Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has married her partner Christine Marinoni.

The couple had been planning to marry for three years after getting engaged at a rally to support same-sex marriage in New York, before it was legal.

“On

May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York,” a representative told People magazine in a statement.

“Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera.”

The couple have been together since 2004 and Marinoni gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, in February last year.

Nixon also has two children from her previous relationship with photographer Danny Mozes.

The couple waited to marry until it was legal in New York, which legalised gay nuptials last year.
