Sarah Jessica Parker had special company on the red carpet this year. The actress's son flew in from college to walk the red carpet with his mother and father, Matthew Broderick, in New York. 

The three attended the premiere of the new HBO Max series "And Just Like That," a reboot of "Sex And The City," in style. Broderick and their son James Wilkie Broderick, 19, donned dapper black suits with coordinating pocket squares.

Parker and Broderick's children typically stay out of the limelight. James, however, appears in events with his parents once in a while. 

The last time he attended a red carpet even was in 2017, when at 14 years, he and his sisters joined their parents at the "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" opening on Broadway.

The youngster has since graduated from high school and left the nest to attend Brown University in Rhode Island. His proud mother shared a photo of him in his freshman attire as he headed off to college in September. 

The following month, the "Footloose" actress paid tribute to James on his 19th birthday on social media. But more than just growing up, James has developed an undeniable resemblance to his actress mother. His cheekbones are the spitting image of his mother's. 


Despite having a highly publicized career in film, the Hollywood couple has been surprisingly private about their marriage and family life.

Unlike with her character in "Sex And The City," Carrie Bradshaw's tumultuous love life, Parker's real-life romance with her husband has been smooth-sailing. 



James is not Parker and Broderick's only child. The couple, who has been married since the late '90s, have two more children. They also share twin daughters Marion and Tabitha, 12. The two are in 7th grade.

Parker mused over how she had her two daughters, saying that since she gave birth to her first baby at 37, it became difficult to carry another pregnancy, so they settled on having their babies through surrogacy. 

Despite not carrying her babies, Parker explained to Vogue that meeting her babies was "different" but "equally extraordinary." 

In September, the proud mother of three took to her Instagram to share beautiful and rarely-seen photos of her lovely kids, alongside a poem, reflecting on how fast time had flown.
