“Sex In The City” actress Cynthia Nixon’s partner Christine Marinoni has given birth to their son.
Actress Cynthia Nixon and her partner Christine Marinoni welcomed a son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, on Monday.
Their rep confirms the news saying, “Christine and baby are doing great.”
Cynthia, 44, has previously spoken about how her children Samantha, 14, and son Charles, 8, whose father is her former boyfriend Danny Mozes, are very close to Marinoni and call her mommy.
Nixon said, “Maybe I’m just lucky, but I feel like Christine is so amazing with our kids – because they’re our kids.
“I feel like falling in love with her is part of being amazed at how she makes our family so much better.”
Nixon said she loves Christine’s “butchness”, stating, “She’s basically a short man with boobs. A lot of what I love about her is her butchness. I’m not saying I fell in love with her in a sexually neutral way. I love her sexuality – it’s a big part of what I love about her – but I feel like it was her.
“It wasn’t something in me that was waiting to come out. It was like, this person is undeniable. How can I let this person walk by? Christine would probably kill me for saying this, but my daughter said one time that if you really had to break this down, it looks like she would be butch and I would be femme… but really once you get to know us it’s really the opposite.”
Nixon and Marinoni began dating in 2004 and announced their engagement in 2009.
