In January, Chely Wright announced she was expecting identical twins with her wife Lauren Blitzer-Wright — and on Thursday she revealed their sex, with some convincing that involved a plate of French fries.
“We’re having two little boys,” Wright, 42, told Howard Bragman when he guest-hosted on Joy Behar’s Say Anything segment on CurrentTV.
“They’re healthy babies. They’re getting fat, thanks to my help. Everything looks good.”
Wright, who says she’s already gained 30 lbs., explains, “Most of it is French fries… It’s French fries and some Dunkin’ Donuts. But who’s keeping track?”
Those delectable potato treats are what Bragman used to get the musician to share the sex of her babies.
“We’ve known for a while that they were little boys, but we were keeping that private,” Wright said following the big reveal. “But since you offered me French fries …”
Feeling “great” currently, Wright went on to say, “The first trimester was a typical first trimester — a little tired, a little sick to my stomach.”
In honor of Wright’s profession, Bragman had a little gift for her unborn sons.
“We want your boys to be well-versed in country music … so we got you guys some beautiful guitars,” Bragman says, handing over two toys.
“This is great,” Wright replies, telling Bragman her kids will be born in June. “I’m not sure if they’ll write country music or show tunes.”
