In an interview with ABC’s new Nightline correspondent Katie Couric, SJP opens up about her new movie ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It,’ and how it relates to her own life as a working NYC mom!
We couldn’t believe our ears, but it’s true — Sarah Jessica Parker is in fact a lover of the iconic mommy car, the minivan! In a new interview with Nightline, mom-of-three SJP tells Katie Couric to “respect the van” — it’s a mom’s dream come true! Do you agree?
“I sing along all day long as I’m dropping my kids off, driving my mini-van,” the I Don’t Know How She Does It star, 46, tells a shocked Katie Couric, who replies with a “Do you drive a minivan? Seriously.” “Yes,” SJP boasts, “Respect the van.”
“My mother is a huge Honda [Odyssey] fan… so I called up Bronx Honda, because my mother told me to, and we got ourselves a minivan,”she admits. “I’m telling you, it’s the most wonderful car.”
The most wonderful car for the most wonderful kids! SJP’s darling two-year-old twins with hubby Matthew Broderick, Tabitha and Marion “Loretta” and 8-year-old son James Wilke deserve only the best — and they got it when they found out Carrie Bradshaw, whoops, Sarah Jessica was their mommy!
“What I’ve learned about being a parent is how much you sort of secretly learn from everyone else and how valuable it is,” SJP confesses. “Sometimes it feels that you can barely breathe or think or make good decisions because you’re so overwhelmed by all of it. But I must confess that I can’t imagine it, generally speaking, any other way.”
“There’s this philosophical disagreement about being a mother and what that means and what kind of presence you have to have in a child’s life,” she adds. “We’re all slightly envious of the other all the time. If I’m running to work and maybe there’s parents there who aren’t and they’re getting to spend 20 to 30 minutes after drop-off together talking – there’s a part of me that wishes I could be there.”
This interview just proves how devoted SJP is to her children, her husband and her career. She truly is a miracle mommy and we “don’t know how she does it!” Don’t you agree?
