Gay country singer Chely Wright is making plans to start a family after she marries her fiancee this summer (11).
The Single White Female hitmaker, who made history last year (10) when she became the first country star to 'come out' as a lesbian, announced her engagement to girlfriend Lauren Blitzer on Wednesday (06Apr11).
Wright insists she can't wait to get married - so she can become a mother.
She tells, "It's been a really exciting time. We fit so well. And the best part is that our families go so beautifully together.
"We want a family. The benefit of being out is I get to have everything that everyone else has. I do want a family and I do want traditional things. I just had no idea it would happen so quickly. I feel like it was a blessing from God."
The couple plans to tie the knot in August (11).
