After what felt like forever, fans can finally get their first view of baby Jru! Actress and former Basketball Wives LA star, Draya Michele, must’ve been in a giving mood today when she posted a pic of her son with fiancé Orlando Scandrick, Jru (pronounced “Drew”). Jru was born all the way back in April of this year, and this is the very first time the nearly eight-month-old cutie has shown his face on social media. Let’s just say he is too yummy for words.
Rocking a mini version of his football player dad’s Dallas Cowboys jersey, fans couldn’t help but point out that baby Jru is the perfect blend of mama Draya and Orlando.
Aww! It feels like just yesterday we were watching Draya help deliver her own baby like a boss!
Although it’s not uncommon for celebs to hold off debuting their little ones, we’re not sure what took Draya so long to show him off. Just this summer, when a fan insinuated that Draya was hiding baby Jru from the public, she replied in jest: “He’s just a bit too young and still changing (in other words, he’s ugly).”
Jru Scandrick is the latest edition to Orlando and Draya’s growing family, with both Draya and Orlando having children from previous relationships. Draya has a son, Kniko (13), and Orlando has twin daughters, Taylor and Tatiana. Congrats to them all!
In an interview with VH1, Basketball Wives creator Shaunie O’Neal explained her feelings about Draya leaving the hit franchise the way she did.
