Lea Michele welcomed son Ever Leo Reich: ‘He’s been an easy baby so far’

Pregnant Lea Michele and mom go for a walk in Santa Monica

Throughout the month of June, we were all obsessed with Lea Michele getting “outed” as a massive jackass. It started when Lea tried to post something about Black Lives Matter, and Black actresses who worked with Lea on Glee said that actually, she spent years bullying them and threatening to sh-t in their wigs. It all came tumbling out, how Lea was persona non grata in the Broadway community and beauty industry, and how basically she only works because Ryan Murphy keeps hiring her, and she treats everyone like sh-t. Lea tried to apologize but she made it so much worse because her apology was one of the worst things I’ve ever read.

Anyway, Lea was pregnant when all that happened. She was actually in her last trimester. Which makes me feel a little bit sorry for her, then I remember that she would sh-t in my wig if given the chance. Well, good news. Lea gave birth to a boy. It was apparently an uneventful birth. Get a load of the name though.

Lea Michele is a mom. The former Glee actress, 33, and husband Zandy Reich welcomed a baby boy on Aug. 20, a source tells PEOPLE.

“Everyone’s happy and healthy, and they’re extremely grateful,” the source says.

“He’s been an easy baby so far,” the source adds of Michele and Reich’s first child.

PEOPLE confirmed the couple named their son Ever Leo.

EVER LEO. My God. “Ever” and “Everly” seem like favorite names for celebrity children in the past decade – Alanis Morissette has a son named Ever, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have a daughter named Everly. It’s a thing. But to put the name with “Leo” is just kind of weird? It feels like she’s writing poetry about Leonardo DiCaprio. Ever Leo, Evermore, Ever Loved…

    Maybe it’s Leo for zodiac sign?
    Either way, not good.

  2. Lightpurple says:

    Leo is his zodiac sign so he will be Forever a Leo.

    An easy baby so far? He’s 3 days old.

  3. Snazzy says:

    What got me was the last name … Reich. I mean I know it’s a normal German word but the connotations plus the person … Yikes

    • Clarissa says:

      Well quite. Best wishes to Zandy, Lea and the Third Reich. For Ever!!


    • JaneDoesWerk says:

      That’s what struck out to me as well… Ever Reich. Yikes. I don’t think that was the intention or message behind the name AT ALL more like they didn’t even think of it. Oof.

  4. Scarlett says:

    It’s a good thing he was not a Sagittarius…just sayin’ …would be a tough name to pronounce.

  5. Chaine says:

    Why do new parents say stuff like this? Easy so far… you have been dealing with him less than a week, lady. Call me back in August 2038 and tell me how easy he has been.

  6. My3cents says:

    For karma’s sake I really hope that baby takes a shit in her wig . I’m also open to vomiting.

  7. Boogie down says:

    I honestly thought she named him Leo because it’s the male version of Lea and she’s that self absorbed

  8. Lisa says:

    Congrats to them. The name is not my cup of tea.

  9. Lelbit says:

    Easy. Oh geez I was a difficult baby & that followed me to this day. I wonder why!!! No labels please. It’s a baby.

  10. No Mommy Shame says:

    LOL – most babies are “easy” the first 2 weeks because all they do is sleep. Wait until week 3 when he wakes up.

  11. ADD1 says:

    @Boogie Down OMG I bet you’re right. Holy crap!

  12. Prayer Warrior says:

    my kid was colic-y from the second he came out (via c-section). Also, he had an anal fissure, so every time he pooped, he screamed in pain. It was awful and 35 years ago PPD was not a thing. It was six months before I truly bonded w/my baby (though I would have died for him, of course) and it was two years before I regained consciousness and started living in my body again. His dad was long gone by then. Yeah, I wish them well, and I hope he stays ‘easy’ for her, because the alternatives are just plain hard

  13. Case says:

    I really dislike the name “Ever” and especially in this instance in combination with the middle name. I think the name Leo is adorable on its own, though.

  14. LoonaticCap says:

    I read on Refinery29 that Ever is a jewish name and Leo for her Italian side.. They wanted to honor both heritages.
    I’ve heard worse names like bear or apple or.. So many terrible baby names. I’ll put this one on the least stupid names pile.

  15. Cee says:

    I’ve met several men of German descent named Ever lol
