The pair announced their engagement and first pregnancy on November 2, 2020.
In May 2021, Maya and Michael broke the news that they welcomed their first child together – a son named Leon Frederick – earlier that year.
The actress disclosed to Vogue: “I found out at Michael’s parents’ house in late July.”
“I told Anna [Konkle] once I went to the doctor to confirm, so I think that was August.”
Maya, who was pregnant at the same time as PEN15 co-creator and bestie Anna Konkle, also told Vogue: “I had told her that Michael and I were going to start trying.”
“And then told her in person, socially distanced at a park, and then told all our friends in the ocean as a wave overtook us—again, socially distanced at the beach. It was very dramatic.”
