(NEW YORK) — Country singer Chely Wright and wife Lauren Blitzer-Wright are adding two new members to their family this summer.
The couple said Wednesday that they are expecting identical twins sometime in June. They made the announcement on Howard Bragman’s YouTube show, “Gwissues.”
“They are due in July, but with identical twins you typically have to deliver a month early,” said 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,” Wright said. “It’s been an [amazing] experience.”
Blitzer-Wright said it’s also been an educational experience.
“Even learning about the reproductive systems and how that works … you learn so many things,” Blitzer-Wright said.
The couple married in August 2011.
“We’re excited to be parents. We hope we don’t mess it up too badly,” Wright said.
