As Michele revealed early last week, she made the decision to step away from the Broadway stage in order to focus on her two-year-old son’s health. In August 2020, Michele and her husband Zandy Reich, welcomed their one and only child into the world, Ever Leo.

“We are at the hospital with our son dealing with a scary health issue that I need to be here for,” Lea initially shared with her fans while announcing she would not be on stage for a few nights. “I’m so sorry. Please send us some love and strength.”

Now, after spending several days in the hospital, Ever Leo is home and recovering. But as Michele announced, Ever Leo is “not out of the woods yet.”

On March 25, Michele returned to Broadway. She shared the news on her Instagram account, revealing that she’s “really happy to be back.”

“It’s been a really long week, and we’re still not out of the woods completely with our son. But he’s headed in a good direction, and we’re really, really grateful,” Lea explained to fans before revealing she also “has a cold just, I think, from not sleeping at all this past week.”
