Sarah Jessica Parker is back home in New York following a few weeks in Boston performing at the Emerson Colonial Theatre in her show, Plaza Suite. The Sex and the City actress has been recovering from the flu since Friday, where she felt so ill that she had to pull out of one of the final performances in the city. The Hollywood star is still feeling under the weather, but is glad to be back home in New York, where her daughter Marion, ten, is looking after her. The mother-of-three took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a glimpse inside her bedroom where she was resting. In the snapshot, Sarah's bed was in view, which had a floral duvet cover on it and a thick white blanket. Marion had sweetly given her mum her toy elephant to keep her company too.

In the caption of the photo, Sarah wrote: "Still recovering. Two steps forward and you know. Surrounded by borrowed crystals, Loretta's [Marion's] elephant Phillip and more fluids than I can ever surely consume." Fans were quick to wish Sarah a speedy recovery, with one writing: "Feel better soon! Sending healing vibes your way," while another wrote: "Feel better! Not easy when mummy gets sick." A third added: "Love the bedding and the elephant!"

Sarah and her husband Matthew Broderick received a warm welcome home from their children earlier in the week, and were pleased to be back to normality. As well as Marion, the celebrity couple are also parents to Tabitha, Marion's twin, and son James Wilkie, 17. The family will be able to spend quality time together before Plaza Suite kicks off on Broadway in a few weeks.

The family have lived in New York for many years, and Sarah has previously revealed she would never leave, at least "not voluntarily," during an interview with Vogue. The Here and Now actress recently opened up about how she keeps her children grounded, despite their parents being in the public eye. Appearing on Australia's KIIS FM, the star said: "Parents who aren't well known can have children who aren't grounded because of the example they set in their home."

She went on to explain that since she grew up with not a lot of money, she vowed that after finding fame she would only give her family what they need, rather than what they want. She said she tells her children: "I will do my best to make sure you always have what you need, but I want you pining towards something. I want you to work for something, to dream of it, to will it to happen."
