Lea Michele’s Growing Baby Bump: See the Best Photos of the Pregnant Actress

As Lea Michele gets closer and closer to her due date, her baby bump gets bigger and bigger! The actress is just months away from becoming a mom for the first time, and her pregnancy photos prove her excitement.

Life & Style confirmed the Glee alum was expecting her first child with husband Zandy Reich on April 27. It wasn’t long before Lea opened up about the baby news herself. On May 2, she posted her first baby bump photo. “So grateful,” she captioned the pic, in which she cradled her tummy.

The actress’ friends flooded the comments and sent their well-wishes. Ashley Tisdale gushed, “OMG OMG.” Emma Roberts wrote, “Crying! Screaming!! Love you!”

The brunette beauty and the businessman tied the knot in March 2019 after two years of dating. They say opposites attract and that seems to be the case for these two.

Lea “loves that [Zandy is] not an actor and has no desire to be in the spotlight,” a source exclusively told Life & Style in 2017, adding that “she appreciates how kind Zandy is, and she loves that he knows fashion.”

The actress gushes about Zandy any chance she gets, including their first wedding anniversary. “One year ago we were driving up north for our wedding weekend!” she wrote on Instagram. “Now we are off on an adventure to celebrate! I love you Z.”

And now, they’re on a totally different adventure. The couple are doing everything they can to prepare for the bundle of joy’s arrival. Lea and Zandy are “in the process of decorating” their baby’s nursery, a second source exclusively told Life & Style. “It’s a joint project!”

The mom-to-be gets to put her good taste to use. She “loves interior design and put together a nursery vision board weeks ago,” the insider added. “She’s been keeping herself busy shopping online for a crib, cute cushions, lamps and chairs. [She] wants the nursery to be white with a touch of color.”

Unfortunately, her pregnancy hasn’t been all shopping and celebration. Not long after announcing the news, several of Lea’s former costars accused her of bullying and other inappropriate behavior on set. She finally broke her silence on the situation on June 3, writing, “whether it was my privileged position and perspective that caused my to be perceived as insensitive or inappropriate at times or whether it was just my immaturity and me just being unnecessarily difficult, I apologize for my behavior and any pain which I have caused. I am a couple of months from becoming a mother and I know I need to keep working to better myself.”

Things only got tougher when her former costar Naya Rivera tragically died in a drowning incident on Lake Piru in California on July 8. Three days later, Lea deleted her Twitter account and stayed silent on social media until posting a black and white photo of Naya in tribute. Though the two had a tough past, they became friendly after the show. Before her death, Naya even commented on Lea’s pregnancy reveal, writing “Aww, congrats! I love this. You’re going to be a great mommy!”
