LOS ANGELES, May 13 (UPI) -- Wanda Sykes's publicist said the U.S. actress and comedian's wife Alex has given birth to twins -- a son and a daughter.
"All are happy and healthy and at home," Sykes's representative told Usmagazine.com Wednesday.
The babies were born April 27 and are named Olivia Lou and Lucas Claude, the entertainment news Web site said.
Wanda and Alex Sykes married last October in California before Proposition 8 was passed, overturning a state Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.
Sykes is best known for her work on TV's "The Chris Rock Show" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine," as well as in the movies "Monster-in-Law," "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" and "Over the Hedge."
