Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘Sparkling and Beloved’ Twins are 7 – See Their Sweet Birthday Photo

Sarah Jessica Parker is officially the mother of not one, but two 7-year-olds.

The Divorce actress helped her twins Loretta and Tabitha celebrate their birthday on Wednesday with a sweet and sentimental Instagram post.

“Happy birthday to our lovely, funny, dear, surprising, sparkling and beloved Loretta and Tabitha who today are 7 years old,” Parker, 51, wrote of her daughters with husband Matthew Broderick. “Let the celebrations begin.”

In the accompanying image, the little ladies ran alongside each other in a grassy field.

Last year, Parker told PEOPLE of her girls and son James Wilkie, 13, “They’re at an age — and have been for many years — where they really have their own identity.”

And that identity extends to their taste in attire: “Sunday through Thursday, the rule is they can wear whatever they want. And if we go to the theater or to the ballet, I get a say. But it’s really among choices that they approve of.”

They don’t look like twins that much to me.

Fraternal twins don’t look alike. I’ve seen many and it’s amazing how much they differ, from height/weight even skin color.

Vanna, I have twin grandchildren and they look nothing alike. The boy is y’all with dark brown hair and blue eyes. The girl just hit 5 foot, black hair and brown eyes. I have actually had people ask me if they have different parents even after I say they are twins..

We have a set of twin girls in our family, and one has blond hair and blue eyes, the other has brown hair and brown eyes. They look nothing alike, yet they are twins….
