When a new baby is born, a new bunch of happiness is born. A new-born baby enhances his mother’s inner beauty. Likewise, a bundle of joy has knocked the doors of American television personality Draya Michele which has increased her attraction to a new level.
Today, we will be guiding you more about ‘Basketball Wives LA’ Star Draya Michele’s pregnancy and her child’s father.
Welcomes Baby Boy; Co-parenting Four Children With Boyfriend
On Friday, April 8, 2016, Draya Michele gave birth to a son “Jru Scandrick” with her boyfriend Orlando Scandrick, an American football cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.
She announced the news about the birth of the baby boy via social media on Thursday, April 14. She gave birth to a healthy boy at 6.5lbs and 20 inches long.
On Mother’s day, she shared a precious and intimate video with a beautiful message. In the now-deleted video, she was seen pulling out her baby.

By then, thirty-four-year-old beauty Draya was already the mother of a teenager son named “Kniko.” She even tweeted about how Kniko reacted to seeing his baby brother. She wrote:-
Kniko is scared to hold Jru. And the one time he did, he started laughing uncontrollably and I got nervous... "

No sooner had the reality star shared the news of welcoming a second baby, "haters" began to question the paternity of her newly-born. In the usual sarcastic manner, she responded by writing:-
“This child is Orlando’s and him and I both know it. Clearly only one of us in this relationship has thick enough skin to deal with the blogs. Thank you all. A simple congratuloations woulda been fine.”
Many might not know but her second baby daddy, Scandrick is a father to twin daughters.
The couple is co-parenting four children together which includes their son Jru and Draya's son Kniko from the previous relationship and Orlando's twin daughters from his previous relationship.
Speaking of which, Darya's eldest Kniko shares a minimal bond with his biological father. Kniko Sr - as claimed by the reality star - got sentenced to decade-long imprisonment when she was seven months pregnant with him.
Soon To Get Married; Turning Boyfriend To Husband
But with their ups and downs in the past, Darya and Orlando are currently going strong with their life as partners and parents to their children. After their six years of relationship together, the couple finally decided to get married.
On August 2018, the football player proposed his girlfriend publicly on social media. Responding to Draya's post with socialite Kylie Jenner on Instagram, her baby-daddy asked in the comment section if she wants to get married.
And there it was, Draya/'s most awaited moment; she quickly responded to him:
"but let's go to the courthouse when you land tho!!!!"

Believe it or not, the milestone marked Darya's second engagement to Orlando. The troubled lovebirds had gotten engaged toward the back end of 2015, only to call it quits months later in January of 2016.
To put it context, the news of the split came weeks after the pair had revealed about the pregnancy. At the time, the reality star blasted her NFL player beau on social media, accusing him of being unfaithful.
Nevertheless, though the couple has publicly announced about the soon-to-be wedding, they have not yet come with the exact date for their nuptials. As expected, the fans have been persistent in their mission to find out about Darya - now rocking a blonde hair - and her husband-to-be Orlando's wedding plans.
