Lea Michele and husband Zandy Reich welcome first child as Glee star gives birth to ‘healthy’ baby boy ‘Ever Leo’

GLEE actress Lea Michele and her husband Zandy Reich have welcomed their first child, a “healthy” baby boy.

The 33-year-old gave birth to her son on August 20, according to People, naming him Ever Leo.

A source close to the couple reported that everything went well and both mom and baby are doing well.

“Everyone’s happy and healthy, and they’re extremely grateful,” the source told the outlet.

The insider added: “He’s been an easy baby so far.”

Earlier this year, Lea and her husband Zandy Reich took to Instagram to announce that they are expecting.

The 33-year-old posted a picture cradling her bump with the caption, “So grateful.”

Zandy, 37, is the president of women’s fashion brand AYR, which stands for All Year Round.

The couple had been dating for a year when he proposed.

However, it has been rumored they were friends for several years before they began seeing each other.

They tied the knot in March 2019 in North Carolina, celebrating with over 200 family members.

Aside from focusing on her pregnancy, Lea has also dealt with the recent loss of her Glee co-star Naya Rivera.

Naya was found dead last month at Lake Piru in California after a five-day search as Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Naya’s identity using dental records.

The singer shared three black and white pictures including a behind-the-scenes snap of Naya from what appeared to be on the set of the Fox show as a tribute.

Lea also included a snap of her late boyfriend Cory Monteith holding a bouquet of flowers.

Cory, who played Finn Hudson, a quarterback and glee club student, passed away in 2013.

Lea has also been dealing with harsh brushback after actress Samantha Ware accused her of making her life “a living hell” on the set of Glee.

Samantha tweeted that Lea said she would “s**t in my wig.”

She later told Variety that Lea threatened her job “and said she would call (show creator) Ryan Murphy in to come and fire me.”

Samantha played Jane Hayward in 2015 on the sixth season of the FOX musical series which centered around Rachel Berry, played by Lea.

Her accusations came after Lea paid tribute to George Floyd on Twitter.

Lea would go on to apologize and claim that while she does not remember acting this way towards Samantha, 28, that is “not really the point.”

She continued: “What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people.

“One of the most important lessons of the last few weeks is that we need to take the time to listen and learn about other people’s perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face.”

Lea added: “While I don’t remember ever making this specific statement and I have never judged others by their background or color of their skin, that’s not really the point… “What matters is that I clearly acted in ways which hurt other people.

“Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and for any pain which I have caused.”
