Rumours first circulated in April that the couple were expecting their first child, but they didn't confirm the news until 2 May. Lea posted a photo of herself displaying her blossoming baby bump, which she captioned: "So grateful," followed by a yellow heart emoji.

Fans of the Scream Queens star were delighted by the news - particularly since 2020 also marks the year that Lea's character in Glee, Rachel Berry, is pregnant.

Lea and Zandy married in March 2019 following two years of dating. Lea previously opened up about wanting children, telling Health: "Oh my gosh, I hope to be a mum of, like, ten kids—if it’s physically possible to pop that many out! Ha! I’m so excited about the thought of being a mum."

Speaking about her husband, she also said: "I always had relationships where I needed to be the one holding down the fort, and it’s wonderful to have someone who’s in their own lane and has a foundation for who they are and where they are in their own life.

"We met at the same level personally and professionally. And to go on that journey now together is unbelievable."
