Now there’s a happy ending if there ever was one—though we (spoiler alert!) don’t yet know the fate of Carrie and Aiden as season two of And Just Like That… ends, we do know that Ms. Bradshaw’s real-life counterpart, Sarah Jessica Parker, has adopted her character’s cat, named Shoe on the show, multiple outlets report.
Entertainment Weekly reports that, per SJP’s Instagram, it has been confirmed that Parker, her husband Matthew Broderick, and their three children are the new family of the kitten, although his real name is Lotus. The cat—from the Connecticut Humane Society—officially joined the Parker-Broderick household back in April. “He joins Rémy and Smila who we adopted in May 2022,” Parker captioned a carousel of photos of the family’s new addition. “If he looks familiar, that’s because he is.”
Parker’s AJLT costar Kristin Davis commented “Love [him] so much,” and Jessica Seinfeld called the family of five an “A+ Cat Family.”
And Lotus has an ongoing gig, it seems—he and SJP are set to reprise their roles as Shoe and Carrie, respectively, in the forthcoming And Just Like That… season three. “We are thrilled to spend more time in the Sex and the City universe telling new stories about the lives of these relatable and aspirational characters played by these amazing actors,” the show’s executive producer Michael Patrick King said, per People. “And Just Like That…here comes season three.”
