*Reality TV star Draya Michele and her on-again, off-again lover, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick, are expecting their 1st child together. A boy to be exact! Draya’s rep confirmed the baby news to People magazine.
“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 told People.com. “They were both positive and I was instantly excited.”
The 30-year-old former “Basketball Wives” star is also mom to 13-year-old Kniko, and Scandrick, 28, is father to 6-year-old twin daughters Taylor and Tatiana.
“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,” said Michele. “Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced then 13 years ago when I had my first child.”
Michele said she waited until she was well into her 2nd trimester to share the news, and she has no plans to stay at home and be a full-time mother after she gives birth.
“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 said. “I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full-time.”
“I plan on working on the 2016 summer collection of Mint Swim and I have a few movies premiering as well as a TV show. I’m a very busy lady and I love taking my bump to work with me.”
It was previously speculated that Draya was pregnant with twins after she and Scandrick decided she would undergo in vitro fertilization so they could have a girl and a boy. As for the couple’s wedding, they have yet to set a date, as Draya confirmed to ET back in November.
“We still don’t have a date set yet. We’re kind of just not in a rush for that,” she said. “We have a lot of traveling we want to do and we want to make sure we get our bucket list finished, then we’ll get married.”
Babies before marriage!
