Sarah Jessica Parker: Twins Look More Like Matthew Broderick Than Me! (PHOTOS)
Sarah Jessica Parker has a lot to balance in her life from being a doting wife, mother and actress. So how does she do it? In Vogue's August issue, SJP candidly opens up about her family life and what it's like raising two young twins (born via surrogate) at age 46.
Although she and husband Matthew Broderick have a nanny for twins Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, they refuse to miss a moment when it comes to raising them and eight-year-old son, James Wilkie.
“We don’t have any live-in help. We’re pretty hands-on parents. That’s something that’s important to both of us, and we don’t shirk it, because what’s the point in having a family if you’re not going to really participate in it, you know?”
In the article, Sarah claims being an "older" parent has made her wiser, and she isn't complaining about those sleepless nights that come from caring for two young babies. So which parent are the twins looking more like today? She says:
“Tabitha’s very, very outgoing, but physically she’s very shy. She shakes in elevators; it’s very sweet, like Bambi. And then Loretta is pale, like my husband, with piercing blue eyes. But she’s physically bold... I think it’s funny how much she looks like my husband. Except then I look at Loretta and she has my husband’s mouth and sort of sad eyes, you know the kind that go down? The Broderick eyes. They both really look like him.”And when it comes to her career, Sarah knows she'll never be able to outlive Sex & The City. She's just glad she had the opportunity to portray Carrie Bradshaw before her family life took over.
“Bradshaw’s life is nothing—nothing—like mine. I loved playing her, and it changed my life in lots of wonderful ways, but I’m not a crazy shoe lady, I don’t think about fashion all day long, although I have a great respect for the industry... I ultimately chose to stop doing the television series because I felt like it required, and deserved, a lot of time when I really wanted to be a parent."
