Lesbian country star Chely Wright has given birth to twin boys. The singer and her wife, music executive Lauren Blitzer, welcomed the identical siblings in New York on Saturday (18May13) - two months before their due date. Wright, 42, previously revealed that doctors had planned to deliver the tots in June (13), but they were born even earlier than expected - and the new mum is overjoyed at the arrival of healthy sons George Samuel and Everett Joseph, who were named after their great-grandfathers. A statement issued to People.com reads: "We are grateful for all the amazing medical care and the love and support of family and friends." Wright, who 'came out' in 2010, wed Blitzer in 2011. They announced the pregnancy news in January (13).
