In September of last year, on the same day she returned to Broadway, Michele sent her son off to his first day of "little school," writing on her Instagram Story: "Today is a special and important day that within the blink of an eye was here."

"I cried as I tied your little shoes this morning," she wrote alongside a photo featuring Ever sporting a school backpack with his initials. "I feel like just yesterday you were born. And now you have your first day of little school. I'm your mama before anything ever and I love you."

Speaking to PEOPLE at that time, Michele said she was "nervous to go back to work and leave him."

However, she added, "I spoke to so many incredible women in the Broadway community who are also moms. And all of these women just said it's important for him to see you working, and for him to see you doing what you love. So I just have to keep reminding myself of that."
