"Aidan" Sex and the City: "Aidan Shaw" was "Carrie Bradshaw's" love interest for a good portion of the series. While "Carrie" may have ended up with "Mr. Big" in the end, real-life "Aidan" actor, John Corbett has found his own happy ending! Find out here what "Aidan" Sex in the City is up to today!  

"Aidan" Sex and the City first made his appearance in season 3 of the series. "Aidan" is "Carrie's" (Sarah Jessica Parker) perfect man and will do anything for her. However, in what becomes one of the first television shows to portray a woman cheating on a man completely aware of what she is doing is wrong, "Carrie" cheats on him with "Mr. Big" (Chris Noth). 

While "Aidan" may have been left heart-broken on the series, real-life "Aidan" actor, John Corbett, has found his soul mate in real life.

"Aidan" from Sex and the City is the man we would all love to date- tall, dark, handsome, and all-around a good guy! A builder by trade, "Aidan" makes furniture for a living and eventually opens his own bar with "Miranda's" (Cynthia Nixon) love-interest "Steve Brady" (David Eigenberg).

"Aidan" and "Carrie" seem to be the perfect couple, that is until "Carrie" cheats on "Aidan" with none other than "Mr. Big"! Devastated and heart-broken, "Aidan" and "Carrie" break-up and we don't see "Aidan" again until season 4 when "Aidan" comes back into "Carrie's" life and proposes to her! 

While "Aidan" and "Carrie" eventually break-up for a final time do to "Carrie's" inability to commit to him, "Aidan" eventually moves on with another woman and has three children.
