Cynthia Nixon and girlfriend Christine Marinoni got engaged three years ago at a rally supporting same-sex marriage in New York, which was not legal at the time, have officially tied the knot on Sunday. “On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York,” Nixon’s rep told People in a statement. “Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera.”
Best known for playing Miranda Hobbes on the HBO series Sex and the City (1998–2004), Nixon wasn’t always into ladies. Nixon was in a relationship with photographer Danny Mozes from 1988 to 2003, and they have two children together, daughter Samantha, 14, and son Charles, 8. It wasn’t until 2004 that Nixon started dating education activist, Christine Marinoni.
when asked about her sexual orientation in 2007, Nixon responded, “I don’t really feel I’ve changed. I’d been with men all my life, and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.” Marinoni gave birth to the couple’s son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, on February 7th 2011, and now they live happily ever after.
