Clearly revelling in her new role as mum to three children, Sarah Jessica Parker has spoken of the first time she met surrogate twins, Marion Loretta and Tabitha Hodge.
"Meeting your children rather than giving birth to them, it's as if, um, it's - suspended animation," she says.
"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, who is currently preparing for the release of the Sex and the City 2 movie, welcomed the new twins last June.
