Sarah Jessica Parker
has always wanted a daughter, her Sex and the City
costar Mario Cantone tells PEOPLE. And in a few months, she will have not one – but two twin girls
– via surrogate
"I'm thrilled for her!" the comedian, 49, said at Thursday's DKMS Americas Bone Marrow Registry's Third Annual Linked Against Leukemia benefit, which he emceed at New York City's Cipriani 42nd Street. "She has definitely wanted to have a girl."
Perfect, considering Parker is "the ultimate girl," he says. "I mean, she's her. She's going to have so much fun bringing the two girls up and teaching them to be young ladies."
Cantone complimented Parker, 44, and her husband, Matthew Broderick, 47, on the great job they've done raising their son, James Wilkie, 6. "He's witty. He's funny and bright. The kid's sharp! They are great parents."
Cantone also says he's happy that James Wilkie will soon have some little sisters to pal around with. "It's good to have a combination of boys and girls."
