'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed she felt as though ''time stood still'' when she was introduced to her baby daughters for the first time
Sarah Jessica Parker felt "time stand still" when she met her twin daughters.
The 'Sex and the City' actress - who had daughters Marion Loretta and Tabitha Hodge through a surrogate with her husband Matthew Broderick last June - was overwhelmed when she was first introduced to her new babies and can only remember looking at her spouse and their seven-year-old son James Wilkie.
She said: "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."
The 45-year-old actress is currently preparing for the release of the 'Sex and the City 2' movie.
In the TV series and big screen adaptations, Sarah Jessica portrays writer Carrie Bradshaw - who is known for her exquisite fashion sense.
Despite this, the actress is adamant she is not high maintenance like her alter-ego.
She said: "We painted our patio furniture ourselves... I make my children's food myself. We put together their high chairs ourselves; we do a lot ourselves! We do our own grocery shopping, we go to the market ourselves, you know? I do my laundry."
Sarah Jessica has also dispelled rumours the film's leading ladies - also consisting Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon - fell out on set, and described working with them as "wonderful".
She said: "We four women, despite I guess what a lot of people hope, have never been better.
"This movie - and maybe it's because we actually lived together - it was the best! We were together all day long, at night, in the restaurants, in our hotels. It was wonderful."
