“Meeting your children rather than giving birth to them, it’s as if, um, it’s—suspended animation. The gestational experience is gone. It’s as if everything else disappears for a moment, and the world goes silent and—I can’t explain it except to say that nothing else existed. I don’t remember anything but the blanket on the bed that they were lying on and my husband’s face and their faces and my son’s. It’s literally as if sound is sucked from the room. Time stands still. It’s so different, and equally extraordinary. I am very poor at describing it. But it’s amazing.” – Sarah Jessica Parker on meeting the twins for the first time

    I think Marion actually goes by the name Loretta. They only gave her the first name of Marion because that is what James Wilkie wanted to call her. He is the only one that still calls her Marion.

    Happy First Birthday little ones! You two are so beautiful!!!

    Yup Sara is right, SJP said she picked the name Loretta but James insisted on Marion being “in the mix” and he wanted it “legal on the birth certificate.” He calls her Marion but no one else does in the family.

    I think it’s weird that they let their son decide and let him call her Marion whereas the rest of the family calls her Loretta. They could have simply agreed on calling her Marion, what’s wrong with the name? I mean, if you let your kid have a say in what to call your baby, then let him have a say.

    Yeah real “weird” So they call her by her middle names, her name was supposed to be Loretta originally because SJP wanted it and James wanted Marion to be her name. So clearly they compromised, her first name is Marion and they call her by her middle name Loretta and let James call her Marion because it’s special and he picked it so of course he wants to call her that.
