Lea Michele’s son “cried hysterically” when he heard her sing.
The 36-year-old actress – who has a two-year-old son Ever Leo with husband Zandy Reich – is best known for her role as singing diva Rachel Berry on the hit series “Glee” but now as comedian Fanny Bryce in the Broadway musical Acts. After ‘Funny Girl’ and returning to the stage, she was advised to be more “involved” in her work.
Speaking on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ he said: “[Starting ‘Funny Girl’ was] I went back to work for the first time [since he was born], I’ve been at home with him for the past two years, 100 percent, and now I’m back at work. I’ve been at home with him for the past two years, 100 percent, and now I’m back at work. So, my singing coach was like, ‘You can try to include what you’re doing, like, try to involve him in it, so that he can be a part of it and you can’t get that far from him. The other day, I hit something like, high note and [Ever] started crying hysterically. I’m like, ‘Okay, that was a huge failure!'”
The “Scream Queens” actress released the lullaby album “Forever” earlier this year and dedicated a collection of “special and important” songs she initially heard when she was pregnant with her son.
She said: “Being a mother is one of the greatest gifts and I love being an Ever Mom. It was very special to make my lullaby album as a tribute to her. I wanted to sing songs that were special and important to me. Be that have special meaning. Behind them. Those were the songs I used to listen to when I first found out I was pregnant and now it’s great for my son to sing them..”
