Chely WrightGay country singer Chely Wright is making plans to start a family after she marries her fiancee this summer.

The Single White Female hit-maker, who made history last year when she became the first country star to 'come out' as a lesbian, announced her engagement to girlfriend Lauren Blitzer on Wednesday.

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.
