She was quoted as saying, “We shop and cook and raise children....We both pitch in. I’m in love with her because she’s her. If she were a man, would I be in love with her? I don’t know.”
After ending her 15-year relationship with Danny Mozes – the father of her two children – Nixon started dating Marinoni in 2003.
The pair now raise Nixon’s children Samantha, 11, and six-year-old Charles together in Brooklyn.
Talking about their initial reaction to her female lover, she said: "They were fine. My son was very little (when it happened), but my daughter has a gay uncle (and her godmothers) are lesbians."
