Michele has two sons from previous relationships. She named her firstborn Kniko and later welcomed another son, Jru, with Scandrick.

On International Women's Day in 2024, Michele announced her third pregnancy with a series of photos featuring her baby bump.

"As women, we navigate through so much, often leading us to question, ‘What is my purpose?’ For me, the magic lies in motherhood and the awe-inspiring ability to bring life into this world over the span of two decades," she wrote on Instagram.

Michele went on, revealing the sex of her and Green's baby.

"If anything can surpass the wonder of being a woman, it’s the privilege of bringing another woman into existence," she added. "We are overjoyed to share our love for you, little girl. I'm excited to speak words to the daughter I never thought I’d have."

Michele didn’t share the name of the baby's father but NBA player Kyle Kuzma revealed that Green was the father with his comment, “It’s up familyyy @jalen @drayamichele ❤️," per Page Six.
