Cynthia Nixon Announces Engagement

Sex and the City star, Cynthia Nixon flashed her new diamond engagement ring at a Sunday rally in New York to support same-sex marriage – a measure New York Governor, David A Paterson, is sponsoring with help from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Our favorite red head revealed that longtime partner, Christine Marinoni, popped the question last month, and she happily did the ring finger wave in front of the supportive crowd while shouting,

“It’s time already!”

Nixon and Marinoni, an education activist, began dating in 2004, following the actress’s 2003 split from her companion of 16 years, photographer Danny Mozes, with whom she has two children: Samantha, 12, and Charles, 6.

Nixon has said,

“I don’t really want to get married to get married pretend. I think we’d like to do it in a real, actual, legal way that the state would recognize.”

There’s nothing pretend about that diamond, sister.

No wedding details have been announced, but I’ll stay on the case for all you SATC fans. Here’s hoping Miss Cynthia will stay far away from Carrie Bradshaw ‘bird bridal’.)

Diamonds really are a girls’ best friend, in this case. Congrats to the happy couple.

What do you guys think of the news?
