Country singer Chely Wright is pregnant with identical twins.
The “Shut Up and Drive” singer and her wife, Lauren Blitzer, announced they will be expecting twins in July.
Chely and Lauren, 31, made their big announcement on Howard Bragman’s YouTube.com show “Gwissues” on Wednesda, showing off her small baby bump.
The couple revealed, “We’re excited to be parents and we hope we don’t mess it up too badly!”
Wright, 42, told Bragman that the identical twins are due in July, but will probably be delivered a month early.
Chely Wright joked, “We’re anticipating I’ll be as big as a … bus or an A-frame house by around June”.
The country singer admitted she’s suffering from morning sickness, added, “We feel like God blessed us with twins. We feel our entire relationship has been blessed. We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges.”
Chely came out to her family in 2004, but didn’t publicly announce she was a lesbian until 2007, when she appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show. She announced her engagement to LGBT rights activist Lauren Blitzer in 2011.
The couple married on August 20, 2011 in a private ceremony on a country estate in Connecticut. Wright and Blitzer were married by both a rabbi and a reverend.
