Glee star Lea Michele has announced she is expecting another baby with husband Zandy Reich.

The Rachel Berry actress, who already shares a young son named Ever with Reich, took to Instagram on March 27 to announce the happy news by sharing some sweet photos of her baby bump.

"Mommy, Daddy and Ever are overjoyed," she captioned the post.

Michele was congratulated by fans and fellow celebs in the comments section, including New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, who wrote: "Congratulations!!!"

High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale, who recently announced that she too is expecting her second child, also shared her well-wishes, writing: "So excited for this beautiful family".

Michele and Reich tied the knot back in 2019, before welcoming their first son Ever in 2020.

Candidly opening up about the challenges of parenting last year after Ever was hospitalised, Michele shared that she wants to "break down and cry" at times.

"As parents we have to be strong for our kids. But sometimes you just want to break down and cry. (Hidden in the bathroom or closet is usually best. Today I chose hospital bathroom)," she wrote on her Instagram Story.

"These hard times show you truly what matters and is important in life and how much we have to be grateful for," she continued, adding that Ever was, thankfully, "going to be ok".

Elsewhere, Michele's former Glee co-star Darren Criss, who played Blaine Anderson on the hit musical series, recently announced that he and his wife Mia Swier are also expecting their second child together.

The couple married in 2019 after dating for nearly a decade and welcomed their first child, a daughter named Bluesy Belle, in 2022.
