Cynthia Nixon weds girlfriend Christine Marinoni
Cynthia Nixon and her partner of nearly eight-years Christine Marinoni tied the knot in New York City on Sunday.
The “Sex and the City” actress and the 45-year-old education activist have been together since 2004 and became engaged at a rally to support same-sex nuptials in 2009.
Their big day comes less than a year after gay marriage became legal in the American state. “On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York,” CBS News quoted her representative as telling People magazine in a statement on Monday.
“Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera,” the representative said. Marinoni gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, in February 2011.
Nixon has two children from her previous relationship with photographer Danny Mozes.
