Mary Cheney, ignited a media frenzy when she announced that she was
pregnant. Mary Cheney has been tight-lipped about the details, but
the Vice-President made
this announcement in the Washington Post last month:
I’m delighted I’m about to be a grandparent for the
sixth time,” said Dick Cheney. “I’m looking forward to the arrival
of a new grandson.” The veep confirmed that the baby is due next
month; this will be the first child for Mary and partner Heather
Poe, and the third grandson for the Cheneys.
So, the baby should be born within the next two weeks. And once
again, LGBTQ parented families will be put into the national
spotlight. Stay tuned for the very latest. In the meantime, read
of Family Pride’s Executive Director, Jennifer Chrisler, in TIME.
We wish Mary Cheney and her partner, Heather Poe, the very best –
and hope that they enjoy these final hours of peace and quiet!
