Glee alum Lea Michele and husband Zandy Reich‘s baby’s name is so unique. The couple announced their son’s moniker on Wednesday, August 26. “ForEver grateful for this true blessing,” the actress, 33, captioned a photo her little one’s feet, seemingly confirming his name is Ever.
By definition, “ever” means always, forever or eternally. How special! On August 20, Life & Style confirmed that Lea and her businessman beau, 37, welcomed their new bundle of joy. “Everyone’s happy and healthy, and they’re extremely grateful. He’s been an easy baby so far,” an insider told Us Weekly at the time.
Life & Style confirmed the new mom was expecting her first child on April 27. Soon after, Lea opened up about the baby news herself. On May 2, she posted her first baby bump photo. “So grateful,” she captioned a snap of her cradling her tummy.
Lea and Zandy were first romantically linked in July 2017, but the couple started off as friends. By April 2018 the two were engaged and by March 2019, they were married.
Clearly, opposites attract when it comes to these two because a source told Life & Style exclusively, “Sheand has no desire to be in the spotlight,” they noted, adding that “she appreciates how kind Zandy is, and she loves that he knows fashion.”
Prior to the birth of their son, Lea received backlash for her alleged past racist remarks to her former castmates. After sharing a post in support of Black Lives Matter, the Scream Queens alum was quickly criticized by Yvette Nicole Brown, Alex Newell, Abigail Breslin and many more.
In her apology, the Broadway star claimed she didn’t “remember” making the hurtful statements alleged by her costars and “never judged” others by their race.
“Whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused me to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior,” she wrote in a lengthy statement on Instagram on June 3. “One of the most important lessons of the last few weeks is that we need to take time to listen and learn about other people’s perspectives and any role we have played or anything we can do to help address the injustices that they face.”
We’re sure Lea will be passing on these lessons to her little one.
