Lesbians Cynthia Nixon & Christine Marinoni Make a Baby

cynthia nixonWell, kids, this is where Sex and the City gets you -- actress Cynthia Nixon, aka Miranda from SATC, and her partner Christine Marinoni welcomed a baby boy yesterday. Add this bundle of joy to the list of same-sex couples recently expanding their families.

I'm so excited! I think we have a same-sex couple baby boom!

Let's see. We've got Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, who welcomed boy-girl twins, Harper and Gideon, last October. And none other than Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish are on the list, too. They had the best Christmas gift delivered when son Zachary was born on December 25, 2010.

Christine gave birth to Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni on February 7 (we love that name!), and according to reports, everyone is doing fine. This makes three kids in the Nixon-Marinoni household -- Cynthia has Samantha, 14, and Charles, 8, from a previous relationship.

Who could be next and keep this trend going? Maybe Ellen and Portia? Perhaps Iron Chef Cat Cora and her partner Jennifer will expand again?

We're sending big congrats to Max's proud mommies!
