Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband, Matthew Broderick, welcomed twin girls into their family, Barbara Walters reported on "The View" Tuesday (June 23). In late April, a rep confirmed that the couple, who have been married for 12 years, were expecting twins via a surrogate mother.
After unsuccessful attempts to become pregnant again after giving birth to their son, James, the couple turned to the surrogate and were completely "overjoyed" once they received the news that they were expecting twin girls. "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 a few months back. "They had a lot of unsuccessful tries," a friend told Entertainment Weekly, who first broke the news of the couple's latest addition to their family. "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."
"The View" reported that Broderick, 47, and Parker, 44, are at the East Ohio Regional Hospital in Martins Ferry with the surrogate mother. However, according to WTRF in Ohio, which first reported the story, the baby girls were born Monday night. Details are expected to be released later.
Parker is indeed about to get a lot busier. Along with the birth of her twin daughters, she's got another baby on her hands — the "Sex and the City" sequel, due in theaters in May 2010.
