This Boy Is the Son of a ‘Sex and the City’ Actress Who Married Her Beloved Man in a Black Dress 26 Years Ago

This boy’s parents are award-winning Hollywood stars.
He is the eldest child of three kids and has twin sisters.
This boy’s mother wore a black dress on her wedding day. His parents have been married for nearly three decades.

This young man was born to famous parents and was named after his late paternal grandfather. Now all grown up, he has two younger twin sisters, and his mom and dad have been married for nearly three decades.

This boy was born on October 28, 2002, at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, weighing 6 lbs. 8 oz. Following his birth, his well-known parents stood outside the hospital and introduced him to the world.

The Hollywood couple reportedly posed for about 100 photographers and fans while waiting outside the hospital. The new mom famously said to them, “Thanks for caring. It must be a slow news week.”

The boy’s parents named him after his dad’s father, who starred in the 1970s television show, “Family,” “Alice’s Restaurant” and “Dog Day Afternoon.” The grandparent sadly died in the early 1980’s.

The boy is the first child of the couple, who has discussed starting a family since they tied the knot. The mom believes her son is more like her. In an August 2011 interview, she revealed this about her then-8-year-old boy:

“He has neuroses that I can see are mine. This need to strive for perfection—I have some control over that because I’m a grown-up and have perspective, but he’s still really frustrated when he can’t do something spot-on.”

However, there is one thing the boy does not have in common with his beloved mother, and that is boldness. The loving parent shared she was “not outgoing” back in the day.

Who Is the Boy Born to Famous Parents?
The boy whose mother is a “Sex and the City” star is James Broderick. He is the son of actress Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick.

When James was eight years old, his mother revealed that he had already expressed interest in acting, but she and his dad preferred that he join the industry after graduating from college.

James is now 21 years old and is a college student. In June 2023, he honored his beloved dad at the Father of the Year Awards in New York City.

The father and son duo walked the red carpet together at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel. At the time, James was on a summer break from college and divulged during an interview that he had “tried” out acting for a short while and “liked it.”

But he also noted that things could pan out differently for him, explaining that he could end up doing something else with his life. Meanwhile, his father Matthew revealed the advice he had given him, which is to pursue acting if he really loves it, adding, “If you don’t like it, don’t go crazy sticking to it.”

Matthew spoke candidly about fatherhood in an interview ahead of the 81st Father of the Year Awards, where his son James presented him with the special honor.

The award-winning actor said of all the things that he has done, being a father “is my favorite.” Matthew added he is glad he became one when he least expected it.

In October 2022, his wife paid a birthday tribute to their son on Instagram. Sarah posted throwback photos of the duo’s eldest child from childhood and captioned her post:

“[…] Happy birthday, my son. I love you so. Xxx, Mama.”

Get To Know James’ Parents
Sarah and Matthew dated for five years and made things official when they tied the knot in May 1997, only five years before their son James was born.

The Hollywood couple walked down the aisle with 100 guests, who initially believed they were attending a party, only to learn it was a wedding. The bride donned a black dress for the auspicious occasion.

In an interview in September 2006, 56-year-old Sarah, who starred alongside Kim Cattrall, among others, in “Sex and the City,” reflected on her choice of wearing a black dress at the couple’s wedding. The blonde beauty admitted:

“I wore black on my wedding day, and I really regret that. I was too embarrassed to get married in white, and both Matthew and I were reluctant to have people pay so much attention to us.”

The two-time Emmy Award winner also admitted that it was absurd to think like that because it was the perfect time to “relish the attention,” adding:

“We treated it like it was a big party on a Monday night, and I regret it.”

Asked in a February 2018 interview whether she knew that her husband was the one, Sarah revealed she had “never thought about” a wedding gown, let alone dream of it.

The television star further explained that she only remembered hoping Matthew, who bagged a Tony Award at a young age in 1983 for his role in a play called, “Brighton Beach Memoirs,” would eventually propose to her. This was early on in the lovebirds’ relationship.

Sarah and Matthew, who are also parents to 14-year-old twin daughters Marion and Tabitha, whom they welcomed in June 2009, have been married for over two decades.

In May 2023, the film producer commemorated the duo’s wedding anniversary on Instagram. “Happy 26th anniversary, my husband,” the New York native captioned her post.

Sarah mentioned that she and her beloved husband Matthew had a wonderful celebration, adding that they had a “real nice bottle of champagne” and a “gorgeous walk home” after strolling for miles. She expressed love for her spouse and signed off with “XOX, your SJ.”

Sarah was once asked about the couple’s secret to a happy marriage, and the mother of two acknowledged that she and the father of her kids are constantly evolving. Their relationship has shifted so much, so she still learns something new about him daily. Most importantly, it’s a bonus for her that she still likes him.
