London (ANI): After battling breast cancer, Sex And The City star Cynthia Nixon is all set to exchange vows with her female partner Christine Marinoni later this year. The 42-year-old star, who played Miranda Hobbes in the HBO series, had gone for surgery and six-and-a-half weeks of daily radiation treatment when she was diagnosed with the disease in 2006.
The traumatic experience has made her decide to cement her relationship with Marinoni by officially declaring their commitment to each other. Nixon, mother of two with former lover Danny Mozes, has lived with Marinoni in New York since 2005, and will be celebrating their union in a ceremony, which will be a low-key affair. "It will be a low-key gathering with just close friends and family attending," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
