The Sex and the City star is a doting mum to three children

The actress shares James and 11-year-old twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha – all of whom have largely stayed out of the spotlight – with husband of 24 years, Matthew Broderick.

Opening up about raising her three children to People back in 2018, Sarah Jessica admitted just how in awe she was of her then 15-year-old son.

"Sometimes I just sit on the stairs because they're all in the kitchen, eating all the food, and I listen," she confessed. "And I'm so charmed by their conversation. I'm so happy with the young man he's becoming."
