Cynthia Nixon says that motherhood was always something she 'was going to do'

Cynthia Nixon and her Sex and The City character ‘Miranda’ have one thing in common — parenthood. The 42-year-old mother of two opened up about some of the differences between her and Miranda’s parenting style in the latest issue of Parents.

Being a mother was something that I always knew I was going to do. I went into parenthood thinking, ‘This is something I’m really up for.’ For Miranda, it was very daunting. As a full-time working mother, Miranda is in a situation that a lot of parents deal with: she’s at an office, and a lot of the day-to-day child care is done by somebody she hires. I’m very lucky in that I have long periods where I don’t work, and I can take my kids to school and make them dinner and just be around.

Cynthia has two children, Charles, 5 ½, and Samantha, 11 ½, with ex-boyfriend Danny Mozes. Besides actively promoting her new film, Cynthia has been busy rallying to oppose funding cuts at her kids schools.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
