Jru Scandrick’s Birth Details
- Jru Scandrick was born on April 8, 2016, in Burbank, California.
- At the time of his birth, he weighed 6.5 lbs. and measured 20 inches long.
- Jru’s mother announced her second pregnancy during her 2nd trimester.
I’m not sure what made me decide to take a home pregnancy test, but I decided on taking two at the same time! They were both positive and I was instantly excited.
- While talking about her pregnancy, she also revealed the gender of the baby.
We made an appointment to see the sex of the baby for 16 weeks, but surprisingly at 12 weeks, our doctor was able to see that he (Jru) was a boy. Technology and ultrasound machines are much more advanced than 13 years ago when I had my first child.
- Jru Scandrick has three half-siblings from his parent’s previous relationships. They are Kniko Howard, Tatyana, and Taylor Scandrick.
- Tatyana and Taylor are from his father’s relationship and Kniko is from his mother’s previous relationship.
Parents are not Together Anymore
- Jru Scandrick’s parents, Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick started dating in 2013 but they split the following year.
- The duo reunited and got engaged in the same year.
- Orlando proposed to her with a $400,000 engagement ring.
He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn’t help but to laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time.
- In 2015, they called off their engagement in a mutual understanding.
After more than two years together, Orlando and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. Unfortunately, we both live very hectic lives making it difficult to spend the deserved time together. He is a great father and athlete and I will cherish the memories that we created.
- Post-divorce, Orlando had to get a restraining order against Draya because she once pepper-sprayed him and also threatened to throw bleach in his eyes.
