Two police chiefs are under investigation for allegedly planning a break-in at the home of the woman carrying the twins of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. According to news outlets in Ohio, the state's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation is looking into whether officers from the neighboring towns of Martins Ferry and Bridgeport masterminded a burglary in order to gather information that they could then sell to a tabloid newspaper.
"I'm 100 percent innocent in this and my department is as well," Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter told TV station WTOV in Steubenville. Both Carpenter and the other officer reportedly under investigation, Bridgeport Police Chief Chad Dojack, remain on the job as the probe continues.

While Sarah Jessica Parker is worried about the safety of a surrogate mom carrying her twins, the actress says husband Matthew Broderick is reacting in a different way to the intense media attention and threats.
"He’s furious. He’s angry," the actress, 44, tells Access Hollywood.
The couple are also worried about how this is all affecting their son, James Wilkie.
"As a parent, it's so interesting how differently you function when you have a child," Parker says. "I have a responsibility to somebody far more important than myself. I look at his face and I think he can't, he doesn't need to know about this."
"He doesn't need to know what's upsetting me right now," adds the actress. "It does him no good. He can't help me. He will only worry."

Sarah Jessica Parker says the surrogate mom carrying the actress's twins is a strong woman who made "an incredibly generous and gracious choice."
But Parker now worries that this strength is being put to too much of a test from the media attention following the announcement the Sex and the City star and husband Matthew Broderick are expecting twin girls.
"On a daily basis, on an hourly basis, I am greatly concerned for her health and safety and the safe delivery of our children," Parker, 44, tells Access Hollywood in an interview airing Tuesday.

Matthew Broderick, who is expecting twin daughters with wife Sarah Jessica Parker, insists, "Yeah, I'm ready" – well, almost.
"Oh man, I'm nervous just even thinking about it," the actor, 47, said Friday on the Late Show with David Letterman, in his first interview since he and Parker, 44, announced they are having twins via a surrogate.
"You know, I've asked people, 'What's it like to have twins?'" Broderick tells Letterman. "One father said, 'I don't recommend it,' but the rest have been very positive."
As for the couple's 6-year-old son James Wilkie, "He's pretty excited" – and already making a shopping list, according to Broderick. "He said, 'We have to get a lot of princess toys.' "

Expanding their brood, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick announced this week they are welcoming twin girls via a surrogate.
By not revealing any details about why they chose a surrogate, Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, have left many of their well-wishing fans with questions.
For example, what is a surrogate? They are women, often with children of their own, who offer to carry the babies of couples who experience infertility. The most common variety, known as a gestational carrier, carries an embryo provided by the couple, and has no genetic relationship to the child in question (the womb-for-rent scenario). Other surrogates use sperm provided by the couple, but their own eggs.

The night before the news broke that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are expecting twin girls via surrogate, Parker certainly looked like a mom-to-be: She was glowing and forgoing those famous Sex and the City cosmopolitans.
"She was in such a great mood, so sweet to everyone and so happy," says a guest who attended the party at 675 Bar for Broderick's film, Wonderful World, at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday night. "They were tucked into a corner throughout the night. He drank martinis and she drank water. They were really loving and adoring. She did look beautiful."
According to friends, the actress has been ready for more children for a long time. "They've always wanted to become parents again," says a source who has known the couple for years. "They realized after the first or second year after [son James Wilkie] was born that it would be nice to have another baby."
