Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, delighted fans with a rare glimpse into their family life over the Thanksgiving holiday.

 The "Sex and the City" actress and her actor husband were captured in a charming family photo, radiating happiness alongside their three children.

The heartwarming snapshot was shared on Instagram by their 21-year-old son, James, who captioned it "Cheers, California." 

In the intimate selfie, James is seen cozily holding the phone while nestled in bed next to his mother, Sarah, aged 58, and his 14-year-old twin sisters, Marion and Tabitha.

One user expressed the sentiment of many, highlighting the joy of a mother having all her children together, while another described the image as "so great."

Sarah and Matthew, a celebrated couple in Hollywood, have been married since May 1997. Their family began with the birth of James in 2002, followed by the arrival of Marion and Tabitha via surrogate in 2009.
