Actress Rebecca Romijn has revealed that a strong dose of dance parties is the secret recipe behind her happiness

The mum-of-two is said to be already teaching her 3½-year-old twin daughters Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose the secret to happiness. “My mom used [to dance] as a tool to work herself out of a bad mood. I remember dancing around the house to We Are Family.”

“I’m introducing the girls to The Beatles and Stevie Wonder. We have a little disco ball in our living room, we love our little dance parties,” she said. But since her daughters were born, it has taken a whole lot more than fancy foot work to maintain her fabulous figure.  “After I had my babies and was struggling to lose the weight, I had to challenge my body in a different way. Bikram yoga was key,” the 39-year-old actress said.

“You sweat so much, you’ll lose poundage. Though, honestly? I dread it every time. [After] I’m grateful for it,” she said. And while she does occasionally indulge in her favorite foods, she admitted that she has had to cut back on drinking wine — even with her mom status at stake.

“I’d fall asleep for an hour and then be wide awake! Every once in a while, I’d toy with the idea of, ‘I can be a cool mom — a party girl at night and a mom in the morning,’” she said..  “But I’d regret it every time. Because those girls wake up at 6 a.m. no matter what time you come home!” she added.
