It’s a big week for Lea Michele and Zandy Reich!

The couple welcomed their first child together — a baby boy — on Aug. 20, her rep told TODAY.

The “Glee” star, 33, confirmed she was pregnant on Instagram in early May, posting a photo in a bohemian blue dress while smiling down at her baby bump on full display.

“So grateful 💛,” she simply captioned the post.

Michele and Reich met at a mutual friend’s wedding and went public with their relationship in July 2017. They announced their engagement the next year in April of 2018.

They married in an intimate ceremony in March 2019 in front of friends and family in Napa, California. In honor of their one-year anniversary, Michele shared footage from her wedding on Instagram. In the clip, she's all smiles as she cheers walking down the aisle.

A few months before sharing that she and her husband were expecting, Michele got candid with Health magazine for the first time in her career about her polycystic ovarian syndrome. PCOS can lead to infertility, acne, facial hair and irregular periods, and Michele said she was diagnosed in her late 20s.

"Growing up, I had terrible skin," Michele told the magazine. "I went on Accutane three times. I was put on every medication you could imagine to help my skin."

She said she discovered she had PCOS after she decided to “detox my body of all medications.”

"There are way more extreme versions of PCOS that women have a lot of difficulty with — mine is not as intense," she said. "Which is why I haven't really talked about it, because there are women who have it so much more intense."

Michele has posted on Instagram throughout her pregnancy, sharing plenty of baby bump shots leading up to the exciting birth of her son.

Congratulations to the happy couple and first-time parents!
