[movieperson id="48614"]Sarah Jessica Parker[/movieperson] and [movieperson id="7697"]Matthew Broderick[/movieperson] are expecting twin girls with a surrogate mother, the couple has confirmed. Their due date is toward the end of the summer.
"Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are happily anticipating the birth of their twin daughters later this summer with the generous help of a surrogate," representatives for the couple said in a statement. "The entire family is overjoyed."
Entertainment Weekly first broke the story after a friend of the couple revealed that they had been trying for years to become pregnant again after the birth of their son, James Wilkie, who is now 6-years-old. Last year, Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, turned to a surrogate, whose name and place of residence have not been disclosed.
"They had a lot of unsuccessful tries," the friend told EW. "They came to the conclusion that this was going to be the best alternative for expanding their family. They're over the moon and excited as any prospective parents would be. Their life is about to get a lot busier."
Parker and Broderick will celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary next month.
Parker is currently at work on the Hugh Grant romantic comedy, "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" and is getting ready to film a follow-up this summer to the 2008 box-office smash, [movie id="355798"]"Sex and the City,"[/movie] for a May 2010 release. Broderick, whose new film, "Wonderful World" debuted on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival, is currently appearing on Broadway in a revival of "The Philanthropist."
