Sarah Jessica Parker Talks About Motherhood in Vogue

Sarah Jessica Parker Had Daughters to Lessen Son's Burden

The decision to add a sibling to the family is one that many parents make as soon as their first is born. While there are many reasons a sibling will benefit the first child in a family, 63 percent of LilSugar readers made the decision to grow their family based on their own desires.

In the May issue of Vogue, Sarah Jessica Parker discusses her use of a surrogate to bring twins Tabitha Hodge ("Babe") and Marion Loretta Elwell ("Kitty") into the Broderick family. During the interview, she says:

Parker had wanted her son to have siblings partly for his own delight but also because she and Broderick are older parents (her words), "and I didn't want him to have to shoulder the burden of us — later in life — by himself." They pursued both adoption and surrogacy, and it was the surrogacy option that came up first.

Why did you decide to give your child a sibling?

I fully understand what she is saying. I'm an only child and my father was constantly in the hospital, my parents are divorced so I am the sole person responsible to taking care of him when anything arises. From reading his mail, visiting him in the hospital - it's just too stressful at times. This hit a peak when my newborn was just 1 month old and he got admitted to the hospital and had to have surgery. Too much going on at the same time and if I had siblings I think it would have helped.
