Glam in the city! Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out in style with her husband, Matthew Broderick, for a midweek date night in New York City on Thursday, October 13. After nearly two decades of marriage, the award-winning actress, 51, shared this week that she’s still madly in love with her husband.

In an upcoming interview with CBS Sunday Morning’s Jane Pauley, Parker explained how she and Broderick, 54, are still going strong.

“The things that annoy me don’t matter,” Parker said in the interview, which will air on Sunday, October 16. “And I think that is because we are functioning… We’re grown-up people. I feel like it’s as simple as I like him so much. Like he’s still the person that I want, that I hope I’m making proud, or whose approval I’m still needing in some way. He’s still the smartest and funniest to me.”

Just this week, the talented duo attended the Friends of Hudson River Park’s Annual Gala in NYC, where Broderick, 54, was honored, and his wife serves as part of the honorary committee.

The mom of 3 stunned in an embroidered black, purple, and royal blue gown with shoulder-baring sleeves. Her husband donned a dark suit and accessorized with a blue, printed tie and his signature glasses.

SJP documented the festive evening on Instagram, posting a pair of videos featuring a dance troupe and a drumline. “Friends of Hudson River Gala. My husband amongst those being honored. How right. And what a fantastic celebration. X, sj,” the Divorce star shared with her nearly three million Instagram followers.

Later that evening, the actress posted a stunning still of the couple’s table, complete with place cards printed with Parker and Broderick’s names next to Harry Connick Jr.’s – who hosted the annual event. “A really lovely evening continues… X, sj,” Parker captioned the shot.

SJP – who will celebrate 20 years of marriage with Broderick in May 2017 – recently admitted that if she had a wedding day do-over, she would opt for a more traditional gown. The Sex and the City alum donned an unconventional black dress to the couple’s wedding back in 1997.

“I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress,” Parker revealed during a recent interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens: Live. “There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging… I would do it differently.”
