The former Glee actress, Lea Michele, and her husband, Zandy Reich, welcomed their first child, Ever Leo, on Aug. 20.

A source told PEOPLE, "Everyone’s happy and healthy, and they're extremely grateful."

"He's been an easy baby so far," the source added, referring to the couple’s first child.

A source confirmed the 33-year-old mother’s pregnancy in April, adding that she and her husband, 37, had “always wanted to be parents.”

The actress and the entrepreneur and business owner first linked up romantically in July 2017 after being friends for years, and he proposed to Michele the following April.


The New York native announced her engagement on social media by posting a four-carat ring personally designed with Leor Yerushalmi and The Jewelers of Las Vegas. She covered her face in the image and the caption read “Yes.”

The two were married in March 2019 during an intimate ceremony in Northern California which was officiated by the Glee creator, Ryan Murphy. With over 200 family and friends invited, Michele’s Glee friends, Darren Criss, Becca Tobin, and her Scream Queens co-star Emma Roberts were also in attendance.

She told US last July, “I get to be married to my best friend, which is the greatest thing in the entire world.”

“At this point in my life, I feel the most grounded — and happiest — I ever have.”

While the former Glee actress had dated her costars — Matthew Morrison, Cory Monteith, and John Lloyd Young — in the past,-- a source told Life&Style: “She loves that Reich’s not an actor and has no desire to be in the spotlight,” adding “she appreciates how kind Zandy is and she loves that he knows fashion.”


The actress first debuted her growing belly on May 2 with a photo of her in a beautiful floral navy dress holding her belly smiling with the caption “So grateful,” followed by a yellow heart.

Her co-stars commented with extreme support and love. The 29-year-old Roberts responded to her pregnancy announcement: “Crying! Screaming!!! Love you !”

Glee alum Naya Rivera, who had recently died after drowning during her trip to Lake Piru in Southern California with her baby boy Josey, 4, commented at the time of Michele's announcement: “Aww congrats! I love this. You’re going to be a great mommy!”

Since the Emmy nominee’s big announcement, she had posted multiple photos on Instagram showing off her proud baby bump on Mother’s day while posing in a bathing suit mirror selfie, taking a restful break in bed, enjoying hikes and more.

A source told Life&Style that during the broadway star’s pregnancy, her UPenn alum hubby had been “spoiling Lea rotten,” between surprising her “with flowers and romantic dinners at home” and even giving “her massages when she’s feeling tired and achy.”
