Jru, the family’s little child, gets along well with both of his parents. He also has a half-brother who is older than him named Kniko Howard. In this article, we’ll talk about some little-known facts regarding Jru Scandrick, the son of Draya Michele.

Let us get started.

Jru Scandrick’s Early Life

As we previously stated, Jru Scandrick is the child of Draya Michele and her former fiancé Orlando Scandrick. On April 8, 2016, he was born in Burbank, California. As of 2023, he is six years of age. In addition, Michele announced her pregnancy with Jru and said,

“We are preparing for a Taurus baby. He’ll be the first Taurus in our family of four Aquarius and one Capricorn (almost Aquarius)!”

Jru Scandrick is the son of Draya and Orlando.
Jru was born in 2016.

Their son, however, was born an Aries, contrary to what they had anticipated. As a matter of fact, Draya gave birth to her first son at the age of 31.

His Birth Details

He weighed 6.5 pounds and was 20 inches long when he was born. His parents appeared to be really happy to welcome a new child into the family. Likewise, in an interview, Draya told,

“We are super excited to add our sixth member to the family. “He’s such a good, healthy baby and everyone is already infatuated with him. His brother and sisters are in love.”

Jru’s Siblings

Jru, who is 6 years old, has three half-siblings who are all older than him: Kniko Howard, Tatyana Scandrick, and Taylor Scandrick. Tatyana and Taylor were born from his father’s relationship, whilst Kniko was born from his mother’s prior union.

For the record, Draya, Jru’s mother, was just 17 years old when she gave birth to Kniko. In addition, Jru gets along well with all of his brothers and sisters, just like any sibling would. We hope they are able to stay like this forever.

Jru Scandrick’s Mom Was Inspired By Victoria Beckham

Victoria Beckham served as Draya Michele’s inspiration as she pursued her dreams of being a model and fashion designer. However, she had a rocky beginning as a model because of her thin frame. She sent her photos to numerous men’s publications hoping to be featured but was informed that her long neck made her look like a bird.

However, she persisted and was finally chosen for roles in music videos for artists like Kanye West, Usher, Nicki Minaj, The Game, and Jay-Z by a few editors, photographers, and directors.

She quickly rose to fame and began to feature in several male magazines, including Black Man, Show, XXL, and King. She joined the VH1 reality series Basketball Wives: LA in 2011, which helped establish her as a household celebrity in the United States.

She left the show in 2015 to launch her own clothing and swimsuit lines and establish herself as a successful entrepreneur. She believes that her ambition and business savvy has allowed her to succeed despite not having the conventional definition of beauty.

Jru’s Father Was An NFL Player

In Indianapolis, Indiana, Scandrick attended the NFL Scouting Combine. He finished most of the combined drills but skipped the short shuffle. Due to a thumb injury, Scandrick was unable to execute the bench press, but he was still able to boost his draft standing by placing fourth overall in the 40-yard dash. 

He participated at Boise State’s pro day on March 3, 2008, however, he opted to stand by his performance and solely run defensive back and coverage exercises. Scandrick was anticipated to be selected in the fourth round at the end of the pre-draft process. NFLDraftScout.com graded him as the 16th-best cornerback prospect in the draft. 

Jru Scandrick’s Parents’ Relationship

Although Michele and Scandrick, Jru’s parents, had an on-and-off relationship for a while, they are sadly no longer together. According to reports, the ex-couple started dating in 2014. In addition to this, by 2015, NFL Orlando had even proposed to her.

“He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn’t help but laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time.”

But regrettably, nothing was intended to remain forever. The ex-couple got separated in 2019, almost three years after the birth of their son Jru Scandrick. Draya announced the news in a post on Instagram in December 2019 where she wrote,

“I have been single the entire month of December. So if anyone has anything to say about me or the guy I used to be engaged to, save, it. We don’t care.”
