Split, shmit! Instead of going their separate ways, as has been whispered and denied for weeks, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are pooling their assets yet again.

The couple are expecting twin daughters via a surrogate mother.

"Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are happily anticipating the birth of their twin daughters later this summer with the generous help of a surrogate," the actors' publicists said in a statement.

"The entire family is overjoyed."

Parker, 44, and Broderick, 47, also have a son, 6-year-old James Wilkie.

A source says that the already proud parents had been trying unsuccessfully to expand their brood for some time.

"At a certain point, they were presented with an alternative," the source says. "They could have kept trying on their own, but they've always wanted to have more children and felt this was the best way to go."

The insider says that Parker plans to take some time off after the twins' arrival—but not much. If all goes according to plan, she intends to start shooting the Sex and the City sequel sometime this summer, as well.

Considering their mom's considerable fashion savvy, it looks as if Suri Cruise, Matilda Ledger, et al. will have some competition in the dress-up department.
