Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni met at an education fundraiser in New York City in January 2004.
Cynthia Nixon has been quoted saying,
“I never felt like there was an unconscious part of me around that woke up or that came out of the closet. There wasn’t a struggle, there wasn’t an attempt to suppress. I met this woman, I fell in love with her, and I’m a public figure.”She added, “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.”
Isn’t that the truth!!! To have someone in our lives who’s an equal sounds dreamy doesn’t it? Well, when you consider 37% of all households today have two working partners who bring in the money, it would be so refreshing to come home and find the trash was already taken out and possibly, (I know I’m reaching on this one) have dinner already started!!! Color me crazy!
Cynthia Nixon has two children, Samantha and Charles, from her previous relationship with Danny Mozes. They split up in June 2003. Cynthia says her children have adapted well to her relationship with Christine. She was quoted in the New York Daily News as saying, “They were fine. My son was very little [when it happened], but my daughter has a gay uncle and [her godmothers] are lesbians.”
Cynthia Nixon won a Best Actress Tony Award for her portrayal of a mother suffering the accidental death of her child in the play Rabbit Hole. When the award was announced, she kissed Christine at the awards ceremony.
Released in 2010, Nicole Kidman produced Rabbit Hole with only a 28 day shoot and a budget of $10 million dollars. Rabbit Hole received a standing ovation at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
Christine Marinoni gave birth to a boy, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, on Monday, Feb. 7,2011.
Congratulation Cynthia and Christine! Here’s to the rest of us finding a our trash emptied for us as well!
