And Just Like That: SATC Fans Stunned As Carrie Bradshaw Changes Her Name

Sex and the City fans have been devouring And Just Like That, a reboot of the legendary franchise which follows Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte navigating their fifties in New York City.

The season got off to a heart-wrenching start when Carrie’s long-term love interest, Mr Big, keeled over and died after a heart attack.

And now, we’re seeing Carrie grappling with her grief, as it transpired that her husband had left a princely sum of $1 million to Natasha Naginsky – his ex-wife.

But while Carrie was left reeling at this news, viewers were left more than shocked that it appeared that Carrie had actually changed her name.

The episode sees the lawyers refer to her as Carrie Preston, meaning she took Big’s last name.

Considering we’ve always known her as Carrie Bradshaw, and it’s thought she still uses her original moniker for writing, fans were stunned to know she’d taken Big/John James Preston’s name.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “I started And Just Like That and am completely reeling that her married name is Carrie Preston.”

“Hold up,” said a second. “John James 'Mr. Big' Preston married Carrie Bradshaw on #satc therefore she is Carrie Preston. “This is too much.”

One was thrilled she decided to take her husband’s name: “Carrie Bradshaw has change her name to Carrie Preston now...good for you Carrie!”

While another was entirely bemused by the name change: “Excuse me, Carrie PRESTON?” they gasped.

However, true Sex and the City fans shouldn’t be too surprised that Carrie chose to take Big’s name.

In Sex and the City 2, the poorly received sequel to the 2008 movie, Carrie is surprised to discover her wedding hat for best pal Stanford’s nuptials has been reserved under married name – Carrie Preston.

Of course, now Big has tragically passed away, it remains to be seen whether she’ll stick to Preston, or revert back to Bradshaw.

And Just Like That continues on Sky Comedy and Now.
