Chely Wright and her wife Lauren Blitzer-Wright are expecting twins. The couple, who married in August of 2011, made the announcement during Howard Bragman’s YouTube series, Gwissues, on Wednesday.
“We’re excited to be parents,” Chely, 42, told Bragman. “We hope we don’t mess it up too badly.”
Chely, who is carrying the twins, is due to give birth in July but says “with identical twins they typically have to be delivered a month early,” so she and Lauren, 31, will be planning for their babies to arrive in June.
“We’re anticipating I’ll be as big as a … bus or an A-frame house by around June,” said Chely, who shows off her mini bump in the video announcement.
“When gay couples have babies it’s logistically a little different than when straight people have babies as we all know,” Chely jokes, noting that she’s having evening sickness as opposed to morning sickness.
Chely and Lauren met in 2010 just a couple of weeks after Chely came out publicly and then tied the knot in late August of 2011 at Lauren’s aunt’s house in Connecticut in matching J. Crew wedding dresses.
“We feel like God blessed us with twins,” she added. “We feel our entire relationship has been blessed. We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges.”
