When there’s smoke there’s fire – this was proven true by Lea Michele’s pregnancy after rumors began circulating days before her confirmation. The Glee alum’s announcement is as fabulous as her character in the now-defunct musical-drama series.
It all started when People cited a source claiming the 33-year-old and her husband Zandy Reich were expecting. The insider added that this was a dream of the soon-to-be parents, which got everyone excited.
In an Instagram post, the actress proudly showed her baby bump by cradling her tummy. Clad in a blue floral dress, Lea blended nicely in her garden and it made her look like a goddess.
The couple was first linked in 2017 and it was then revealed that they were longtime friends. The Scream Queens star was pictured enjoying a stroll with the AYR clothing company president in New York City.
The entrepreneur popped the big question to his girlfriend in April 2018 with an unmissable 4-carat radiant-cut ring that Zandy himself worked on with The Jewelers of Las Vegas and Leor Yerushalmi. Of course, she said yes.
Apparently, her fiancé didn’t only secure the approval of her friends and family, but also Ryan Murphy, Lea’s close pal and workmate. They have worked many times in the past, including in Glee and Scream Queens, both of which he produced.
The pair got married intimately in Northern California with 200 guests witnessing the exchange of vows. Also present at the event were Lea’s co-workers, Becca Tobin, Darren Criss, and Emma Roberts.
The ceremony, which was officiated by Ryan, saw Lea in a stunning strapless silk wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier. Two weeks later, they flew to a tropical destination for their honeymoon.
Another Good News
The Broadway thespian isn’t the only one who announced her journey to motherhood. Model Gigi Hadid also confirmed that she and boyfriend Zayn Malik are expecting their first bundle of joy.
Shortly after uploading celebratory photos on Instagram for her 25th birthday, Gigi was hounded with rumors. Days later, she and her mom Yolanda revealed that the speculations were correct and divulged that the soon-to-be mom is five months pregnant.
Once they told the truth, well-wishers flooded the couple’s social media accounts. The pair also received an adorable present from famous jeweler George Khalife: a couple 14-karat bracelets with an evil eye.
The jeweler shared he felt so excited about the news and as a nod to their Middle Eastern roots, he decided to send an evil eye accessory – in their culture, this symbol is believed to be effective in protecting people against negativity and jealousy.
