Over 20 Years' Worth of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's Big City Love

December 1996

Sarah Jessica Parker may be best known for her role as perennial city girl Carrie Bradshaw, but there's something else in her life that has stood the test of time: her marriage to fellow actor Matthew Broderick. Their love story reads like a Woody Allen movie: Parker and Broderick met in 1991 after being introduced at a theater company by one of Parker's brothers. They tied the knot in 1997 with a civil ceremony on Manhattan's Lower East Side — she famously wore a black wedding gown! — and have since become parents to son James Wilkie and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta.

In May 2023, Parker shared a tribute to Broderick for their 26th anniversary on her Instagram. Alongside a photo of a champagne cork, she wrote, "Happy 26th anniversary my husband. That sure was a nice celebration and a real nice bottle of champagne. And a gorgeous walk home. Oh the miles we have strolled together. I love you. XOX, your SJ."

They're not just one of Hollywood's longest-running celebrity couples, though — Broderick and Parker are also widely recognized as famous figures in the Big Apple. They champion important causes like arts education and music programs, and support the NYC Ballet and UNICEF. They can always be counted on to show up in style for high-profile events on Broadway, glitzy industry galas, and various red carpet ceremonies.
