Sarah Jessica Parker‘s son James Wilkie knows what he wants. So when his parents brought home twin girls born via surrogate six months ago, he was determined that one of them would be called Marion, the Did You Hear About the Morgans star says.

“Marion is this name that James Wilkie chose for whatever reason. The rest of us call her Loretta,” SJP tells the Daily Beast of her seven-year-old son.

“She’s Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick. And Tabitha is an old family name of mine from the 1600s.

“It never occurred to me that it was the name of a little witch [from Bewitched] until a friend mentioned it. But James Wilkie was very adamant about one of them being named Marion.

“He said, ‘You put that name on the birth certificate. Don’t you just humor me.’ But I really wanted a Loretta. I’m not sure why. I was longing for a little Loretta in my life.”

With three children and counting the Broderick brood may still be getting bigger!

Matthew [Broderick] and I were looking at a variety of ways to expand our family,” Sarah Jessica says. “And I wouldn’t say that we are done either. We will keep exploring different ways to have a family I think.”
