Sarah Jessica Parker has splashed out over £11,000 on her twins' nursery.

The actress and husband Matthew Broderick - who are expecting twin girls through a surrogate mother - are determined to give the babies luxury surroundings.

Among their purchases are a £3,700 day bed and £4,000 armoire from high-end furniture company Bonne Nuit, a £3,000 double crib with Louis XIV bedding from Duetta Crib Mate and a £1,000 rocking horse imported from Europe.

A source said: "Sarah Jessica and Matthew will spend whatever it takes to make the nursery perfect. They want to give it a classical French look."

The 'Sex And The City' star - who also has a son James Wilkie, six, with Matthew - is already thinking about the twins' wardrobes and has been contacting her friends in the fashion world for exclusive garments.

The source added: "Sarah Jessica loves Isaac Mizrahi's tutu dresses and she's planning to commission him to make personalised versions for her girls. She's also fallen in love with baby Ugg boots for the cold New York winters."
