Sex and The City: The Movie hits theaters this May 30 – but for Carrie Bradshaw’s BFF, his next big project is getting ready for potential parenthood.
“I’m taking parenting class because I’m going to try to adopt a kid,” Willie Garson, who plays Stanford Blatch, told PEOPLE at last weekend’s Hugo Boss/Glamour Studio Glam suite. “I’ve been getting that all together, and we’ll see.
“I’m thinking a boy, but with the right kid it doesn’t really matter,” said Garson, 43.
Asked if adoption has challenged him, the actor said, “I kind of knew how difficult it was going to be, and it’s pretty difficult.”
Babies are also rumored to be on the ladies’ minds in the big screen version of Sex and the City. Garson says playfully about Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) becoming a mom, “Oh, I don’t know – I’m not allowed to tell you. Anything could happen. I could become a mom. Kim [Cattrall] becomes a grandfather.”
