Former reality TV star Draya Michele announced the arrival of her child on Friday, May 15.

The former “Basketball Wives” star informed her 10 million followers that she delivered her newborn a week ago.

She also conveyed a poignant story of her father passing away on Mother’s Day, and how it was hard to commemorate the day ever since until her third child was born on Father’s Day in 2024.

“In 2021 on Mother’s Day, my dad passed away,” Michele began in her caption. “Since then, it’s been extremely hard to celebrate that day without remembering the earth shattering phone call I received that morning. Well, this Mother’s Day was different.”

Michele wrote that the miracle she helped produce lifted her spirit on what had become a sullen, despondent day: “My daughter was safely brought into this world and I’m forever grateful for the new memories we all get to experience moving forward. 🩶 Love + Light everyone.”

In the first photo on her IG page, Michele showed his multiple bouquets of flowers filling her home. The next picture is the baby girl’s feet being held by Michele.

Michele already has a son, Kniko, 21, with Kniko Howard Sr., and another son, Jru, 7, with former NFL defensive back Orlando Scandrick, who is best known for his stint with the Dallas Cowboys. 

According to reports from TMZ Sports, Green fathered another child in February, but the mother, Myah Iakopo, reportedly has no hard feelings for Draya.
