Matthew Broderick on James Wilkie's Latest Milestone
When 6 ½-year-old James Wilkie Broderick soon welcomes his new twin sisters, he’ll do so with a gummy grin! Proud dad Matthew Broderick revealed during a recent appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly that his son recently lost his first tooth, and his reaction was just what you would expect. “It was very fun to watch him wander around like this,” the 47-year-old said, demonstrating by putting his finger in the space where the tooth had been and looking dazed.
“I’d say, ‘James!’ And he’d say, ‘What? What?’ He couldn’t concentrate on anything else.”
The process was a slow one; Matthew went on to reveal that one night James visited he and wife Sarah Jessica Parker in their bedroom to give them an update. “I said, ‘How’s it feeling?'” Matthew recalled. “And his tooth was flat…like, parallel to the floor.”
“[I said] the tooth comes out, and a grown-up tooth comes in.”
Matthew can currently be seen in the Broadway production The Philanthropist.
