(Newser) – Wanda Sykes is the talk of Washington after her gig at the White House correspondents dinner, but it turns out she's also a mom of newborn twins. Sykes' wife, Alex, gave birth to daughter Olivia Lou and son Lucas Claude on April 27. "All are happy and healthy and at home," said Sykes' publicist. The twins are the first children for the couple, who married in October. Sykes publicly came out at a same-sex marriage rally in November.
