A representative for Wanda Sykes has confirmed that the actress' lesbian wife named Alex has given birth to twin babies in April.
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.
