Singer Chely Wright is expecting twins with her wife Lauren Blitzer-Wright, confirming the news on Howard Bragman’s YouTube show ‘Gwissues.’ The couple said on Wednesday (January 23, 2013) they are expecting identical twins sometime in June!
“They are due in July, but with identical twins you typically have to deliver a month early,” said singer Wright, who is carrying the twins. “When gay couples have babies, it's logistically a little different than when straight people have babies, as we all know,” she added. “It's been an [amazing] experience.”
Blitzer-Wright, whom Wright met just two weeks after coming out in 2010, said, “Even learning about the reproductive systems and how that works … you learn so many things.” The couple married in a homespun ceremony in Connecticut in August 2011. “We're excited to be parents. We hope we don't mess it up too badly,” Wright added.
Wright released her seventh studio album Lifted Off The Ground in April 2010, to coincide with the release of her first memoir Like Me: Confessions Of A Heartland Country Singer. It peaked at No.200 on the Billboard Top, err, 200.
