The rumors are true. Draya Michele and Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick are expecting a child together. The 30-year-old swimsuit designer confirmed the news to People Tuesday.
“I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time!” Michele said. “They were both positive, and I was instantly excited.”
The former “Basketball Wives LA” star is currently in her second trimester and expected to give birth in April. It’s a boy! This will be her second son. She is already the proud mom of 13-year-old Kniko, who became suspicious during his mom’s brief battle with morning sickness.
“I just had to buckle down and tell him. I honestly felt really bad keeping it a secret from him, so I made sure that he was one of the very first people that I told,” she shared. “He’s excited to be a big brother and wants to teach him soccer.”
“We made an appointment to see the sex of the baby for 16 weeks, but surprisingly at 12 weeks, our doctor was able to see that he was a boy,” she explained. “Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced then 13 years ago when I had my first child.”
Scandrick, 28, also fathers 6-year-old twin girls, Taylor and Tatiana. According to Draya, the pregnancy has been going pretty well so far.
“I wasn’t sick for longer than three weeks, and I’ve been dieting and keeping up with cardio to keep my weight down,” she shared. “I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full time.”
Congrats to the happy couple.
