‘Glee’ Star Lea Michele & Husband Zandy Reich Expecting First Child
The Glee star posted the photo of her in a blue maxi dress, gazing down lovingly at her stomach on Saturday. “So grateful,” the caption reads. This is the first public post made by the actress herself, confirming the pregnancy.
Michele’s co-stars from Glee and Scream Queens commented their congratulations.
“Crying! Screaming!!! Love you ! ♥️” wrote Emma Roberts.
“Aww congrats! I love this. You’re going to be a great mommy! 🤗” wrote Naya Rivera.
“I’m so excited!!” wrote Kristin Chenoweth.
Michele and her business owner husband have been married just over a year, and have been in a public relationship since 2017.
Fans were also very excited about the news, and tweeted lots of Glee references. Some even pointed out that Michele is pregnant at the same time as her Glee character Rachel Berry. The show’s finale was set five years in the future — 2020 — and showed Rachel as a surrogate for Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss).
