Country star Chely Wright reveals baby news

Country singer Chely Wright and her wife, Lauren Blitzer-Wright, announced on Wednesday that they are expecting twins.

The news was revealed by the couple on the web show "Gwissues," hosted by famed publicist Howard Bragman. "Coming to you live this summer, probably sometime in June," Blitzer-Wright said about the babies, which will be carried by Wright.

"They're due in July, but with identical twins you typically have to deliver a month early," Wright said. "So we are anticipating that I'll be as big as a bus, or an A-frame house by around June," she added.

Wright and Blitzer-Wright -- who joked to Bragman that they are excited to be having twins but "hope we don't mess it up too badly" -- married in Connecticut in August 2011.
