A Glee-ful arrival! Naya Rivera has given birth to a baby boy, her first child with husband Ryan Dorsey, multiple sources reveal exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. The couple welcomed their new arrival last month in L.A.
“They are so excited to be first-time parents,” one insider tells Us of the Glee alum, 28, and her actor hubby, 32. “It was a very easy pregnancy and birth.”
Pals say that parenthood has been a breeze, too. “Naya was born to be a mother and is doing really great so far,” the source says. “And Ryan has amazing paternal instincts and has been waiting on them both hand and foot.”
The singer-actress and her husband of one year first announced her pregnancy via Instagram this past April. “Surprise! We’re having a baby! Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family,” Rivera wrote in the post, on top of an adorable throwback photo of herself and her hubby as kids.
The star kept her fans updated on her pregnancy on her personal website, blogging about her body’s changes, and offering tips to other pregnant moms-to-be.
During her second trimester, Rivera was especially excited about how she could share her baby’s growth with Dorsey. “There is one thing about the second trimester that makes it all worthwhile: Those first real kicks from your baby,” Rivera blogged. “I will never forget the moment Ryan felt the baby kick for the first time. It truly was one of those precious memories I will have forever.”
The new parents married in a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in July 2014, three months after Rivera ended her engagement to rapper Big Sean.
