Stepfather’s death is said by Sarah Jessica Parker to have been caused by “an unexpected and quick sickness.”

The star of “Sex and the City” was anticipated to receive recognition at the 10th annual Fall Fashion Gala of New York City Ballet.

 

The stepfather of Sarah Jessica Parker passed away. 76-year-old Paul Giffin Forste

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Parker’s family said: “Our family is devastated to announce that Paul Giffin Forste passed away yesterday at age 76 after an unexpected and fast illness.”

 

“In his final moments, his devoted wife of 54 years, Barbara, and their children, including Sarah Jessica Parker, were all around him, showering him with love and thanks.”

 

The statement ended, “Paul will be remembered with the attitude of loving compassion which was his faith, his particular delight in his 13 grandchildren, and his sustained belief in making the world a more generous, tolerant, and beautiful place for all.

 

The New York City Ballet’s 10th annual Fall Fashion Gala was to celebrate the star of “Sex and the City,” but a representative for Parker told Fox News Digital that Parker didn’t attend the event at all.

 

AIDAN FROM “SEX AND THE CITY” WILL RETURN IN SEASON 2 OF “AND JUST LIKE THAT,” SAYS SARAH JESSICA PARKER.

 

According to Page Six, the 57-year-old actress founded the first Fall Fashion Gala in 2012 and currently holds the position of vice chair of the board of directors. Since then, the event has helped earn more than $24 million for the charity.

 

After it was reported that Parker missed the event due to a purported “sudden sad family problem,” the news of Forste’s death surfaced.

 

The “And Just Like That…” actress made an appearance at the “Hocus Pocus 2” New York premiere the evening before Parker was scheduled to attend the gala.

 

Along with her husband, Matthew Broderick, Parker was joined by her 13-year-old twin daughters, Tabitha and Marion.

 

James Wilkie, their 19-year-old son, was not present for the gathering of the family.

 

Parker looked stunning in a bright pink pair of slacks and a floral silver blouse with a beaded edge. She completed her look with a pair of pink heels.

 

The couple’s twin daughters, who made a very special appearance on the red carpet, came dressed to the nines: Tabitha donned a stylish black outfit and Marion wore a sparkling pink and silver dress. They both added glittery heels to finish their outfits.

 

Broderick, 60, walked with his family while dressed in a brown suit and tie.

Parker plays Sarah Sanderson in the “Hocus Pocus” sequel, which was released nearly 30 years after the first film. In the American fantasy comedy film, her co-stars Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy return as the Sanderson Sisters.
