Draya is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick.
“I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time!” Michele, 30, tells PEOPLE. “They were both positive and I was instantly excited.”
“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 then 13 years ago when I had my first child.”
Draya’s Son Kniko’s reaction:
Despite feeling sick for only a few short weeks, it didn’t take long for Michele’s “smart” teenage son to become suspicious of his mom’s health. But once Kniko found out a baby brother was on the way, he couldn’t contain his excitement.
“I just had to buckle down and tell him. I honestly felt really bad keeping it a secret from him so I made sure that he was one of the very first people that I told,” says Michele. “He’s excited to be a big brother and wants to teach him soccer.”
