Sarah Jessica Parker Says She Didn't Want To Have Twins - But It's A Bit Late Now...

Sarah Jessica Parker has told how she "didn't want" to have twins.

The Sex and the City star says looking after her twin daughters Marion Loretta and Tabitha Hodge, who are six months old, is much tougher than she expected.

SJP and her husband Matthew Broderick had the twins through a surrogate mother.

She told website Popeater: "We didn't want twins but we wanted a bigger family and this is what we got.

"It's a blessing, it's a thrill, it's a privilege but it couldn't be more different."

She says leaving the house is a "military operation" - which will be a familiar story to any parent.

It's hard to feel TOO sorry for SJP when she's got so much cash and assistance at her disposal though, isn't it?

The actress told Popeater how hard it was to get out of the house with the children: "It's shocking," she said.

"The diapers, the ointment, the bottle, the pacifier, the baby blanket, plastic bags so you're not leaving a dirty diaper at someone's house or a restaurant, God forbid, wipes, baby Tylenol.

"The list goes on and you need it all, it's not a joke. Times two."

The celebrity couple also have a seven-year-old son, James Wilkie.

SJP has also recently said she fears she is a failure as a mother. She said: "We choose to be mothers, it's complicated. It's a balancing act and I'm sure I'm failing miserably."

However she told Popeater that she is managing to find the funny side of her difficulties.

She said: "Honestly it's funny. It's comedic. There is so much organisation and advance planning that happens."

Yeah. I expect the nannies are rushed off their feet...
