She'll soon be a mum of three – but SJP isn't toning down the fashion factor

The news has just landed that Sarah Jessica Parker is expecting twins through a surrogate – but don't for a minute think our favourite style icon will still be anything but fashion-fabulous!

The Sex and the City star looked breathtaking – not to mention totally edgy and directional – in her stunning wet-look dress, enhanced with beautiful bustline beading.

And, as ever, SJP would have made her alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw proud with those stunning, gold-accented, fierce strappy heels.

The star was enjoying some family time with hubby Matthew Broderick and 6-year-old son James Wilkie at the Patricia Broderick Painting and Works On Paper Exhibition at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in NY.

Despite her excitement at the impending birth of her twin daughters – she was spotted stocking up on all sort of goodies at children's toy store Just Kidding yesterday - SJP has expressed concern at having enough time for all her family as a working mum.

She told the New York Daily News: 'It's been a complicated past few weeks.

'My main concern is that my husband and son have enough time. I've felt very conflicted over the last few weeks.

'Hopefully, our son is feeling loved and taken care of. I can't really complain because it's my choice to work, but that doesn't mean I don't spend a better part of the day worrying about whether my family is getting enough [time] from me.'

She added: 'Any complications or any anxiety I feel is normal. Any mother who wants to continue to work and have a career outside the home goes through this, so I feel very much a part of the sisterhood.'

It is thought the couple turned to a surrogate after having trouble conceiving.

Star magazine claims the babies were conceived in vitro using eggs SJP had frozen some time ago and Broderick's sperm.

The publication also says the woman, a 26-year-old divorced mother-of-one, is reportedly receiving $30,000 (£20,300) to carry the twin girls for the A-list couple.

According to the magazine, the couple will also cover her medical costs of around $20,000 (£13,500) and pay $100,000 (£67,700) to surrogate agency Growing Generations, based in Los Angeles.

The woman is reportedly due to give birth on 18 July.
