Naya Rivera and her husband Ryan Dorsey are expecting their first baby together, seven months after their surprise wedding. The 28-year-old actress shared the happy news with a sweet announcement on Instagram, posting a 'bun in the oven' image, with a link to a message on her personal website.
"Surprise! We're having a baby. Ryan and I feel so blessed and can't wait to welcome the newest member of our family," she wrote, sharing an adorable throwback photo of herself and her husband as children.

Glee star Naya and 31-year-old actor Ryan – who plays Earl on US drama series Justified – met nearly five years ago but kept their relationship strictly platonic until Naya and rapper Big Sean ended their engagement in April 2014.
Just a few months later they tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in front of a small group of family and friends. Their 19 July nuptials took place on the same day of her planned wedding to Big Sean, who is now dating pop star Ariana Grande.

The bride walked down the aisle wearing a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown. She carried a bouquet of daisies and baby's breath. Ryan, meanwhile, wore a Dolce and Gabanna suit, and the couple exchanged Neil Lane wedding rings.
"We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife," the Dorseys told US Weekly at the time. "Our special day was fated and everything we could have asked for. True love always prevails."
Naya, who has been a frequent guest on US chat show The View this year, recently signed on to join the cast of TV comedy drama Devious Maids, now that Glee is coming to an end. Her husband, meanwhile, can next be seen in the Mel Gibson action film Blood Father.
