Cynthia and Christine welcomed son Max in 2011, and are raising him in New York. The Sex and the City star is also mum to older children, Samuel and Charles, who she shares with ex-partner, Danny Mozes.

In 2018, the 54-year-old revealed her oldest son Samuel - who goes by the nickname Seph - had come out as transgender, and paid a heartfelt tribute to him as they celebrated the 14th Annual Trans Day of Action in June that year.

During the pandemic, Cynthia and her family have been making the most of spending quality time together at home.

The actress has had an exciting year work-wise too, following the success of Ratched in 2020, in which she played Gwendolyn Briggs, the love interest of Nurse Ratched, played by Sarah Paulson.

In early 2021, meanwhile, it was announced that Cynthia, along with co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis, would be starring in a reboot of Sex and the City.

Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the hit series, will not be joining her co-stars in the upcoming sequel.
