Singer-songwriter Chely Wright says she and her wife are overwhelmed by the progress of gay rights.

Wright came out gay in 2010 and married Lauren Blitzer-Wright the following year in Connecticut. The couple welcomed twin boys George Samuel and Everett Joseph earlier this year.

When asked by The Kansas City Star about her new family, Wright responded: “Oh, yes. It really does take a village. Even when it’s two babies and two mothers, you’re outnumbered. But it’s so special and wonderful. I live in a state where my family is as fully recognized as anyone else’s. Sometimes, my wife and I just shake our heads: When we started dating, marriage wasn’t even legal in New York. Now we have two beautiful boys who are going to become best friends forever. It’s such a great treat to start to realize the full potential of the family we’ve always wanted.”
