Lea Michele’s son starts school the same day as ‘Funny Girl’ debut

Lea Michele’s 2-year-old son, Ever, started school the same day that his mom made her “Funny Girl” debut on Broadway.

“Today is a special and important day that within the blink of an eye was here,” the actress, 36, captioned an Instagram Story snap Tuesday.

“I cried as I tied your little shoes this morning,” the “Glee” alum continued. “I feel like just yesterday you were born. And now you have your first day of little school.”

The singer called herself the toddler’s “mama before anything” and concluded, “I love you.”

Michele and husband Zandy Reich’s little one wore a blue backpack in the back-to-school snap, monogrammed with his “ELR” initials.

After marking the milestone moment, the Emmy nominee began promoting her first performance as Fanny Brice that evening.

While Beanie Feldstein originally starred in the role when the show opened in April, news broke three months later that Michele was taking over.

“A dream come true is an understatement,” she told her Instagram followers in July. “I’m so incredibly honored to join this amazing cast and production and return to the stage playing Fanny Brice on Broadway. See you September 6th.”

Michele, who previously made headlines for her behavior on the “Glee” set, has been “so nice” behind the scenes of the Broadway show.

“She makes Julie Andrews look like a bitch,” a source joked to Page Six on Tuesday.

In an interview with The New York Times published last week, the “Scream Queens” alum addressed her past behavior, blaming it on her work ethic.

“I have an edge to me. I work really hard. I leave no room for mistakes,” Michele explained. “That level of perfectionism, or that pressure of perfectionism, left me with a lot of blind spots.”
