According to Sarah Jessica Parker, "kids can really distract you from your relationship," as the 46-year-old mom of three told U.K. paper the Telegraph.
The actress is raising son James Wilkie, 8, and twins Tabitha and Loretta, 2, with husband Matthew Broderick. She adds, "Maybe in good ways and bad ways. It's important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship."
She and Broderick, who've been together for 20 years, have had the same relationship bumps as everyone else: "You have good days, you have decent days, and you have bad days. That's a marriage. That's a relationship. That's a friendship, even - relationships outside the marriage run the same course."
And the more offspring you have, the more challenging things get. "Going from one to three children is a much bigger adjustment than becoming a mother in the first place," SJP says. "One child in retrospect seems a cake walk compared to where I stand today."
She may have more resources than most, but in the end, Parker’s still a worried mom. "Children provide a whole new set of concerns," the actress adds. "Who knows what I'll be insecure about next week?"
