Guess it makes a change from the never ending blurb we have to put up with when the likes of Angelina Jolie or Jessica Alba spend a whole nine months revealing every twinge and bout of morning sickness that comes their way during their pregnancies, but at the same time, its really absurd to know that Sex and the City star, Sarah Jessica Parker has now become the mother of twins. And all within the past few hours!

It was only a few weeks ago that Sarah, and husband, Matthew Broderick seemed to be going through the ‘death role’ with their marriage and now the couple have brought twin girls into the Parker-Broderick household, compliments of a surrogate mother.

The newly born twin girls, named Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick and Tabitha Hodge Broderick, were said to be ‘doing beautifully’, according to the couple’s publicist.

Apparently, the reason given for the New York based couple resorting to a surrogate was due to the problems they had experienced in their attempts at conceiving another child since the birth of their natural son, James Wilkie Broderick in 2003.

The surrogate mother was originally intended to remain anonymous, but back in April the ex husband of the woman, Michelle Ross, came forward to reveal the juicy piece of scandal, no doubt in a bid to increase the base line on his bank account.

Last month, Sarah, now 44, told Access Hollywood that media attention surrounding the pregnancy had led to an invasion of the surrogate mother’s privacy. Parker, speaking about her decision to use the surrogate also told Access Hollywood: ‘Well, you know, we’ve been trying to expand our family for a number of years and we actually have explored a variety of ways of doing so.’

Maybe the fact that Matthew, after an 11 year marriage to SJP, had a well reported dalliance with a 25 year old youth worker back in 2007, didn’t exactly inspire a convivial relationship suited to producing more babies!!!

At the time Broderick’s rep, Simon Hall, didn’t actually deny the lurid allegations, instead he told Star magazine he had ‘no comment’, although, while parker was on location making the SATC movie, Broderick met the 25-year-old unnamed woman in a Manhattan bar in  November 07 and was apparently seen walking towards the woman’s apartment carrying wine and flowers. It is alleged he was subsequently seen making late-night visits to see her over the following month.
