Cynthia Nixon and girlfriend welcome a baby boy

The pair have kept their happy news under wraps, until now

Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend Christine Marinoni have welcomed a son, after Christine gave birth to a bouncing baby boy on Monday.


The pair – who have released no details of the child’s biological father – had not announced they were expecting, and have kept their happy news under wraps until now.

Now a rep for the pair has confirmed the exciting arrival of Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, and revealed mother and baby are doing well.

‘Christine and baby are doing great,’ a spokesperson told American magazine, People.

Cynthia confirmed her relationship with Christine – an education activist – in 2004, after splitting with boyfriend Danny Mozes.

‘In terms of sexual orientation I don’t really feel I’ve changed,’ she revealed at the time.

‘I’d been with men all my life, and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.’

Cynthia and Christine live in New York with Cynthia’s two children Samantha 14, and Charles, 8.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
