Pregnant Chely Wright cancels gig over health concerns

Pregnant country singer CHELY WRIGHT has cancelled a show in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware next week (begs08Apr13) amid concerns for her health.

The star and her babies were given the all-clear by doctors, but Wright was ordered to rest and axe her travel plans.

A post on the singer's official Facebook.com page reads, "We are sorry to announce that Chely has to cancel her show on April 12 at Rehoboth Beach. As you probably all know, Chely is pregnant with twins. She was admitted to the hospital Monday night for what was, at the time, believed to be preterm labor (sic).

"The twin babies are fine but Chely's doctor has ordered her to rest at home and has put her foot down and said no more travel. She looks forward to coming back and performing in your town when she is able to tour in the future."

Wright is due to give birth in July (13).
