Congratulations to Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer Wright.
The country singer and her music executive wife welcomed identical twin sons named George Samuel and Everett Joseph on Saturday, May 18 in New York City, PEOPLE reports.
Although they weren’t due until this summer, the twins – who are named after their great-grandfathers – are thriving, the singer’s rep says.
“We are grateful for all the amazing medical care and the love and support of family and friends,” Wright, 42, tells the mag.
The couple, who tied the knot in August 2011, announced their pregnancy news in January.
We feel like God blessed us with twins,” Wright said at the time. “We feel our entire relationship has been blessed. We feel lucky and ready to take on the challenges.”
