Lea Michele’s Son Starts School Same Day As ‘Funny Girl’ Debut

Lea Michele’s 2-year-old son, Ever, started school the same day his mother made her “Funny Girl” debut on Broadway.

“Today is a special and important day that was here in the blink of an eye,” the 36-year-old actress wrote in an Instagram story on Tuesday.

“I cried when I fastened your little shoes this morning,” continued the “Glee” alum. “I feel like yesterday you were born. And now you have your first day of school.”

The singer called herself the toddler’s “mom to everything,” concluding, “I love you.”

Michele and her husband Zandy Reich’s little one wore a blue backpack in the back-to-school snap, monogrammed with his “ELR” initials.

After marking the milestone moment, the Emmy nominee began promoting her first performance as Fanny Brice that night.

While Beanie Feldstein originally played the part when the show opened in April, news came three months later that Michele was taking over.

Michele took the stage that night as Fannie Brice.

“A dream come true is an understatement,” she told her Instagram followers in July. “I am so incredibly honored to join this amazing cast and production and return to the stage to play Fanny Brice on Broadway. Until Sept 6.

Michele, who previously made headlines for her behavior on the “Glee” set, was “so nice” behind the scenes of the Broadway show.

In July, the news came about Michele’s new Broadway role.

“She makes Julie Andrews look like a bitch,” a source joked to Vidak For Congress on Tuesday.

In an interview with The New York Times published last week, the “Scream Queens” alum addressed her past behavior and blamed her work ethic.

“I have an edge. I work very hard. I don’t leave room for mistakes,” Michele explained. “That level of perfectionism, or that pressure of perfectionism, created a lot of blind spots.”
