And just like her character was in the former hit television show Glee, actor and singer Lea Michele is pregnant. For those who were fans of Fox’s Glee, many may remember the final episode of the series, which showed Michele’s character, Rachel Berry, acting as a surrogate for Blaine and Kurt in the year 2020.
Well, fast forward several years, and in that actual year 2020, Michele is expecting her first child with her husband of one year, entrepreneur and business owner Zandy Reich. The couple got married on March 9, 2019.
While the soon-to-be parents haven’t personally opened up about the news of their expanding family, a source confirmed the pregnancy to People. “They’ve always wanted to be parents,” the source said.
Lea Michele Pregnant With First Child
Michele and Reich first went public with their relationship in 2017 before they got engaged on April 28, 2018. They were reportedly friends before getting involved romantically. To announce their decision to spend the rest of their lives together, Michele shared a photo of her gorgeous engagement ring with a simple caption that read, “yes.”
Following their wedding, Michele and Reich told People that they “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.”
Michele began her acting career as a young child star on broadway. She later moved on to television and movies after landing the lead role as Rachel Berry on Glee. Reich is currently the president of a clothing company known as AYR.
The couple is known for being rather private when it comes to their relationship, so it’s unclear if the soon-to-be mom and dad will open up about their pregnancy before he or she arrives.
