Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick said Tuesday they were "delighted to announce the healthy arrival of their two daughters" – twins born Monday afternoon in Ohio via a surrogate.

"The babies are doing beautifully and the entire family is over the moon," the couple say in a statement confirming earlier reports.

Born at 3:58 p.m., Marion Loretta Elwell weighed 5 lbs., 11 oz, and Tabitha Hodge Broderick weighed 6 lbs. "Both Hodge and Elwell are family names on Parker's side," the statement explains.

The news first broke in April 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.
