Wanda Sykes And Wife Have Babies And Neil Patrick Harris Will Host The Tonys

I love stories like this. It only reminds me of how wonderful gay people are and how much love they have in their hearts. You know, like “normal” people. Oh wait, they are normal.

Anywhoo, funny lady Wanda Sykes and her wife Alex are now proud parents of twins. Alex gave birth to their son and daughter on April 27th; they are the first children for the couple, who wed last October.

Lucas Claude weighed 7lbs 9oz at birth and was 20-inches long, while Olivia Lou was a little smaller at 6lbs 7oz and 19-inches long.

Sykes’s rep says, “All are happy and healthy and at home.”

In other wonderful gay people news, Neil Patrick Harris has accepted the honor of hosting the 2009 Tony Awards on Sunday June 7th at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

“The discipline of live theatre — doing the same perfect thing night after night, eight times a week — never ceases to amaze me,” the 35-year-old How I Met Your Mother star said in a press release. “I’m truly honored to have been chosen as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Tony Awards, and I hope to help provide a first-class evening for all.”
