Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker on her 50th birthday yesterday

Sarah Jessica Parker may have lived in New York for, like, forever, but she's clearly still pretty enamoured with the city she calls home.

As she hit the the big 5-0 yesterday (no, we can't believe it either), the actress and sometime shoe designer let us in on her day of celebrations via her Instagram account – and her birthday could not have been more New York if she tried.

First up, the mother-of-three kicked off her day with every New Yorker's favourite breakfast: eggs. If the omelette looks a little less professional than the one she shared on her husband, Matthew Broderick's, birthday last week, it's because this one was made by two of her 'pixies'.


Next up? A trip to the Empire State Building of course! What better way to see in a milestone birthday than with the best view in the city? As well as treating us to the view, SJP also shared one very sweet selfie of her and son, James.


And no woman who played Carrie Bradshaw for so long could have a birthday without a cocktail (or two) and a cake. It just wouldn't be right. And so SJP rounded off her day with both.


And just like her longtime alter-ego, it's clear that New York City is still the one big life in Sarah Jessica Parker's life.

Happy birthday, Sarah!
