Sarah Jessica Parker admits she should "let" her husband do more in their home.

The 'New Year's Eve' actress insists Matthew Broderick - with who she has son James Wilkie, nine, and two-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha - is very involved with family life but sometimes she can't help but take over their domestic tasks.

She said: "He helps a lot. There are things I could let him do more, but I just don't because it's my nature. But if I ask for help or he sees the need, he has his own instinct."

The 46-year-old actress also admitted she is sometimes a "disaster" when it comes to juggling work and family life.

She said: "I'm like many women - some days I'm victorious and some days it's a disaster.

"There's an enormous difference between what happens in my life and most working women. I can decide not to work when I want to and millions of women don't have that liberty."
