Newly engaged Cynthia Nixon debuts hefty new sparkler

Tuesday May 19, 2009

Sex And The City star Cynthia Nixon was making the most of an opportunity to show off the new rock on her finger to her co-star Kristin Davis this week after becoming engaged to girlfriend Christine Marinoni. Cynthia shared the news as she spoke at a New York rally in support of same-sex civil partnerships.

Forty-three-year-old Cynthia, who plays lawyer Miranda Hobbs in the hit series - revealed that teaching union leader Christine proposed a month ago, and pair are hoping to enter into a civil union in New York if a bill to legalise gay marriage in the state is passed.

The couple - who live in Manhattan with Cynthia's two children Samantha, 14, and Charles, six – met in 2002. They started dating a year later after Cynthia split with her long term partner Danny Mozes, an English professor.
