Surrogacy And Sex In The City
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are expecting twin girls with the help of a surrogate mother.
Despite nagging rumors that the couple is on the verge of divorce -- and of Matthew's indiscretions of an even more indelicate type than usual -- the couple is joining forces to produce their greatest work since son James Wilke was born: twin daughters!
But they are not doing it on their own. Instead, they have enlisted the help of a surrogate mother.The actors' publicist explains in a statement:
"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. The entire family is overjoyed."
Broderick, 47, and Parker, 44, are no spring chickens, which surely played the largest role in deciding to take the surrogate route. A source says the couple has been unsuccessfully trying to add to their family for a long time.
"At a certain point, they were presented with an alternative," the source says. "They could have kept trying on their own, but they've always wanted to have more children and felt this was the best way to go."
But don't worry, Sex and the City fans -- these two new little developments won't get in the way of the movie sequel. If all goes according to plan, filming will start this summer.
