Wanda Sykes and her lesbian wife, simply known as Alex, have become parents to twin babies. According to People, which is the first to report that matter, Alex gave birth to a baby boy and a baby girl on April 27.

The weekly publication obtains a confirmation from Wanda's representative, who says daughter Olivia Lou weighed in at 6 lbs., 7 oz., and was 19-inches long. Son Lucas Claude, meanwhile, was born at 7 lbs., 9 oz., and was 20-inches long. "All are happy and healthy and at home," the representative tells People.

Wanda Sykes and Alex first met in 2006, and they then got married in October last year. However, it wasn't until the following month at a same-sex marriage rally regarding Proposition 8 in Las Vegas that Wanda publicly came out as a lesbian. The newborn infants are the couple's first children.

i think this is appalling i mean i lovee wanda as an actress...but raising two kids with "two moms" just is not right in my eyes

@ David, I totally agree - that was one lame headline. If you are a woman and you have a wife, it is most obvious you are a lesbian. To use lesbian and wife in the same line in that manner is being repetitive

"Some of my best friends are lesbians...so I'm not some gay-hating bitch. But I think Wanda's lying" SO that makes you think you know how ALL lesbians should be? you are one smart woman...

How the hell did they have fricken kids if they are both women? Gay marriage should not be alowed! Same thing with ellen degenres. Even if you are gay you shouldn't be able to have kids!!

Some of my best friends are lesbians...so I'm not some gay-hating bitch. But I think Wanda's lying about being a lesbian. Bi-sexual maybe...but not a lesbian. I don't buy it. I think it's for publicity.

I love Wando! Congrats. I laughed when I read the headline of this story.. "Wanda's lesbian wife..." HA, HA. I think we knoe she's a lesbian, it's understood. You can just say, Wanda's wife. But I guess that's not juicy or shocking enough. Thumbs down to ACESHOWBIZ for that weak headline.
