Wanda Sykes, the openly gay actress and comedienne, adds "mother" to her skill set. The New Adventures of Old Christine star who roasted President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents Dinner last week, and her wife Alex, welcomed twins on April 27, reports Usmagazine.com.
"Alex gave birth to the couple's first children, daughter Olivia Lou and son Lucas Claude. Olivia weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz., and was 19 inches long. Lucas was born at 7 lbs., 9 oz., and was an inch taller than his sister. 'All are happy and healthy and at home,' Sykes' rep told Us."
Sykes met her partner in 2006 and the two married on Oct. 25, 2008 in California. Last November, the actress publicly came out at an anti-Proposition 8 rally in Las Vegas. Over the weekend, Sykes became the first openly gay person to emcee the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. FOX News and conservative talking heads have expressed outrage over her comedy routine.
