Sarah Jessica Parker is taking the route that many couples struggling with infertility have chosen by opting to expand her family through surrogacy.
The Sex and the City star is using a surrogate who is due to give birth to twin girls later this summer, a spokesperson for the star revealed today (April 30th).
Parker is now 44 and already has a six-year-old son with her actor husband Matthew Broderick to whom she has been married to for 12 years.
The twin girls are reported to have been conceived using Parker's own eggs, that she had frozen years earlier, and Broderick's sperm.
A surrogate was chosen by the couple through an agency and the couple are said to be "happily anticipating the birth of their twin daughters later this summer with the generous help of a surrogate".
Parker was previously in a relationship with the actor Robert Downey Junior from 1984 until 1991, and went on to marry Broderick in 1997.
