Sarah Jessica Parker has revealed that she has brought Carrie Bradshaw's adorable kitten home with her.

In the series, Carrie acquired the kitten after Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez) adopted him from a veterinary surgery, with Carrie naming him Shoe after she took him to live at her apartment.

Posting a series of cute Instagram snaps, the actress revealed the kitten's real name is actually Lotus and that she'd adopted him back in April.

"His off-camera name is Lotus. He and his siblings were all given botanical names when they were rescued as newborns by the @cthumanesociety," she wrote, adding that he had been adopted from the Connecticut Humane Society with her husband Matthew Broderick.

She added: "Adopted officially by the Parker/Broderick family in April 2023. He joins Rémy and Smila whom we adopted in May 2022. If he looks familiar, that's because he is."

The adorable photos showed Lotus settling into his new home, meeting Parker's other cats as well as being held in the air and kissed by the actress.

Fellow SATC star Kristin Davis, Michelle Pfeiffer and The Mandalorian's Amy Sedaris were amongst the celebrities sharing their joy in the comments, with the latter stating: "A little scene stealer is what that is!!". And Just Like That fans were also delighted to see Parker caring for the kitten in real-life.

"And just like cat," one person joked, while another added: "I knew he was your real cat. You can't fake that bond."
