Talk about a story line (you realize this means there is going to be another season of Basketball Wives: LA, right?)! Of course, she has to actually be on the show to have a story line, and that’s up in the air for this multi-tasking diva! Draya Michele has just announced that she is expecting a baby with Orlando Scandrick, her fiancé. I remember when the two announced their engagement as last season of BBWLA aired. Am I the only one who missed that these two got back together after a very public break-up? Apparently yes…and I work here. Yo-yo relationship, anyone?
While the thirty-year-old reality star is already a mom to thirteen-year-old son Kniko, this with be Draya’s first child with the Dallas Cowboys cornerback. Orlando is the father to six-year-old twins Tatiana and Taylor from a previous relationship. Draya recently shared that the couple will be welcoming a son in late April evening out the sibling dynamic. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Speaking to People, Draya reveals, “I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time! They were both positive and I was instantly excited.”
The BBWLA drama queen is thrilled to have learned the baby’s gender so early in her pregnancy. She tells the site, “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. Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced then 13 years ago when I had my first child.”
Discussing how the stars have aligned for her growing family, Draya asserts that it’s been an easy pregnancy. She states, “We are preparing for a Taurus baby. He’ll be the first Taurus in our family of four Aquarius and one Capricorn (almost Aquarius)!” She adds, “I wasn’t sick for longer than three weeks and I’ve been dieting and keeping up with cardio to keep my weight down. I really enjoy nap time since I’m still working full time.”
Admitting that Kniko was quickly suspicious of the change in his mother’s demeanor, her oldest is thrilled at the prospect of a little brother. Draya explains, “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. He’s excited to be a big brother and wants to teach him soccer.”
Even with a baby on board, Draya isn’t planning to slow down in her quest for an empire. She asserts, “I plan on working on the 2016 summer collection of Mint Swim and I have a few movies premiering as well as a TV show. I’m a very busy lady and I love taking my bump to work with me.”
