Reality television star Draya Michele recently posted a bunch of beautiful maternity pictures on Instagram, leaving the public to believe that she was still pregnant. Well, Draya took to Twitter to announce to the world that she in fact gave birth to a beautiful baby boy a whole week ago! On April 8th to be exact.  Draya said she kept the birth a secret, so she could enjoy her baby’s first days by herself with no media attention.

According to People Magazine, the bundle of joy named Jru (pronounced Drew) was born in Burbank, California. Despite rumors that Draya was “too small” to deliver a healthy  baby, her little man weighed 6.5 pounds and was 20 inches long.

We are super excited to add our sixth member to the family,” she told the People. “He’s such a good, healthy baby and everyone is already infatuated with him. His brother and sisters are in love.”

Jru is Draya’s first baby with fiancé Orlando Scandrick, the Mint Swint owner has a 13-year-old son named Kniko from a previous relationship; and Orlando has beautiful twin daughters, Tatiana and Taylor, who are 6-years-old.

There hasn’t been any photos released of the baby yet; however, Draya did post a video on Instagram of her dancing to Beyoncé’s “Check On It,” claiming it made her go into labor so Beyoncé is the baby’s honorary fairy god mother.


How cute! We are happy for Draya and Orlando on their new baby boy.
