Cynthia Nixon wants to become the
latest gay Hollywood star to marry.
The Sex and the City star
announced her engagement to her girlfriend of nearly six years –
education activist Christine Mariononi – at Sunday's gay marriage
rally in New York City.
Nixon has said in the past she would
wed if gay marriage became legal in the Empire State.
Last year, comedienne Ellen DeGeneres
tied the knot with long-time girlfriend Portia de Rossi and Star
Trek star George Takei married his partner, Brad Altman. Both
weddings took place in California during the “Summer of Love.”
Nixon and Marinoni began dating after
she split with her boyfriend of 15-years, Danny Mozes. Nixon and
Mozes share custody of 11-year old Samantha and 6-year old Charles.
On coming out to her children, Nixon
said, “They were fine. My son was very little, but my daughter has
a gay uncle and her godmothers are lesbians.”
