Chris Noth has returned to social media, after being accused of sexual assault.
The 67-year-old actor, who is best known for playing Mr Big in Sex and the City, took to Instagram to share some snaps of his sons Keats and Orion.
Alongside a photo of Orion playing basketball, Chris wrote: “SWISH. It’s a thrill to watch his love for basketball blossom.”

He also paid tribute to his son Keats on his birthday, writing: “Feb 18- Happy Birthday little Keats- you have brought light and blue skies into our lives!”
Chris took a break from social media after he was accused by four women of sexual abuse.
In December, two women – who do not know each other – alleged Chris sexually assaulted them in separate incidents in 2004 and 2015 in an article published by The Hollywood Reporter.
The women – using the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31 – said recent promotions of the Sex And The City’s sequel ‘And Just Like That…’ stirred up painful memories.
The women claimed the incidents occurred in Los Angeles in 2004 and in New York in 2015, respectively.
Chris has vehemently denied the allegations, saying: “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false.”
“These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual.”
“It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women,” he added.
Shortly afterwards, The Daily Beast reported that a 30-year-old tech executive claimed Chris sexually assaulted her in 2010 at a New York City restaurant while she worked as a hostess and lounge singer.
The third woman has claimed she was 18 years old at the time.
The actor’s rep told NBC News in a statement: “The story is a complete fabrication, and the alleged accounts detailed throughout read like a piece of bad fiction.”
“Chris has no knowledge of who this individual is and, as stated yesterday, has and would never cross that line.”
A fourth woman, musician Lisa Gentile, accused the 67-year-old of groping her nearly 20 years ago, claiming she first met the actor in 1998 at a New York City restaurant.
She claimed that in 2002, Chris offered her a lift home and asked to see her apartment, where he allegedly kissed her, “forcibly pulled” her against him and groped her.
At a press conference, Lisa claimed: “I grabbed his hands with my hands and tried to stop it. I finally managed to push them away and get out of his grasp and yell, ‘No, I don’t want this’.”
She alleged that Chris stormed out and rang her the following day to say he would “ruin her career” if she told anyone about what had happened.
The actor’s former SATC co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthina Nixon and Kristin Davis, also commended the women for speaking out in a joint statement.
In December, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed that there was, as of yet, no investigation into the sexual assault allegations.
Chris married his wife Tara Wilson in 2012. The couple met in 2001 – three years before the first alleged assault – and have two sons together, Keats and Orion.
