Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick Welcome Twin Daughters Marion and Tabitha
The latest additions to the Parker-Broderick family have arrived! Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick‘s surrogate delivered twin girls — Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick and Tabitha Hodge Broderick — at 3:58 p.m. on Monday, June 22nd in Ohio. Marion weighed in at 5 lbs., 11 oz, while Tabitha was 6 lbs.
Both Hodge and Elwell are family names on Sarah Jessica’s side. “The babies are doing beautifully and the entire family is over the moon,” the couple said in a statement released this afternoon.
Marion and Tabitha, who were due in July, join big brother James Wilkie, 6 ½. Sarah Jessica, 44, and Matthew, 47, have been married 12 years.
The couple announced the pregnancy and sexes of the babies in April, but the news came at a price. Concerned for the safety of the surrogate carrying the babies, Sarah Jessica spoke out in May, imploring the public to respect the woman’s privacy. Still, the family remained excited, with Matthew telling David Letterman, “I’m nervous just even thinking about it, but it’s girls … two little girls.”
