The unique name, Ever is of English origin and is derived from the English word “ever,” which means “always” or “eternally.” As a name, Ever is a beautiful choice as it conveys a sense of permanence, continuity and everlasting love.

His middle name, Leo has many origins, is rich with symbolism, and is often chosen for its regal and majestic qualities.

Reflecting on her journey to motherhood, Lea has always been open about her struggles, particularly her battle with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition that can affect fertility. In a candid conversation with Katherine Schwarzenegger on the Before, During & After series in 2021, Michele admitted that her inability to conceive was her “biggest fear.”

She described the challenges of managing PCOS, especially when trying to conceive with irregular periods, saying, “You never really know when you can get pregnant.”

Despite the obstacles, Lea and Zandy have cherished their family moments, recently celebrating Ever’s third birthday with heartfelt messages and cherished memories.

As they embark on this new chapter of parenthood, fans eagerly await the arrival of another bundle of joy for the radiant couple. Congratulations to Lea Michele and Zandy Reich on their growing family!
