Sarah Jessica Parker was born on March 25, 1965, in Nelsonville, Ohio, in the US. Her mother’s name was Barbara Parker and she was a nursery school operator. Her father’s name was Stephen Parker and he worked as a journalist. Her parents divorced when she was very young and she was raised by her mother and stepfather.
Her mother later remarried Paul Forste and had four more children, bringing the total to eight. Now she had 3 full siblings and 4 half-siblings.
Her father was of Eastern European Jewish ancestry, and her mother had German, and some English, roots. She contributed to the family income through her dancing and singing gigs. With support from her family, she eventually won her first Broadway role in ‘The Innocents’.
They then moved to New Jersey, where she studied at the Dwight Morrow High School. Later, she attended the School of American Ballet in New York City, the New York Professional Children’s School, the School for Creative and Performing Arts, and finally the Hollywood High School in Los Angeles.
Attending high-profile affairs with Robert Downey Jr. and John F. Kennedy Jr., Parker married Broderick in 1997. Their son, James Wilke Broderick, named after Matthew’s late father, was born in October 2002. In 2009, the couple received twin daughters, Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, via surrogate.

Sarah received a pay raise prior to the fourth season in 2001 that also gave her a producer credit. Between acting and producing fees, her salary per episode for seasons 4, 5, and 6 was $3 million. That means she received approximately $138 million over those 46 episodes (before taxes).
She brought in $13 million for the first S*x and the City movie and around $15 million for the second film. In total, Sara received approximately $200 million from the HBO series.
In March 2011, Sarah and Matthew invested $18.995 million in a townhouse in New York City. They continued to spend millions repairing the property. It was listed for sale for $24.99 million in 2012.
Regrettably, it could not find a buyer at that level and ultimately sell for $18.25 million which displayed a multi-million loss after restoration costs. In 2016 Sarah and Matthew invested a whopping $34.5 million on two side–by-side NYC townhouses.
Their new associated mansion has 14,000 square feet of living space, 2,100 square feet of outdoor space, and 50 feet of the street frontal. They also own a West Village townhome which was shopped in 2000 for $3 million and two moderate homes in the Hamptons neighborhood of Amagansett which were purchased in 2006 for a total of $6.6 million.

- In the early 1990s, Parker made the challenging continuation from teen to adult characters, showing alongside Steve Martin in L.A. Story (1991), then earning both critical and cult credibility as Nicolas Cage’s fiancée in Honeymoon in Vegas (1992). She was also characterized as the wife of schlockmeister Ed Wood in Tim Burton’s celebrated 1994 film Ed Wood.
- The mid-1990s saw Parker in a handful of middle-of-the-road supporting roles, including Miami Rhapsody (1995), The First Wives Club, and Mars Attacks! (both released in 1996).
- In 1998, Parker landed the starring role of New York s*x columnist Carrie Bradshaw on the TV series S*x and the City.
- Parker won multiple Golden Globe awards for her work on the show in the early 2000s, earning her both steady employment and devotion from the fashion world. The series was made into an original film by the same name in 2008, and its success led to a sequel in 2010.
- On the small screen, Parker made several guest presences on the hit musical series Glee.
- In 2016, she served as the executive producer and starred in the comedy series Divorce. She received a Golden Globe nomination for her role as Frances Dufresne, an executive recruiter who is going through a divorce from her husband of 17 years, shown by Thomas Haden Church.

- More than 20 years later, Parker and Broderick signed on to play three different couples in Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite, though audiences were imposed to wait to see the lovebirds in action after the coronavirus shuttered Broadway productions in early 2020.
