In April she revealed she was having a girl. ‘Our original plan was to wait and be surprised at birth, but we decided at a time like this, some good news for us to be excited about right now outweighed a surprise in September,’ explained Lee, in a post shared to her Instagram.
Previously, Lee opened about her fertility challenges after trying to conceive with Biegel since their September 2018 wedding.
‘I am so beyond appreciative to all of you who have sent me kind messages and well wishes both since I got pregnant and since I shared with you about my fertility struggles last year,’ she wrote in April on social media.

In 2019, she spoke candidly about undergoing IVF treatment and how the ‘intense process’ had, unfortunately, resulted in ‘zero healthy embryos.’
‘They say it takes a village to raise a child, but for some of us, it takes a village to have a child.’
The ex-wife of Billy Joel – they were wed from 2004 until 2010 – talked often of her pregnancy.
In May she spoke candidly about her experience on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna.
‘I’ve never felt better about my body than right now, and I just love being pregnant,’ said the celebrity chef.
‘We’re so excited,’ Lee said of the anticipation felt by her and husband Ryan Biegel.
‘And, you know, I feel like the best thing about being home during this time is that I don’t ever have to put on tight clothes!’
‘I get to just keep growing and wearing sweatpants!’ said the ex-wife of singer Billy Joel.
‘It’s a strange time – and obviously there’s a lot of anxiety about everything going on in the world – but I’m just trying to have every moment of joy that I can.’
