The baby boy was born on Thursday, August 20. “Everyone’s happy and healthy, and they’re extremely grateful. He’s been an easy baby so far,” a source tells Us, adding that the couple have named their son Ever Leo.

The singer confirmed the news via Instagram with a baby bump photo, writing, “So grateful.”

“Aww congrats! I love this. You’re going to be a great mommy!” Michele’s former costar Naya Rivera commented on the social media upload, while her Scream Queens costar Emma Roberts wrote, “Crying! Screaming!!! Love you !”

The New York native started dating Reich in 2017 after being friends for years, and she got engaged to the AYR president, 37, the following year.

I get to be married to my best friend, which is the greatest thing in the entire world,” the Emmy nominee gushed to Us exclusively in July 2019, four months after her nuptials in Napa, California. “At this point in my life, I feel the most grounded — and happiest — I ever have.”

Glee stars Becca Tobin, Darren Criss and Jonathan Groff attended her and Reich’s March 2019 ceremony, while the Fox show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy officiated the wedding.

“Ryan is like my family,” Michele gushed Brides magazine in February 2019 about the American Horror Story co-creator, 54. “One of the greatest friends in the world that I have, so when my boyfriend got the seal of approval from Ryan Murphy, that’s it. Yeah, my parents, friends, whatever, but Ryan Murphy, done deal seals the deal.”

Following her pregnancy announcement, the “Run to You” singer began documenting her pregnancy via social media, from PDA pictures with the Wharton School of Business graduate to bathing suit mirror selfies.

“The best Mother’s Day with the best mother in the world,” she captioned a May post of herself cradling her budding belly with her mom, Edith Sarfati, at her side. “I love you mom.”
