Country singer Chely Wright and wife Lauren Blitzer Wright welcomed two identical twin boys on Saturday May 18, Us Weekly confirmed. The boys are named George Samuel and Everett Joseph. Wright, 42 and Lauren, 31, said the boys are “thriving.”

Wright came out publicly in 2010 and met Lauren two weeks later. In an interview with the Today show, the singer said. “Country music has been described as being about God and family and country. And for some reason, people think that you can’t be gay and have those beliefs. That’s why I have to do this. I have to be the one to step forward.”
