And just like that...Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick have been married for 26 years.

On May 20, the actress shared a sweet tribute to her husband and revealed how they celebrated the happy occasion. "Happy 26th anniversary my husband," she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of a Champagne cork. "That sure was a nice celebration and a real nice bottle of champagne.
And a gorgeous walk home."

The leading star of And Just Like That... continued, "Oh the miles we have strolled together. I love you. XOX, your SJ."

According to The New York Times, Sarah, 58, and Matthew, 61, met in November 1991 through Sarah's older brothers, Pippin and Toby. They had become friends with Matthew after he directed a play at the Naked Angels Theater Company, where Toby performed. But it wasn't until February 1992 when the Ferris Bueller's Day Off actor summoned up the courage to ask his now-wife out on a date.

"He left a very charming, very self-effacing message on the machine," Sarah told The New York Times in 1996. "You know, 'Hi, it's Matthew Broderick.'"

Sex and the City Celebrity Cameos

The two wed in New York City on May 19, 1997. Last year, Sarah paid tribute to Matthew on their 25th—silver—anniversary by sharing a throwback pic of the two and an image of an invitation to their low-key wedding "party." "Evening Attire," she wrote at the time. "Silver baby. 25 years. And counting. X, your wife." 

In 2002, the Sex and the City alum birth to the couple's son James Wilkie Broderick. She and Matthew welcomed twin daughters Marion Loretta Elwell Broderick and Tabitha Hodge Broderick via surrogate in 2009.

Last December, James, now 20, and Marion and Tabitha, now 13, joined their parents at the premiere of the Broadway musical Some Like It Hot in what marked a rare public appearance for the couple's children.
