Sarah Jessica Parker is an actress known for her obsession with privacy, so it's rare to read an interview where she openly speaks about her growing family of three small children. SJP told Vogue that her eldest child James is keen to tread the boards at the tender age of eight. She also spoke about her newest recruits, twins Tabitha and Loretta. SJP is married to 'Ferris Bueller' actor Matthew Broderick, and she admitted that raising children while trying to maintain a high profile career is tricky.
SJP told Vogue, 'I don't want him to do it until after he goes to college. But part of me thinks maybe it's better if he knows the truth now about how hard it is to be a working actor. I don't know if he grasps what it took to get us here. We've had two occasions recently where both Matthew and I were working and it was so hard on the kids. On the other hand, there are big chunks of time when we're home a lot more than conventionally working parents. So you hope to make up for it. We love closing the door and having the only people in the house be our three children and us. It's such a good feeling to know that we're competent and capable and that it's private.'
Parker also discussed her new offspring, admitting that the young Carries in training have very personalities, despite being twins. SJP said, 'They're talking, they're running, they need me. Loretta is deeply inquisitive, do you see that, do you hear that, Mama?' She constantly checks that we're connecting with her, [whereas] Tabitha does not give; she receives.'
