The pair's twin girls, who were conceived through a surrogate mother, have been born on Monday, June 22 and are said to be "doing beautifully".
A representative for Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick confirms that the celebrity pair has welcomed the arrival of their twin baby girls, who were conceived through a surrogate mother. "Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are delighted to announce the healthy arrival of their two daughters at 3:58 P.M. on June 22 in Ohio," the representative says in a statement.
"Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick weighed 5 lbs., 11 oz., and Tabitha Hodge Broderick weighed 6 pounds," continues the representative. "Both Hodge and Elwell are family names on Parker's side." The representative also confirms further, "The babies are doing beautifully and the entire family is over the moon."
Back in late April this year, Star Magazine ran an exclusive story that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were expecting twin babies with the help of a surrogate mother. Soon thereafter, both film stars had their representative confirming that they were expecting twin girls in summer and the family was overjoyed with the forthcoming addition to the family.
Despite the confirmation, both Sarah and Matthew remained silent on the identity of the woman who carried their twins. But, according to Star the surrogate mother's name is Michelle Ross and she is 26 years old.
In addition to the newborn twin baby girls, Sarah and Matthew have a 6-year-old son named James Wilke Broderick. The pair has been married since May 1997.
