Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have been married for 23 years and it seems as if the love has not faded one but,
When appearing on Bruce Springsteen’s SiriusXM show Quarantined With Bruce on Friday, the 58-year-old Broderick could not help but gush over his wife.
Calling the 55-year-old Sex & The City star his ‘best friend,’ the Ferris Bueller actor praised Sarah and the life they have created after all these years.

Despite the fact that he ‘can’t believe’ the duo have been together for as long as they have, Broderick had nothing but illustrious remarks to share.
‘I don’t know the secret [to marriage] at all, but I’m very grateful and I love her and, it’s amazing,’ he said.
He continued to praise the Divorce star for her incredible acting abilities, being reminded of his wife’s tremendous talent when they jointly starred in the Broadway play Plaza Suite.
‘Even though we only just did it in Boston for a little while, Plaza Suite, you know, she was so, so good in it,’ he said, referring to the fact that the play was shut down indefinitely in March due to the pandemic.

Acting opposite his wife for the first time, Broderick said that he was ‘reminded of how funny and smart and what a great actor she is.
‘I had never acted with her onstage and had never really acted with her at all. But, she just, she’s very good at it. So, I hope everybody gets to see her do it [the play].’
Echoing Broderick’s sentiments in an interview with Us Weekly last year, Parker said that the key to their strong marriage has to do with keeping their business ‘nice and private.’
‘We have a family, we have children, we have friends that have passed away, we have relationships … We don’t talk about it — that’s how it stays strong,’ she shared.

With Hollywood being a breeding ground for fleeting marriages, Parker shared that she and Matthew’s aversion to fame has kept them grounded.
‘We didn’t think of fame or money because, honestly, money was never part of the dream. It was to work in theater, to be around those people whose work I was in total awe of. I never saw the trappings; nobody talked about being a celebrity.’
The couple met in 1991 and were married six years later in New York City, where they still reside today.
The pair share three children: 18-year-old James and twin daughters Marion and Tabitha, 11, and are currently in the process of building a mega-mansion in the city after combining two brownstones together.
