Sarah Jessica Parker is nothing like her on-screen alter ego Carrie Bradshaw and has admitted she is fully embracing family life and loves her minivan.

Speaking to usatoday.com the actress said "How else will we fit in all our kids? It has to fit our kids, two adults, maybe a babysitter, and never mind our dogs and luggage. It's a Honda minivan, and I freakin' love it." Parker has three children with fellow actor and husband Matthew Broderick, son James Wilkie, 8, and twins, Tabitha and Loretta, 2, the former Sex and the City star was speaking ahead of the release of her new movie I Don't Know How She Does It On Friday (16.11.2011) and says that her work is imitating her life "There's a lot that was very, very familiar. Perhaps more importantly, I thought it was a story that would be enormously resonant with a lot of other women. Women that are working in the home as much as outside the home, it's their story."

Born in Ohio the 46-year-old actress began her career as a singer and dancer enrolling in several performing arts programmes while at school. Her early roles came in theatre as she starred in production of Annie and The Sound of Music, her career developed in the early 1990s when she appeared in movies such as Honeymoon in Vegas with NICLOAS CAGE as well as critically acclaimed film Ed Wood opposite Johnny Depp. However, she gained international stardom following her role in Sex and the City and is currently filming her latest movie, New Year's Eve, a romantic comedy about several interlocking couples.
