The 36-year-old actress spoke to PEOPLE magazine at the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Wednesday and said her son Ever has a “long road ahead” after having to be hospitalized multiple times since March.

“Ever’s doing good,” Michele said. “He’s doing well. We still have a little bit of a long road ahead of us here, but he’s doing well, thank God, and healthy.”

“The most amazing support from my [Broadway] cast and my family,” she added. “My husband is wonderful, he’s here tonight … I’m so happy to be here and honored more than anything.”

Earlier this month, the Hollywood star shared news on her Instagram Story when Ever had to be hospitalized again after being home for a while, the outlet noted.

“Today was a hard day,” Michele wrote. “As parents, we have to be strong for our kids. But sometimes you just want to break down and cry.”

“Hidden in the bathroom or closet is usually best [for crying],” she added. “Today I chose hospital bathroom.”


“These hard times show you truly what matters and is important in life and how much we have to be grateful for,” Michele continued. “It’s been hard, to say the least, but our boy is such a champ and is going to be ok. But it still hurts.”

In her Instagram post from the same day, she shared a photo of her and Ever at the beach. She captioned the post, “My everything [heart emoji].”

The actress shared the news on her Instagram Stories on March 22 that her son had been hospitalized, the outlet noted. The star of Broadway’s “Funny Girl” announced she was taking time away from the show to be by her son’s side.

“I’m so sorry, but unfortunately, I will be out of [funnygirlbway] today,” Michele wrote at the time. “We are at the hospital with our son dealing with a scary health issue that I need to be here for. I’m so sorry. Please send us some love and strength.”
