Sarah Jessica Parker Celebrates 8,030 Days of Marriage with Throwback Photo
Sarah Jessica Parker posted a sweet photo from the ‘90s with her husband, Matthew Broderick, in celebration of their 22nd wedding anniversary -- a rarity in Hollywood.
Sarah Jessica Parker, 54, and Matthew Broderick, 57, celebrated their marriage on Sunday with a sweet throwback photo on the actresses Instagram account. “22 years, 8,030 days” and “a billion memories,” shared Parker on the post.
Their 90’s candid couple shot featured Parker in her signature curly blonde hair while Broderick wore round funk red glasses, both looking in different directions.
Moments after, Parkers nearly 5.5 million followers greeted the couple a happy anniversary as well. Celebrity friends such as Jennifer Garner and Kelly Ripa also commented their anniversary greetings on the post.
Days before the throwback photo was posted, Parker addressed an issue on her Instagram which involved a fabricated story by the National Enquirer about the couple having a heated argument which resulted to a public shouting in England.
“There was no ‘screaming match’ as alleged in a restaurant or on the street, nor was there a confrontation as alleged about his time in London,” Parker wrote. “My children and I are enormously proud of the work he is doing.”

Just like clockwork. Over a decade of the same untrue, disgraceful nonsense. As usual, days ahead of our anniversary on May 19th, The National Enquirer is making its annual best effort to fabricate and undermine, this time a blissful 4 days with my husband in London. There was no "screaming match" as alleged in a restaurant or on the street, nor was there a confrontation as alleged about his time in London. My children and I are enormously proud of the work he is doing. After much thought I have decided to share a typical letter of "inquiry" from these people. As if the truth, a response or any comments from me or my publicist had any bearing on what they threaten to "report" . Hey National Enquirer and your sister publications, why not celebrate a marriage of 22 years and relationship of 27 years? Because, despite your endless harassment and wasted ink, we are nearing 3 decades of love, commitment, respect, family and home. There's your "scoop" From a "reliable source". #tabloidharassment
Despite the efforts done by tabloids to create a fuss amid a happy marriage, Parker and Broderick still managed to happily celebrate their 22 years in love, which started on Broadway in 1991, after Parker ended a relationship with Robert Downey Jr.
A few months later, in 1992, Broderick asked her out through a message he left on her voicemail, which she gladly accepted. After five years of dating, the Hollywood couple tied the knot at the Angel Orensanz Synagogue on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
“I never thought about a wedding dress. Never. Had not one daydream about it,” Parker told People. “At one point I just simply remember thinking, ‘God, I really hope he asks me to marry him.’”
