Mary Cheney pregnant

Mary Cheney, the out lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, is expecting a baby with her longtime partner, Heather Poe, according to a published report Wednesday, December 6 in the Washington Post.

Cheney, 37, was a key aide to her father during the 2004 re-election campaign, the Post noted, and she is now vice president for consumer advocacy at AOL. Cheney and Poe live in Virginia, the newspaper said. Voters there passed a state constitutional amendment last month banning gay marriage and civil unions. According to the Post, state law is unclear on whether Poe could have full legal rights as a parent of Cheney’s child.

Cheney has not spoke to the LGBT press since her father became vice president six years ago. She has been criticized by some gay rights advocates for largely remaining silent on the issue of same-sex marriage. She wrote a book earlier this year in which she revealed she opposes a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

According to the Post, Cheney’s baby is due in late spring.
