NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Kristin Davis is happy as a first time mom to her adopted daughter Gemma Rose, but she’s not quite ready to expand her family further.
“I had never thought about it because I was so kind of worried about the first,” Kristin told Anderson Cooper during an interview for Thursday’s “Anderson” when he asked if she wanted to adopt again. “Once she came I was like, ‘Hey I can do this, this is OK.’ So I mull it over, but because I’m a single mom, I want to focus on her and make sure I’m doing a good job first.”
Kristin’s “Sex and The City” character, Charlotte, adopted her first daughter too – and named her Rose, but the actress said the name was just a coincidence.
“I had totally forgotten that on ‘Sex and the City’ I also had a child named Rose and since I did this whole thing in secret I didn’t talk to anybody about the naming or the adopting at all and I didn’t realize the connection. Then we announced and everybody was like, ‘Oh, she named her after her ‘Sex and The City’ baby,’” Kristin said. “I didn’t even consciously [realize it], not at all, not at all. I almost named her Rose as a first name because I kept thinking it’s such a beautiful name. Isn’t it weird? I think it was lodged unconsciously.”
While there appear to be no immediate plans for “Sex and The City 3,” Kristin said she keeps in touch with her old co-stars – Kim Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon.
“We are pretty much family at this point. We have worked together for something really crazy, like 15 years,” she said.
“I was here in December, I saw Kim on Broadway. I took my baby and I saw Sarah’s babies. I took my baby and saw Cynthia’s babies. Cynthia’s on Broadway now and I’m going to see her next week. The writers — we all are friends,” Kristin added.
Kristin said when she does see her pals, they don’t share cosmo cocktails.
“I don’t drink, it’s true,” she told Anderson. “We go out sometimes, but it’s kind of challenging to go out. People have kind of a panic reaction, it’s just really odd. They’re like, ‘Oh My God.’”
And Kristin also confessed she and SJP once attempted to go out, only to realize their activity of choice could have created “SATC” fan pandemonium.
“One time, Sarah and I went shoe shopping and we were like, ‘What we’re we thinking? This is not going to work out.’ So we had to leave,” she said. “We tend to kind of gather at our homes, it’s a little easier.”
