like I understand the meaning of life,” she said. “All I want to do is stare into my babies’ eyes nonstop.”

And she’s ready to pass her style sense along to her daughters too.

“I know they’re going to have a lot to say by the time they turn 2, so until then I get to dress them however I want.”
