Lea has since shared several snaps of her growing baby bump with her last few photos having no captions.

In the midst of her pregnancy joy, Lea experienced an unfortunate loss, with the death of her former Glee co-star Naya Rivera at 33 in July.

The Glee star was reported as missing on July 8, after she vanished on Lake Piru after taking a pontoon boat out on the water with her four-year-old son Josey.

Her body was later discovered and was laid to rest on July 24 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, with the death certificate confirming that the cause of death was drowning.

The death certificate also reported that she died in a ‘matter of minutes’ and there were no other major contributing factors to her death.  

Once she learned of Rivera’s tragic passing, Lea took to her Instagram Story to pay tribute to her, as well as their co-star Cory Monteith.

Michele was dating Monteith when he died in 2013 at the age of 31, after suffering an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

It marked her return to social media, after a scandal in late May, when fellow Glee star Samantha Ware called her out for terrorising her behind-the-scenes.

Ware tweeted about Michele: ‘Remember when you made my first television gig a living hell?!?! Cause I’ll never forget.’

The Spring Awakening star later posted a public apology: ‘I apologise for my behaviour and for any pain which I have caused.

‘We can all grow and change and I have definitely used these past several months to reflect on my own shortcomings.’
