We are no doubt jumping for Glee over here at Clevver with the exciting news that Lea Michele is expecting her first child. Hey everyone, it’s Sussan Mourad here delivering all this baby news. I guess what happens in social distancing doesn’t stay in social distancing! Before we dive in be sure to hit that subscribe button so you never to miss an update. Alright, so if you need to be caught up on Lea and Zandy Reich’s love story, well you’re in for a treat. The two found love back in 2017 and just one year later the two were engaged, and we all know that you’ve seen that giant rock that is Lea’s engagement ring.
The two made their commitment to one another in a beautiful ceremony in March of last year in Napa Valley, California where Lea shared quote, “We are so excited to be married and grateful to be surrounded by our friends and family. And most of all, we’re so happy to spend the rest of our lives together.” Now, the happy couple is about to become a happy family of three! While there has been no word from the parents-to-be themselves, an insider with People revealed “They’ve always wanted to be parents.” Fans on Twitter went NUTS over the exciting news that Lea was having a baby! One fan just couldn’t contain their excitement writing,
“I LOG OFF FOR A FEW HOURS TO COME BACK TO LEA BEING A MOTHER!!! DO YALL KNOW HOW LONG WEVE WAITED FOR THIS DAY??? IM CRYING!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS LOVE, IM SO HAPPY FOR BOTH OF YOU LeaMichele.”
Another fan made a remarkable connection to Lea and her famous character on Glee writing, “Both Lea Michele and her “Glee” character Rachel Berry were pregnant in the year 2020.” Before we continue, be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below about Lea’s exciting news. We just couldn’t be happier for this growing little family. Now, the road to love hasn’t been an easy one after the world found itself at a standstill when we lost beloved actor Cory Monteith and Lea’s former boyfriend. Lea and Cory began dating back in 2012 and when it was revealed that Corey was entering rehab, Lea stood by his side. And just before the actors were set to return to set for season five of Glee, Corey was sadly found dead at the age of 31 in a hotel room in Vancouver.
After his death, Lea made her love for Corey permanent and got a tattoo in his honor for quote “her quarterback” as a way to carry him with her forever. And of course, this news also got some fans on Twitter emotional as they remembered their favorite football player with one fan writing, “LEA MICHELE IS PREGNANT!?!? Y’all i’m crying because i feel like this baby got Cory as a Guardian angel….” Another wrote, “I already know lea michele is going to name her baby cory and she should be allowed to do that.” One fan even went as far as calling it the year of the gleeks writing, “Lea Michele got pregnant this year for the gleeks.” And that it is. And we’ve gotta admit, Corey for a baby name would be a sweet sentiment for her guardian angel. It has no doubt been a journey for Lea after revealing last year that she was diagnosed with PCOS around the time of her 30th birthday. PCOS is a hormonal disorder that’s common among women that can make it hard to conceive.
But, it seems as though Lea has found a way to manage it all with her demanding work schedule. During an interview last year she shared,
“I think for me because I’ve always been such a hard worker, it’s always hard for me to stop whenever I’m not feeling well or listen to my body and not push too hard. I always have to remind myself that when I’m feeling my best, that’s when I can do my best. Even if that means slowing down sometimes.”
