Michele and Reich were first romantically linked in July 2017. Reich proposed the following April, with a four-carat elongated radiant cut ring that he personally designed with Leor Yerushalmi and The Jewelers of Las Vegas.

The Scream Queens alum announced their engagement on Instagram, posting a photo of herself with her ring-bearing hand on her face. "Yes," Michele wrote in the caption, including a diamond-ring emoji.

PEOPLE exclusively reported in March 2019 that Michele and Reich had tied the knot in an intimate and romantic ceremony in Northern California, celebrating with over 200 family members and close friends including Michele's Glee pals Darren Criss and Becca Tobin, as well as her Scream Queens costar Emma Roberts.

The actress previously spoke about wanting a large family. "I'm going to have like a billion [kids]! But mainly because I always hated being an only child, I always wished I had more siblings!" she told Glamour U.K. in 2014.
