On Wednesday, she shared a photo of her husband, Jerry O’Connell’s dad Michael O’Connell, standing next to a promo poster of Romijn while in a subway station in Manhattan.
‘This is my adorable father-in-law. He stood here in the NY subway for 3hrs and told everyone who passed, that his daughter-in-law, Number One, serves on the Enterprise @startrekonpplus #strangenewworlds,’ she wrote in the caption.
