Cynthia Nixon welcomes a son with partner Christine Marinoni

Cynthia Nixon Cynthia Nixon and her fiancee, Christine Marinoni, welcomed a baby boy on Monday, naming him Max Ellington Nixon Marinoni.

Marinoni is the birth-mom, actress Nixon's rep told People on Tuesday, and "Christine and baby are doing great."

The two have been together since 2004. The actress announced their engagement while speaking at a rally for same-sex marriage equality in New York in May 2009. Marinoni is a stay-at-home mom to Nixon's other children from a previous relationship, according to the Advocate; Samantha was born in 1995, and Charles was born in 2002.

"We could go to Canada, and we could go to Connecticut, and we could even go to Iowa, but we don't want to," she said at the rally. "We want to get married right here in New York City, where we live, where our kids live."

This is child No. 3 for the "Sex and the City" star, who had her daughter and son with photographer Danny Mozes. Nixon and Mozes split in 2003.

Sex and the City 2 premiere

Though the girls decamp to Abu Dhabi, the "Sex and the City 2" cast payed homage to their fifth character -- New York City -- with a star-studded premiere at Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday night.

Sarah Jessica Parker turned up in an electric yellow Valentino gown with husband Matthew Broderick in tow.

Sex-and-the-City-gallery "I'm still so nervous," she told E!'s Marc Malkin, "look at my cuticles!"

SJP's on-screen gal pals Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis proved to be showstoppers as well. Also on the scene was the real-life "Carrie," Candace Bushnell with her husband, Charles Askegard.

And don't miss Liza "Single Ladies" Minnelli, decked out in a gray latex number that Lady Gaga would approve of. 

One familiar face on the carpet was model Noah Mills (who we introduced to you), celebrating his on-screen debut as a fling for the notoriously sexy Samantha Jones. Other men of "Sex" included Mr. Big a.k.a. Chris Noth, Jason Lewis and John Corbett.

Get all the fabulous pics in our premiere gallery, and catch the full movie trailer before the film hits the big screen on May 27.

Kim Cattrall says sayonara to Samantha with dark, desperate new role

Kim cattrall meet monica velour For Kim Cattrall, perhaps the perfect counter programming to "Sex and the City" siren Samantha Jones was her buttoned-up Amelia Bly in Roman Polanski's thriller "The Ghost Writer."

Yet the actress is taking a further departure (or plunge) with her Tribeca Film Festival indie "Meet Monica Velour," in which she plays an actress turned porn star turned lonely stripper. 

Cattrall gained 15 pounds to play the fallen star, a transition she couldn't bear to see during filming.

"Most of the time as an actress, you want to look desirable, you want to be pretty, you want to be sexy, you want to be lit properly -- whereas here there were days when I didn’t even have any makeup on," she tells New York magazine.

"There were days when they actually changed the light to make me look harder and more overweight or just [worse]." 

"Velour" director Keith Bearden wanted her to gain 35 pounds, but Cattrall couldn't accommodate his request in enough time.

"Really, just for health reasons I couldn’t do that. I also didn’t have enough time to do it safely with a doctor’s care. But what I did was I put on 15 pounds, and that was comfortable. I could do that. I just didn’t exercise at all."

Sarah Jessica Parker covers Vogue: movies, motherhood and the SJP brand [video]

Sarah jessica parker vogue cover may Sarah Jessica Parker brings her whimsical charm once again to Vogue, serving as May's cover girl in support of "Sex and the City 2."

Mario Testino shot the American beauty outside of New York City, styled by Vogue's Tonne Goodman.

Working mom would be an understatement the size of the "Sex" box office in the context of Parker, who's acting, consulting at design house Halston and raising three children with husband Matthew Broderick.

Son James Wilke, now 7, was joined by twin sisters Marion and Tabitha last June. As the baby girls approach a year, Parker reflected on the surrogacy process she and Broderick endured.

"All the stuff that matters is secretive and worrisome. You can’t talk about how you feel about the woman who’s carrying your children; you can only talk about it to your husband," she says, “and he just doesn’t want to talk about it as much as you do.”

Still she maintains the girls bring endless joy, and that the baby boom in the Broderick house is no accident ...

New 'Sex and the City 2' trailer: Abu Dhabi and the return of Aidan

A full trailer for "Sex and the City 2" has finally been released, and it unveils all sorts of fantastic new things -- aside from being the best movie ever (in my humble opinion). 

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia NIxon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis return in various states of fabulousness. The first film saw Parker's Carrie Bradshaw endeavoring to marry Mr. Big (a.k.a. John James Preston, played by Chris Noth); this one takes things up two years in.

Sex and the city 2 new trailer Cameos abound: Penelope Cruz, Liza Minnelli, Miley Cyrus. For "Sex" die-hards, however, only one sighting really matters -- the jaw-dropping appearance of John Corbett, who played Carrie's on-and-off boyfriend Aidan on seasons three and four of the television show.   

Aidan materializes in a market place in Abu Dhabi, where the girls steal away to escape Manhattan and their obligations. 

Other highlights include Cattrall's Samantha stacking wonder pills to retain youth, Davis' perfect Charlotte feeling the pressures of motherhood and Nixon's Miranda on the verge of optimism (which, trust me, is a huge deal). 

"Sex and the City 2" opens May 27.

First Look: 'The Carrie Diaries' takes 'Sex and the City' back to high school

Sjp hair While we await the reunion of Sarah Jessica Parker and pals in "Sex and the City 2" this May, "SATC" author Candace Bushnell is taking us back to the golden age of Carrie Bradshaw.

On April 27, HarperTeen will release "The Carrie Diaries," Bushnell's chronicle of Bradshaw as a teenager. Our friends at Teen Vogue have a first look at the anticipated book, which paints fashion icon Carrie as a small-town teenager trying to find herself.

"This is not Carrie Bradshaw as a teenager in 2009, this is Carrie Bradshaw in the late '70s," Bushnell says in a promo clip. "It was a time when young women for the first time ...

Gwyneth Paltrow enlists a few pals in praising personal trainer Tracy Anderson, post-Madonna

Gwyneth paltrtow Turns out her recent parting of the ways with Madonna wasn't the kiss of death for celeb trainer Tracy Anderson.

Though mildly scandalous rumors of neglect and too-extreme arm toning plagued Anderson late last year, A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow has featured the fitness guru yet again in her weekly online newsletter, Goop

"She has kicked my formerly sagging [butt] into shape and I will be forever grateful. This week, Tracy shares with us a little arm series that I did everyday preparing for Iron Man and that I take on the road," Gwyneth shares.

Not only does Paltrow sing the praises of that buttocks-saving Tracy Anderson Method, she sends along kind words from some of the trainer's other high-profile clients, including Courteney Cox-Arquette and "Sex and the City 2" star Kristin Davis.

"I have seen amazing results that I never thought were possible," Cox-Arquette said. "My butt has lifted, my arms are sculpted, and my skin is tight and actually clings to the muscle again."

Likewise, Davis finds the workouts "elongate and tone muscle. I’ve tried most of the classes and methods out there, and this is the first one that hasn’t added bulk over time (especially to my legs)."

Cox-Arquette displays her Anderson-enhanced bod each week on "Cougar Town." Paltrow and Davis will show off theirs this summer in theaters, with "Iron Man 2" and the "Sex" sequel, respectively.

Samantha's new 'Sex and the City' boy toy: Meet Noah Mills

Noah mills 1 Man candy is as crucial to the formula as Manhattan and Manolo Blahnik, so in "Sex and the City 2"  Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones, of course, gets a serious hunk of it.

Cattrall endeared herself to millions as the super-sexed publicist on Michael Patrick King's HBO show, then in 2008's box office juggernaut film adaptation. With the gals returning in May for more misadventures in love, I'm pleased to introduce Samantha's new love interest: Noah Mills

Hailing from Baltimore, Mills makes his feature film debut in the sequel, playing tough but gorgeous blue-collar type Nicky. It also marked his first ever audition.

"That was the first audition; I put a lot of work in," the 26-year-old said, chatting from his home in New York. When Mills says "work," he means impressing King and "Sex" producer John Melfi, gatekeepers for the legacy of the popular franchise. 

I don't suspect Noah had much trouble -- he's had a major modeling career that spans seven years, with jobs for houses such as John Galliano, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors. His fashion cred alone must have gone miles with the SATC crowd. 

This doesn't mean Mills wasn't a bit nervous going in for scenes with Cattrall -- which consist of a bar-side chat followed by something a lot more intimate, according to rumors ....
