Michele says Ryan Murphy approving Reich "sealed the deal"

Michele previously revealed that once a very special person in her life had given Reich his "seal of approval", she knew he was a keeper! “When my boyfriend got the seal of approval from Ryan Murphy, that was it," she said during a red carpet interview at the Emmys in September 2017.

Murphy and Michele are friends as well as longtime collaborators after having worked on popular series like Glee and Scream Queens together over the years. It's no wonder then that Murphy's approval of her now husband meant a lot to Michele! "Yeah my parents, yeah friends, whatever," she joked. "But Ryan Murphy, it’s a done deal — it sealed the deal".
