It seems everyone is baby crazy these days: Melissa Etheridge is cancer-free, hotter than ever, and she and spouse Tammy Lynn Michaels are expecting. TWINS. From MelissaEthridge.com:
We are thrilled to announce that Tammy is pregnant, and expecting our twins sometime around this fall. To answer the obvious question: we used an anonymous donor from a bank. These are our first two babies conceived together, but not our first time mothering together. For the past 5 years, we have been parenting two children, from a previous time in Melissa’s life. The twins will be a joyful addition to our loving home. We are a blessed family, and ask that no gifts be sent. Any gifts we receive we will donate to a local womenÂ¹s shelter. However, well wishes are more than welcome!
Have a great summer, everyone!
Peace, Melissa and Tammy Etheridge
We’re quite pleased things are going so well for The Lady Etheridge, and we hope she’ll release another album soon.
Speaking of Melissa’s music: we’re still shocked that everyone on planet Earth has not seen her 2005 Grammpys performance, a tribute to Janis Joplin sung with such power that even the gangsta rappers in the audience gave her a standing-o. So we linked it here. Let the (several minutes long) video load for a while before you watch, so you can see it without all the download starts-and-stops, it’s several minutes long. We loves.
