The former VH1’s 'Basketball Wives LA' star Draya Michele was hitting the news due to her pregnancy, however, everything has now come to an order after she revealed the identity of her child’s father. It’s none other than our Dallas Cowboys star Orlando Scandrick. Yes, after years of long on and off relationship, this couple is back again with not just the news of being a parent but being engaged to one another too.

In January 2013, Draya started dating NFL player Orlando Scandrick while filming Basketball Wives LA. However, their relationship was never a normal one. People were shocked when, last year, the news about Orlando Getting a restraining order against Draya that claimed him being the victim of domestic violence came out.  There were statements which said that she doused him with mace by flinging various objects at him, ruined his clothing and she even threatened to throw bleach in his eyes. Orlando was granted the request as well. However, Draya publicly denied that there was never any restraining order.

Despite all the controversies, they got engaged in 2015. Draya was seen with a 7-carat diamond ring on her finger that weighed about $400,000. Despite their disturbing headlines that got a place in media from time to time, it seemed as this couple finally settled down all of their grudges. But, they proved everyone wrong again as they broke up again in January 2016, when Draya was still pregnant. But, later, they got back together within two weeks.

On April 8, 2016, Draya gave birth to her son Jru Scandrick in Burbank, California. The child weighed 6.5 lbs. and measured 20 inches long at the time of its birth. However, Jru is not Draya’s only child. She has 13-year-old son Kniko from her previous relationship. Similarly, Taylor and Tatiana are Orlando’s twin daughters from his past relationship.


Draya Michele is already 31 now while her fiancé Orlando Scandrick is 29. Since they have not married yet, it's obvious that they have not divorced till date. However, this cute couple is all set to get married later this year. We hope they will make a good husband and wife together.
