VIDEO: What Cynthia Nixon Hates to Admit About Motherhood

The Sex and the City 2 star dishes about being a working mom and why she's grateful to have so much help from her girlfriend


Let's face it: Sometimes parenting is hard -- even for Hollywood stars like Sex and the City 2's Cynthia Nixon. The actress and mom of two shares the secret mothers don't want to admit. "I like to pretend my children never give me any trouble," Nixon, 44, tells iVillage exclusively. "But sometimes they do."

Clearly, the actress -- who's mom to son Charles, 8, and daughter Samantha, 13, can relate to her SATC character, working mom Miranda Hobbes. But thankfully Nixon, who's in a long-term relationship with Christine Marinoni, has the luxury of a little extra parenting help. "I'm really lucky," she says. "My girlfriend gave up her job about two or three years ago to be a stay-at-home mom. So it's a very big advantage when you have that."

Watch our exclusive video to find out how Nixon is similar to her no-nonsense character and how her own group of girlfriends compare to her onscreen BFFs.
