Lea Michele has shared an adorable photo of her baby bump online, confirming her pregnancy to her delighted fans.
It comes after a source revealed to People a few days ago that Lea and her husband, Zandy Reich, are over the moon at the news, saying: "They've always wanted to be parents."
The Glee star can be seen standing in her garden in the Instagram photo, wearing a long blue dress alongside the words: “ So grateful” and a yellow love heart emoji.
The actress was met with a flurry of supportive and congratulatory comments from her friends, including Naya Rivera and Emma Roberts.
"Aww congrats! I love this. You're going to be a great mommy! (sic),” Naya wrote.
Emma commented saying: "Crying! Screaming!!! Love you! (sic)"
Lea and business owner Zandy, 37, were first romantically linked in July 2017, before the entrepreneur popped the question the following April.
The couple then married in March 2019, with a source telling E! News last year: "they are loving the feeling of being married and getting to call each other husband and wife."
"They were so ecstatic about the entire [wedding] weekend and just keep talking about how magical and incredible it was. They didn't want it to end and are still remembering more and more details that they had forgotten,” the source continued.
Lea's pregnancy comes as she revealed last year she suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which can sometimes make it harder for women to conceive.
"The side effects can be brutal - like weight gain and bad skin. Growing up, I had terrible skin. I went on Accutane three times. I was put on every medication that you could imagine to help my skin,” Lea told Health magazine.
She called birth control her ‘saviour’ for her skin while she was in her teens but decided to ‘detox her body’ when she was in her 20s and the side effects returned.
Lea was eventually diagnosed with the hormone imbalance and has been able to manage her condition with a plant-based diet.
