Cynthia Nixon reveals her child has come out as transgender


In the post, she mentioned how proud she was of Samuel, who goes by the nickname Seph, and that she "salutes" him.

Nixon had Samuel, previously known as a girl named Samantha, with ex Mozes, and also son Charles, 15.

But now, the Sex and the City star and NY governor candidate, 52, has shared the trans news on Instagram on Friday about her boy, known as Seph.

The actress captioned the post: "Happy #Pride weekend!"

Sex and the City may have been off our screens for a very long time now but we'll never forget the iconic quotes from Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda and Carrie.

Nixon accompanied Friday's announcement with an Instagram photo of herself with her son in his cap and gown at his graduation earlier this month from the University of Chicago.

Cynthia is well-known for keeping her personal life extremely private and rarely speaking about her children so this latest public show of love comes as a sweet surprise. She is married to activist Christine Marinoni.

In addition to participating in LGBTQ advocacy for more than 10 years, Nixon herself has publicly identified as bisexual and was honored with the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award in February 2018.

She was rumoured to be starring in the much-anticipated movie Sex and the City 3, alongside Sarah-Jessica Parker - but recent reports claim the film may never happen at all.
