Not only that, but she also revealed that she was going to have a baby boy. She and her beau at-the-time, Orlando made an appointment to find out the gender of the child for the 16th week, but they found about him four weeks prior.

We made an appointment to see the sex of the baby for 16 weeks, but surprisingly at 12 weeks, our doctor was able to see that he (Jru) was a boy. Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced than 13 years ago when I had my first child.

Almost a week after giving birth to Jru, Draya took to her socials to reveal that she welcomed him last week and that he’s a healthy baby.

For the first photos of Jru, his mother readied him with his father’s jersey in December when he was already eight months old. A few months prior, when asked why she hadn’t revealed any pictures of Jru by one of her Instagram fans, ValerieZuniga, she indicated that he’s too young and still changing. She wrote, “In other words, he’s ugly.”

Happy Mother’s Day to the women out there. We are created to recreate and that is the biggest gift of all from God. I had a silent delivery because I didn’t want to stress my baby and when I pulled him from my body I’ve never felt so important. I’ve made mistakes and had some growing to do and this little guy came at the right time. Orlando, thank you for Jru, Tatiana, and Taylor, and loving Kniko unconditionally. Yesenia, bestie, godmother, sister… I couldn’t have done this without you and Orlando by my side. Thanks to my Dr. and a special #happymothersday to Shonna my nurse. I’m strong. #reachoutandbringlifeintotheworld Jru is a month today, and what a special day it is. sorry if this offends anyone. I’ll be removing it shortly.

Well, Jru’s parents started their dating affair in 2013 but a year after, they split following infidelity issues. While talking about her moving on, Draya wrote that she’d rather focus on her career and family than on her relationship. She also went on to say that she wasn’t one who failed because she had given her best to make things work.

The duo got together again, but history repeated itself, they broke up in 2015. This time, they revealed that the end of their relationship is mutual.

After more than two years together, Orlando and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. Unfortunately, we both live very hectic lives making it difficult to spend the deserved time together. He is a great father and athlete and I will cherish the memories that we created.

Well, to their fans’ shock, they reunited again, got engaged, and split again. This time, Orlando had to get a restraining order against Draya because she pepper-sprayed him once and also threatened to throw bleach in his eyes. The restraining order was put down and they reunited again. They welcomed their younger son, Jru, but three years later, they ended up splitting again.
