Lea Michele Admits She Cried in a Hospital Bathroom Amid 2-Year-Old Son Ever's Ongoing 'Scary Health Issue'

Seeing your children sick is one of the worst feelings in the world — especially when there’s not a lot you can do to help. Lea Michele is going through this now amid her 2-year-old son Ever Leo’s “scary health issue,” and our hearts go out to her.

 “Ran to give my baby a hug at home in between shows,” the Funny Girl actress wrote on her Instagram Story yesterday, along with a close-up photo of her hugging Ever, who she shares with husband Zandy Reich. “It was quick but worth it. ❤️”

The star had two performances as Fanny Brice in the Broadway show yesterday, but she made sure to make time for baby snuggles since he isn’t feeling well.

Last month, Michele shared a picture on her Instagram Story announcing that she would be out of Funny Girl for the night. “We are at the hospital with our son dealing with a scary health issue that I need to be here for,” she wrote, per PEOPLE. She added, “I am so sorry. Please send us some love and strength.”

She returned to Funny Girl, writing on her Instagram Story that she was “really happy to be back,” per PEOPLE. She added, “It’s been a really long week, and we’re still not out of the woods completely with our son. But he’s headed in a good direction, and we’re really, really grateful.”  

Then yesterday, Michele shared that her son had been hospitalized again, per PEOPLE, although she still hasn’t revealed why. Over a picture of Ever sleeping in a crib on her Instagram Story, the Glee alum wrote, “Today was a hard day. As parents we have to be strong for our kids. But sometimes you just want to break down and cry (Hidden in the bathroom or closet is usually best. Today I chose hospital bathroom).” Aww! That has to be so tough.
