that the couple were adding to their family by having twin daughters with the help of a surrogate mother
. Broderick, 47, and Parker, 44, have a son, James Wilkie, 6.
"The entire family is overjoyed," the couple said in a statement at the time.
By May, the big brother was "pretty excited" – and already making a shopping list, according to his father
. "He said, 'We have to get a lot of princess toys.' "
Once the pregnancy was announced, friends of the couple
said that while the news came as a surprise, it was, in a way, also expected. "They love kids and wanted more," said one friend. "They absolutely love being parents."
Added another close pal: "They are very happy. They've wanted to become parents again for a while."
Parker's Sex and the City
costar Mario Cantone told PEOPLE
that having daughters was always a dream for Parker, who is known as one of Hollywood's most fashion-savvy stars. "She has definitely wanted to have a girl. She's going to have so much fun bringing the two girls up and teaching them to be young ladies."
Parker has described the surrogate
as a strong woman who made "an incredibly generous and gracious choice." Added Parker, "She's made a really big choice to be part of our lives and I think she's an honorable person."
