When Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick — already parents to 7-year-old James Wilkie — set out to expand their family, they got their wish and then some!
“We didn’t want twins but we wanted a bigger family and this is what we got,” says the mom to twins Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, 6 months. “It’s a blessing, it’s a thrill, it’s a privilege but it couldn’t be more different.”
