The singer and actor first shared on Instagram that she was pregnant in May. “So grateful,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself showing off her baby bump in a blue bohemian-style dress.

Over the course of Michele's pregnancy, she shared several other bump photos, including a special one with her mom in honor of Mother's Day.

"The best Mother’s Day with the best mother in the world. I love you mom," she captioned the Instagram post.

Reich and Michele met at a mutual friend's wedding and started dating in 2017. They became engaged the following April. They wed in an intimate ceremony in front of family and friends in March 2019 in Napa, California. For the big day, she wore a white strapless gown with a full skirt and long veil.
