The 55-year-old chef, who dated the politician from 2005 until they went their separate ways in 2019, reportedly grew a close bond with Cuomo's three daughters Michaela, 23, Cara and Mariah, both 26, throughout their 14 year relationship.
A source told the New York Post, "Sandra has spent her whole life advocating for women, and her thoughts are obviously with these women who have bravely brought these issues to light."
"She is a woman's woman and a mother first and foremost and her love is with Andrew's daughters, that's the thing that she truly is concerned about," the source went on to say.
The New York Governor and the New York Times Best Selling author first met in 2005 at a swanky Hamptons cocktail party. In 2006, Lee moved her life from California to New York to be with the 63-year-old politician. In 2019, the pair split and the Food Network star moved back to California.
