Rags to riches to rags? Sex and the City's haute mama Sarah Jessica Parker grew up poor. And though the actress and her husband Matthew Broderick are well off, they don't want their son James Wilkie to take his lifestyle for granted.

When a Parade reporter recently commented that the 5-year-old wouldn't have to wear hand-me-downs, Parker said her son's wardrobe was quite the contrary. She said:

“Oh, no. He only wears hand-me-downs because I’ve got all these older nephews,” Parker insists. “That’s the God’s honest truth. Plus, my mother saved all my brothers’ clothes. I am not kidding. I don’t think I’ve ever bought him any clothes. Maybe a new winter coat. I do buy him shoes, because everybody’s feet are different.”

Would you be comfortable wearing designer duds while your lil darlings were in previously worn?
