Chely Wright Pregnant With Twins!
Congratulations to Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer-Wright on their baby news ... times two! The country singer, who wed her music industry executive wife in April of 2011, is pregnant with identical twins, due in July.
Sporting a small baby bump, Chely announced the big news on Howard Bragman's online show, "Gwissues," on Wednesday (Jan. 23). "We're excited to be parents, and we hope we don't mess it up too badly!" the "Single White Female" singer joked. "We're anticipating I'll be as big as a bus or an A-frame house by around June.
"We feel like God blessed us with twins. We feel our entire relationship has been blessed," the mom-to-be added. "We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges."
Chely first met Lauren in the spring of 2010, just a few weeks after becoming the first mainstream country artist to publicly out herself as a lesbian. Both LGBT activists, the ladies first bonded over youth advocacy work they did together in New York City, where they now live.
