Broderick: 'I Didn't Want Kids'
MATTHEW BRODERICK did not want children when his wife SARAH JESSICA PARKER told him she was pregnant - but fatherhood quickly changed his mind. Broderick, 44, married the SEX AND THE CITY star in 1997, and the couple's first child, JAMES WILKE, was born in 2002 (28OCT02). THE STEPFORD WIVES actor admits he had doubts about becoming a father right up to his son's birth. He says, "I feel truly blessed and incredibly happy to have my son. You always wonder if it's a good idea to have a baby. I know I wasn't sure I wanted one. But I'm shocked at how much I like having him around. "Some chemical squirts into your brain and tells you it's all worth it. You just become overcome with this strange instinct to protect this child."
