Cynthia Nixon may be feeling the breeze atop her bald head, but her son Max certainly has enough hair for the both of them. Mom and her 13-month-old baby boy stepped out in New York City Thursday afternoon, Max held close by the 45-year-old actress as they maneuvered the city streets, dodging paparazzi on the way.
The pair hailed a cab headed uptown with an older female, dropped her off and continued on their way.
Nixon's locks-lacking look isn't just a spring cut; the actress said goodbye to her fiery red mane when she landed her Broadway role in "Wit" -- which tells the story of a poetry professor who undergoes cancer treatment.
Max is the first child for Nixon and her fiancee, Christine Marinoni.
