Until now, Sex and The City's Cynthia Nixon had been very quiet about the lesbian relationship she was in. But, recently, the actress opened up about her love, their life together, and how her kids handle her lifestyle choice.
Cynthia has been dating education activist Christine Marinoni since 2003. That same year, Cynthia had separated from her longtime boyfriend and father of her two children, Danny Mozes.
"I'm in a fantastic relationship. It's been about four years," Cynthia revealed. "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."
Cynthia's kids, Samantha, 11, and Charles, 8, seem to have no problems with their mom's love. "They were fine," she says of the coming out. "My son was very little [when it happened], but my daughter has a gay uncle [and her godmothers] are lesbians."
Good for Cynthia for being so open and honest. She's teaching her kids that they should be proud and love themselves for who they are -- something kids desperately need to know.
