Country music singer Chely Wright and her fiancee, gay rights activist Lauren Blitzer, say they plan to have a traditional wedding and children.

The women announced on Wednesday that they'll marry on August 20 in Connecticut, one of five states where gay marriage is legal.

“It's been a really exciting time,” Wright told E! Online. “We fit so well. And the best part is that our families go so beautifully together.”

Wright met her future wife through her work as a board member of Faith in America, a non-profit that counters “the bigotry, prejudice and hostility toward the LGBT community being sold to the public for several decades under the guise of religious belief and religious teaching.” Blitzer is the group's development director.

“We want a family,” Wright added. “The benefit of being out is I get to have everything that everyone else has.”

Wright also said the two women will wear Jose Dias-designed white gowns for their big day.

Last year, Wright told People magazine that she's a lesbian. She went on to describe her life as a closeted celebrity in her memoir Like Me.

Wish Me Away, a film documenting her coming out gay experience, will premiere on April 15 at the Nashville Film Festival.

Wright has said that her decision to come out hurt her career.
