Maybe it wasn’t quite as splashy and fashion-forward as Carrie Bradshaw‘s wedding to Mr. Big, but these real-life nuptials are an even more welcome bit of news.
Former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon was married yesterday to her longtime partner, Christine Marinoni, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly. The wedding took place in New York City – one of the handful of states where gay marriage is legal – and Cynthia wore a Carolina Herrera ensemble for the occasion.
The newlyweds are also (fairly) new moms, as you’ll recall.
Last February, Christine gave birth to the couple’s son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni. (They choose to keep the dad’s identity private.) Cynthia also has two children, Samantha and Charles, from her prior marriage to Danny Moses.
The newlywed says that she’d never been in love with another woman before meeting Christine in 2004, “but when I did, it didn’t feel so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
