AceShowbiz - Lea Michele is finally giving fans a look at her baby boy. The Rachel Berry depicter on "Glee" has treated her fans and followers to a first photo of her son Ever Leo Reich's face in a sweet birthday tribute to her husband Zandy Reich.
Making use of her Instagram account on Sunday, January 23, the 35-year-old actress/singer shared a sweet photo that saw her husband Zandy holding their first child. In the snapshot, baby Ever rocked stylish adult-size Ray-Ban sunglasses, along with a cozy sweater set and coordinating cap, matching his doting dad.
"Greatest man, father, husband and friend. I wake up every day so thankful that you are ours Z," Lea captioned the seaside photo. The "Scream Queens" alum added, "Happy Birthday! Ever and I love you so much. [red heart emoji]."
The photo marked the first time Lea, who was first linked to Zandy in 2017, unveiled her son's face on social media since she gave birth to her first child back in August 2020. Lea welcomed her son a little over a year after tying the knot with her husband in an intimate ceremony in Northern California.
Recently, Lea opened up about her motherhood journey and the health struggles she endured while pregnant with baby Ever. "I had a really intense pregnancy, I had a very intense journey of trying to get pregnant," she told Entertainment Tonight last November.
"We were pregnant during a pandemic dealing with those complications," Lea further shared. "And then my son was born, we were in quarantine for almost a year altogether with him, so it's been pretty wild. We're just now starting to get back into the swing of life again."
Lea also revealed that she suffered from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which is a hormonal disorder common among women of a reproductive age. "We had given up a little bit, my husband and I," she admitted.
"But they say when you give up and when you stop trying is when these little miracles happen. But it wasn't just for nothing," Lea told the outlet. She went on to recall that she and her husband "did work really hard with [her] doctor and in the process of doing all of those surgeries, to help [her] body have a baby, which is all [she's] ever really wanted."
Elsewhere during the interview, Lea confessed that her biggest regret was not being more open with her family's struggles on social media throughout her pregnancy. "I wasn't sharing what we were going through behind closed doors," she said.
"I think a lot of people saw me with my pregnancy and assumed it was fine and it was far from that. And it really was something that I regret," Lea elaborated further. "I wish I would have let people know what we were going through because for other mothers that may have been experiencing the same thing, they could have seen my pictures and it would have made them feel a certain way, and I wish I would have shared more."
