For once, the rumors about Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick are true. After weeks of Internet speculation, the former Basketball Wives star confirmed that she is, indeed, pregnant! This will be the first child for the engaged couple, though both have children from previous relationships. Draya has a 13-year-old son, Kniko, and NFL player Scandrick is dad to six-year-old twins.
In fact, the couple have been keeping the news a secret for some time. Draya is already in her second trimester, she reveals to People, and knows that she's having another boy! “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 explains. “Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced than 13 years ago when I had my first child.”
And Draya isn't letting a little thing like morning sickness keep her down. “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 shares. “I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full time.” She adds, “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.”
Congratulations to the couple! One thing we know for sure, Baby Boy Scandrick won't be encouraged to follow his mom into fame. Watch Draya talk to us about keeping her kids away from reality TV below:
