Lea Michele tied the knot in 2019 and fans are keen to meet the man who stole her heart. Michele is a woman of many talents. From singing and dancing in Broadway productions to taking over our TV screens on the FOX hit TV show Glee, she can do it all!
The musical-comedy-drama series was a sensation and millions of people tuned in as the show’s choir cast addressed social issues and current affairs. Michele played the lead role Rachel Berry on the fan-favorite show. After six seasons on the hit drama, Michele left the stage in 2015 as the show wound up closing its curtain.
Since her time on Glee, the actress has focused on her growth both professionally and personally, which includes her wellness journey. “I started to learn that the better I ate and the better I took care of myself, the better I looked, performed, and felt,” she told Health. What exactly does this mean for the busy starlet? “To me, wellness means putting your mind, body and spirit first by making the best choices possible for you — no matter how busy your schedule might be,” Michele told NBC News. The wellness lover, author, singer and performer has one more title in her roster: Mrs! Here’s what we know about her husband, Zandy Reich.
They were friends first
While Lea Michele has made a name for himself on the stage, Zandy Reich takes a more private approach to his endeavors. Michele and Reich’s wedding may have come as a surprise to some fans, but others were expecting it, given the two were friends at first. The president of clothing company AYR and the former Glee graduate met through mutual friends in July 2017, and their friendship quickly turned romantic when they began dating shortly after, according to People.
The lovebirds got engaged in April 2018 during a romantic trip to the Hamptons and tied the knot in March 2019 in Napa, California. “Zandy is perfect for her. She knew early on in their relationship that it was right,” a friend shared with People. “She’s been through so much, everyone close to her is just thrilled that she’s found happiness.” The Hurricane romance was clearly built to last. “I’m getting married to my best friend, which is the biggest thing in the whole world,” Michele exclusively told Us Weekly in July 2019. “At this point in my life, I feel the most grounded — and happiest — I’ve ever felt .”
Now the couple have celebrated a number of milestones including reaching their third year of marriage in March 2022. Michele took to Instagram to celebrate the happy occasion. “6 years friendship, 5 years together, 3 years marriage,” she captioned the post, adding that the couple celebrated a year and a half of another big commitment.
Lea Michele and Zandy Reich have a son
Lea Michele and Zandy Reich went from newlywed to parent within their first year of marriage when the couple welcomed their son, Ever Leo, in August 2020.
Though the actress usually keeps the details about her relationship and son a secret, she gave fans a glimpse of her new reality in January 2022. The star shared a sweet tribute for her husband’s birthday and also gave fans a quick snap of her baby for the first time. “Greatest man, father, husband and friend. I wake up every day so thankful that you are our Z,” Michele wrote alongside the sweet snap. “Happy Birthday! Always and I love you so much.”
Between juggling motherhood and her booming career, the multi-faceted star has her hands full! It has been announced that Michele has landed the role of Fanny Brice in the Broadway production Funny Girl in July 2022 by deadline. The role was originally made famous by Barbra Streisand and is more than a dream come true for the megastar. Michele wrote on Instagram: “A dream come true is an understatement. I am so incredibly honored to be joining this amazing cast and production and to return to the stage and play Fanny Brice on Broadway.”
