Melissa and Tammy-Lynn Expecting


Melissa Etheridge and partner Tammy Lynn Michaels are
expecting twins this autumn after Michaels underwent successful artificial insemination procedure.

The couple issued the following statement:
"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 five 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 women's shelter. However, well wishes are more than welcome."

Etheridge's other two children were from a relationship with Julie Cypher. The sperm donor was David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. She married Tammy Lynn in September of 2003.

So, in other words, the two children with Cypher have hit the genetic jackpot, while Tammy Lynn's kids may have the genes of a serial killer.
