Sarah Jessica Parker has shared a rare insight into her family life, posting a picture of her eldest son James on Instagram.

The 18-year-old, who graduates high school this summer, was pictured heading off for his senior year field day, a celebration held in American schools to honor the year coming to an end and to show school pride.

"Into the sunset of his High School career. Field day. The period at the end of a long sentence. And all the sunrises and sunsets in his future," posted the Sex and the City star.

Sarah shared a sweet tribute to her son

She signed off with the word "mama".

Sarah is married to actor Matthew Broderick, and the pair are also parents to 11-year-old twin daughters Marion and Tabitha who were born via surrogacy.

The two have always chosen to keep their children out of the spotlight, but in early April the 56-year-old took to Instagram to reveal insight into family life with the twins.
