Sarah also wore multiple gold pendants on silver chains dangling from her neck.

She appeared to be carrying some supplies with her, as she wore a large black backpack in addition to her smaller bag.

In her family’s statement, they said that her stepfather Paul ‘was surrounded with the love and gratitude of his adored wife, Barbara, of 54 years, and children, including Sarah Jessica Parker.’

‘Paul will be remembered with the spirit of loving kindness which was his faith, his special delight in his 13 grandchildren, and his sustained belief in making the world a more charitable, tolerant, and beautiful place for all,’ they concluded.

SJP’s mom, Barbara Parker, divorced her father, Stephen Parker, when she was just three years old, and remarried Forste, who worked as a truck driver and account executive, soon after.

Forse’s death happened shortly before the actress was set to be honored for ‘her vision and leadership’ at the New York City Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala at Lincoln Center on Wednesday night.

However, she pulled out of the event and never attended, a spokesperson shared with DailyMail.com

Sarah was also forced to cancel a virtual press conference for her new film Hocus Pocus 2, which was to be broadcast around the world.

During the ballet gala, it was announced on stage that she was not able to attend due to a ‘sudden devastating family situation.’

Sarah is the vide chair for the board of directors for the New York City Ballet and had been instrumental in planning out this year’s gala, according to Page Six.

The death of Parker’s stepfather comes one day after she attended the New York premiere of Hocus Pocus 2 with her husband, Matthew Broderick, and her twin daughters Tabitha and Marion, 13, for a rare appearance.

She is normally notoriously private about her family life, and the 13-year-olds have mostly stayed out of the spotlight, but she previously revealed that they’re big fans of the Halloween franchise, which is why they may have chosen to attend the event with their mother.

‘They started watching this movie, I’m going to say about three years ago,’ she told People earlier this year.

‘They were so excited to meet Bette [Midler] and Kathy [Najimy], Loretta kept asking me, “But wait, are we going to meet them as [their characters] Winnie and Mary? Or are we going to meet them as Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy?”‘

One of the twins donned a silver, sparkly gown on the red carpet, while the other stunned in a black dress with puffy sleeves.

They posed alongside their mom, who wore a white and purple floral Kimono-style top with pink pants and matching heels, and their father, who cut a dapper figure in a sharp gray suit.
