Cynthia Nixon and longtime girlfriend Christine Marinoni said "I do" in the Big Apple on Sunday.

"On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York," her rep said in a statement. "Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera."

The ladies have been together since 2004, and they got engaged at a rally to support same-sex marriage in New York three years ago. In February 2011 Marinoni gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, and Nixon has two children from her previous relationship with photographer Danny Mozes.

Cynthia Nixon Seeks To Clarify Her "Gay By Choice" Statement

Jan 31, 2012 07:00 AM

230CNixon092108_02_X17.jpgAfter causing much controversy in the gay community over her recent "gay by choice" remark to the New York Times, Cynthia Nixon is ready to set the record straight on what she really meant to say about her bisexuality.

The Sex and the City star, who left her ex-boyfriend of 15 years for education activist Christine Marinoni in 2004, told The Advocate on Monday:

    "My recent comments in The New York Times were about me and my personal story of being gay. I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can't and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify: While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual."

The Golden Globe winning actress went on to say that she believes bisexuality is "not a choice" but "a fact" and she has "chosen" to be in a gay relationship with her partner because, "for me it's a choice, and you don't get to define my gayness for me."

The LGBT community believes that sexual orientation is not something that can be chosen, but is instead inherited at birth.

Cynthia added, "In terms of sexual orientation, I don't really feel I've changed...I'm just a woman in love with another woman. I think for gay people who feel 100 percent gay, it doesn't make any sense. And for straight people who feel 100 percent straight, it doesn't make any sense."

Cynthia Nixon Reveals That Being Gay Is Her "Choice", Shows Off Her Dramatic New Look

Cynthia Nixon appeared on Live With Kelly this morning, and the Sex And The City star revealed a bold (and bald) new look with her shaved head. Cynthia buzzed off her famous red locks for her role in the Manhattan Theatre Club production of Wit, where she plays cancer patient Vivian Bearing.

Cynthia told host Kelly Ripa, "I thought it was kind of gonna be no muss-no fuss, but I have to shave it every day! It's got kind of a five o'clock shadow, and you don't want to go on with that ... I was always kind of curious to see what it would be like. I like it; I don't think I'm gonna keep it forever." Back in 2006, Cynthia discovered that she had the early stages of breast cancer during a routine mammogram, so obviously this role is very close to her heart.

In a separate interview with the NY Times, Cynthia chatted openly about her sexuality, telling the paper, "I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line 'I've been straight and I've been gay, and gay is better.' And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice. I understand that for many people it's not, but for me it's a choice, and you don't get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it's a choice, then we could opt out ... Why can't it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate?"

Cynthia is engaged to girlfriend Christine Marinoni, with whom she has an 11-month-old son Max. Prior to that, she had a 15-year relationship with Danny Mozes, with whom she had two children.

Cougar And The City

Jennifer Coolidge New York Comedy Comix Comedy Club One Woman Show Cynthia Nixon Jennifer Coolidge Christine Marinoni New York White Pants Comedy Jennifer Coolidge was practically busting out of her dress after leaving her audience (including SATC's Cynthia Nixon and girlfriend Christine Marinoni) busting up laughing during her standup show last night in NYC.

Some gems overheard at the performance include:

    "Cocaine kicks the sh*t out of Jenny Craig. I'm gonna tell Kirstie Alley about it!"

And, when talking about Brokeback Mountain:

    "No gay director would have had the @ss loving scene right after the bean eating scene."

In this case, we definitely think the actress, who's played the MILF in American Pie and Jane Lynch's girlfriend in Best in Show, should definitely quit her day job ... and become a full-time comedienne!

Sex and the city dress shopping film setThe SATC girls - excuse me, women - paused in the middle of shooting a scene from the sequel today to pose for a photo op outside of Bergdorf Goodman's in NYC!

And the ladies were predictably costumed to the nines, with Samantha showing lots of skin, Miranda wearing an unfortunate color, Carrie wearing her new signature necklace and gold aviator frames and Charlotte looking like the proper upper-east sider!

I loooove getting a sneak peak at the SATC 2 fashion, but would love even more to get a sneak peak at the script! How can they top a Big wedding?

Maybe with a Big baby?
