She may be one of the most highly recognized celebrities in America, but celeb mom Sarah Jessica Parker has always seemed like a pretty normal, down to earth woman to me. She lives a quiet life in New York City with husband, Matthew Broderick, and their three kids, and tends to stay out of the spotlight.
Sarah is featured in this Sunday’s issue of Parade Magazine talking about being married to Matthew for 20 years, and about raising her kids in New York without the help of nannies.
On the subject of marriage, Parker said that Broderick has helped her appreciate “baseball, parmesan cheese, and color.” Apparently Matthew’s mom was a painter, and his love for using color inspired Sarah. She also added that Matthew has made her more cynical, which she insists is a good thing.
While most celebrity parents have at least one, if not two nannies living with them, Sarah and Matthew would rather raise their kids on their own. Sarah told Parade, “We love closing the door and having the only people in the house be our three children and us. It’s such a good feeling to know that we’re competent and capable and that it’s private.”
