Steve Brady (David Eigenberg) and Miranda meet during the second season when Miranda is waiting for Carrie at the bar where Steve works. Although Miranda simply sees Steve as a one-night stand after they meet, Steve senses a strong connection, and he asks to see her again. Miranda refuses at first, but they become a couple after she realizes her strong attraction for Steve. The couple’s difference in economic status creates tension in their relationship, and they eventually break up. However, they remain on friendly terms, often leading to a sexual relationship between the two. After Steve loses one of his testicles to cancer, Miranda sympathizes with him, and ends up sleeping with him so that he can feel like a “man,” so-to-speak. This results in her pregnancy. She initially decides to have an abortion and to keep Steve from ever finding out that she was pregnant. At the clinic, she changes her mind, and decides to keep the baby. Miranda tells Steve she is pregnant and will take on full responsibility, including raising the child and providing all the related finances, but Steve can “visit” whenever he wants. Steve later proposes to Miranda, which prompts her to yell at him that she doesn’t want to marry him, to which Steve responds that he doesn’t really want to marry her. Miranda gives birth to Brady Hobbes (an homage to their respective surnames), and the two try to raise him together as platonic partners. Miranda eventually realizes that she loves Steve, but when she attempts to admit her feelings for him, she discovers he is now seeing another woman, Debbie. Eventually, at Brady’s first birthday party, Miranda ends up blurting out her love for Steve and, to her delight and surprise, Steve admits that he, too, loves Miranda, and that she is “the one.” They kiss, and within three weeks, they are back together; they remain together for the rest of the series, eventually getting married and purchasing a townhouse in Brooklyn for their growing family.
In And Just Like That, Miranda meets Che, a non-binary person who works with Carrie. She and Che get off to a rough start but eventually form a friendship and later relationship. Miranda leaves Steve for Che and is thrilled about starting this new chapter. When Che gets an opportunity in California, Miranda decides to follow for the summer.
In Sex and the City: The Movie, Miranda is still married to Steve, and they are living in Brooklyn with their son Brady, who is now five years old. We learn that she is still employing Magda. Sadly, we also learn that Steve’s mother, Mary, is living in a where to find a sugar daddy in dallas home following her stroke, as she now has memory loss (it is hinted that she also has Alzheimer’s). At one of their coffee dates, Miranda tells the girls that she and Steve have not had sex in six months, and she soon learns that Steve slept with another woman one time out of frustration. Although Steve begs for forgiveness, Miranda insists on their splitting up, and she moves to the Lower East Side (LES). After several talks with her friends, Miranda and Steve go to couples’ therapy and plan to meet on the Brooklyn Bridge in two weeks if they want to forgive and forget what had happened and start again, which they do.
Miranda is a main character in the revival series. She is getting her masters in Human Rights at Columbia University to be able to empower and help women in the future. She becomes friends with one of her professors, Nya Wallace.
