Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are now the proud parents of twin girls, giving their 6-year-old son a pair of precious playmates.

The surrogate mother gave birth to the girls in an Ohio hospital, and the family couldn’t be happier.

“The babies are doing beautifully, and the entire family is over the moon,” the couple’s representatives said in a statement.

Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick, weighing 5-pounds 11-ounces, and Tabitha Hodge Broderick, weighing 6 pounds, were born at 3:58 p.m. Monday. Both Hodge and Elwell are family names on Parker’s side.Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, were with the girls and the surrogate at East Ohio Regional Hospital in Martins Ferry, Ohio, local CBS affiliate WTRF reported.

The hospital did not release information on the condition of the surrogate, or any other information.

The couple’s reps did not elaborate on when the family would be back in New York or if their son James Wilkie was in Ohio to meet his sisters.

The joyous news follows reports last week of a police-orchestrated break-in of the surrogate mother’s former home in search of dirt for a tabloid magazine.

The couple announced they were expecting with the help of a surrogate in April, saying they could not conceive after their son was born.

Meanwhile, the couple’s friends were gushing with best wishes.

"I'm thrilled for Sarah, Matthew and James Wilkie," Parker’s Sex and the City costar Kim Cattrall told People.com. "More 'fabulous girls' are joining our SATC family."
