‘We spoke about being single parents through adoption often. And nothing gave him more joy and pride than his son Nathen.

Parker revealed in the comment section of costar Chris Noth’s Instagram tribute to Garson that she is ‘not ready’ to address the actor’s death.

Noth’s Instagram post included a sweet snapshot of Parker and Garson filming the first Sex And The City film in 2007.
