Two bundles of joy are on the way for country music singer Chely Wright and her wife, Sony Music executive, Lauren Blitzer-Wright. Wright will be carrying the twins.

The pair broke their happy news to Howard Bragman, Vice Chairman of Reputation.com and longtime celebrity crisis counselor, on his show "Gwissues," a YouTube show which airs on the brand new online "Gwist.tv" network.

Wright, 42, raised her profile into the public spotlight when she came out of the closet as a lesbian in May 2010; the first country music star to publicly acknowledge his or her sexual orientation. "There had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality," she told People at the time. "I wasn't going to be the first." Bragman lead Wright through the complicated coming out publicity journey, which included a high profile appearance on the ‘Today” show.

Wright and Blitzer-Wright, 31, were married in Connecticut in August of 2011, following their engagement a few months earlier, less than a year after Wright came out.

Chely has even more to celebrate this year. She was just nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Documentary for her production with First Run Features, “Chely Wright: Wish Me Away.”
