Cynthia Nixon Talks About Her Lesbian Relationship

Cynthia Nixon, partnerAlthough I’m sure most people don’t really care about ‘s sexual orientation, I’m sure most of us were at least a little shocked when the news first broke out.

I distinctly remember feeling like I had seen this story somewhere before—like on the series.  Remember when Samantha shocked everyone by randomly appearing with a new woman (Sonia Braga)?  I mean it wasn’t like Nixon hadn’t been linked to a man before.

Prior to meeting education activist Christine Marinoni, the actress had been involved in a long relationship (15 years!!) with Danny Mozes.  Nixon was also a mother of two children when her new romance started back in 2003.

Now the 41-year-old, who has been fairly tight-lipped about her partner, is opening up a bit about her love.  “I’m in love with [Christine] because she’s her. If she were a man, would I be in love with her? I don’t know. We shop and cook and raise children - we both pitch in.”

As for her children, Nixon says that they have acclimated quite well to the new situation.  “My son was very little [when it happened], but my daughter has a gay uncle [and her godmothers] are lesbians.”

When it comes to her heterosexual relationship on the big screen, it appears from the latest Sex and the City trailer that her marriage to Steve might have hit a bumpy patch.  If you haven’t had a chance to see extended clip for yourself yet, click here.
