Sarah Jessica Parker: Motherhood Is “Perfectly Overwhelming”

Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker, who has been a mother since 2002 and recently welcomed twins into the family, is riding the parenthood high these days.

“It’s the most perfectly overwhelming experience,” the 44-year-old actress told PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of her newest flick, Did You Hear About the Morgans?, at the Ziegfeld Theater last night (December 14).

She goes on to say that though things are busy at home, her 7-year-old son, James Wilkie, and her 6-month-old twins, Marion and Tabitha “get along beautifully”.

In her latest film, Sarah plays a character who is relocated to Wyoming as part of a remote witness protection program. When asked what items she would bring along if she ever found herself in such a situation, she quickly answered: “My three children. That’s what I would somehow manage to sneak on the plane or the bus or the train or the horse and buggy. No matter what. I’d like my husband to be there as well,” she adds, speaking of actor Matthew Boderick.

Sadly, her colleague, Hugh Grant, isn’t quite as enamored with children as Sarah seems to be. He recently joked about the similarities between working with children and animals: “Animals aren’t easy, but what’s annoying about children is that everyone loves them and I resent that. I only work with ugly children.”
