Wanda Sykes and Wife Welcome Twins


Published:

It’s been a big couple of weeks for out comic Wanda Sykes. First, she absolutely killed at the White House Annual Correspondents Dinner, and now she’s revealed to People that she’s become the proud parent of twins.

Sykes’ wife, Alex, gave birth to the fraternal twins, a girl named Olivia Lou (6 pounds, 7 ounces) and a boy, Lucas Claude (7 pounds, 9 ounces) on April, 27.

People reports that, according to Sykes’ rep, “All are happy and healthy and at home."

The two married back on Oct. 25, 2008 in California before the passing of Prop. 8 robbed same-sex couples of the right to wed in the state. Shortly after the measure passed, Sykes came out publicly at a Las Vegas gay rights rally.
