Hollywood marriages aren't renowned for their longevity but Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick continue to buck the trend as they celebrated their 23rd anniversary together on 19 May.

To mark the momentous occasion, the Sex and the City actor posted a throwback black and white photo of the pair together to Instagram as fresh-faced young stars.

The 55-year-old wrote alongside the sweet snap: "May 19th, 2020. 23 years. We've come a long way baby. X, SJ."

Parker wed the 58-year-old Ferris Bueller star in 1997 when they were aged 32 and 35 respectively.

The couple went on to have a son, James, in 2002 before welcoming twin girls Marion and Tabitha in 2009.

Their wedding vows were officiated by Broderick's sister Janet Broderick Craft, an Episcopal minister.

She recently made headlines after falling ill with COVID-19 back in March before going on to make a recovery.

The pandemic has also seen the couple's plans for a joint venture put on hold. They were set to star alongside each other in a revival of Plaza Suite before Broadway was closed on the day they were due to have the first preview.
