Congratulations to Naya Rivera, who has become a first-time mother! The former Glee star and her husband Ryan Dorsey have welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world.

It sounds like Naya, 28, has managed to keep her baby news a secret for a while, as the actress gave birth last month.

Multiple sources confirmed the arrival to Us Weekly, with one saying: "They are so excited to be first-time parents. It was a very easy pregnancy and birth."

Ryan Dorsey and Naya Rivera married in secret last year

"Naya was born to be a mother and is doing really great so far," another source said. "And Ryan has amazing paternal instincts and has been waiting on them both hand and foot."

The couple married in July 2014 on the beach of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Naya, who had just broken off her engagement to rapper Big Sean three months prior, said "I do" in front of just 12 guests.

The bride wore a bespoke lace gown by Monique Lhuillier that featured romantic long sleeves and an open back.

Naya and Ryan, who had been friends for four years, married on the actor's 31st birthday on 19 July, which was incidentally the same date she had chosen to wed her former fiancé.

Seven months into their secret wedding, the American beauty, who is best known for playing cheerleader Santana on Glee, took to Instagram to announce that she was expecting.

Posting a 'bun in the oven' image with a link to a message on her personal website, Naya wrote: "Surprise! We're having a baby. Ryan and I feel so blessed and can't wait to welcome the newest member of our family."

"It was a very easy pregnancy and birth," a second insider added

Naya has yet to comment on her baby news on social media. Some of her latest pictures show the actress flaunting her burgeoning bump during a photoshoot, while others were taken at her baby shower. For the special event, Naya was presented with a cake in the shape of her favourite childhood book Love You Forever.

"We were blown away by how beautiful our cake for the baby shower was! @hansencakes turned my favourite childhood book into a sweet treat!" she wrote.
