Identical twin sons were born Saturday (May 18) in New York City. Their mommies named them George Samuel and Everett Joseph, after their great-grandfathers. The boys weren't due until July, but it's not unusual for twins to come early. Everyone is healthy and doing fine.

"We are grateful for all the amazing medical care and the love and support of family and friends," says Wright.

Wright and Blitzer met in 2010 after Wright made headlines when she became an openly-gay country singer. The two were married in August 2011.
