Chely Wright and Wife are Expecting Twins this Summer
It's been about three years since she came out and she and her wife could not be more excited about the babies.
Chely Wright married her wife, Lauren Blitzer-Wright in the summer of 2011. The idendentical twins are due in July, but Chely says that she will likely give birth to the new additions sometime in June.
Wright, once a country music golden girl and the 1995 Top New Female Vocalist award winner, received a lot of ridicule when she came out (in 2010) and says she has not been invited to a musical event since.
“When gay couples have babies it’s logistically a little different than when straight people have babies as we all know,” Chely said. “We feel our entire relationship has been blessed. We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges. We’re excited to be parents and we hope we don’t mess it up too badly!”
