Lea Michele is reflecting on half a decade with her husband Zandy Reich!

On Saturday, the 37-year-old Funny Girl alum shared a sentimental post on Instagram — featuring a picture of her and Reich at last year's TIME100 Gala in New York City — to mark the pair's fifth wedding anniversary.

"5 years ❤️ I love you Z," Michele captioned the photo, in which she wore a stunning baby blue gown next to her suit-clad husband.

Michele briefly elaborated on the milestone in an Instagram Story post, where she shared an image of Reich holding her and giving her a kiss. "Happy 5 year anniversary to the best husband and father," she wrote. "I love you so much Z."

Michele and Reich share son Ever Leo Reich, whom they welcomed on Aug. 20, 2020 — over a year after tying the knot in a Northern California ceremony on March 9, 2019.

Michele and Reich's wedding took place two years after they were first romantically linked after being spotted enjoying a walk together in New York City in 2017. At the time of their nuptials, the pair told PEOPLE they were "so excited to be married and grateful to be surrounded by our friends and family" for the occasion.

"And most of all, we're so happy to spend the rest of our lives together," they added at the time.

After their wedding at Napa’s Carneros Resort, Michele's longtime friend Brad Goreski, who styled her for the big day, told PEOPLE that the actress and Reich were "both so happy" on their special day. Michele wore a custom Monique Lhuillier strapless silk wedding gown during the ceremony, which was officiated by Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

“The best days of all will be what we get to do with each other for the rest of our lives,” she said at the time. “I couldn’t be more grateful.”

In the years since, the couple's lives have changed as they've raised their son. During a conversation with Extra in late 2021, the actress revealed that motherhood had "softened me a lot."

"And I probably could have used a little softening," she noted, adding, "[Ever] really is just the thing that has changed me the most."

Last August, Michele celebrated their son's third birthday by posting some family snaps on Instagram that offered a glimpse of Ever's PAW Patrol-themed party.

“Happy 3rd Birthday to our beautiful son! Ever we love you so much!,” she wrote.

In July, Michele told her fans that she was looking forward to enjoying time with her boys following the conclusion of her record-breaking run in Funny Girl as Fanny Brice. "Lots and lots of snuggles with this guy and some good family time... Then back to work!!!" Michele wrote on Instagram after she was asked what her next steps would be.
