Glee actress Naya Rivera secretly married Ryan Dorsey in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on July 19. Reports also revealed that the wedding day was the original date when she was supposed to marry ex-boyfriend Big Sean.
Big Sean and Rivera ended their engagement three months ago. When Rivera and Big Sean called off their wedding, Big Sean’s rep said in a statement “After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off… Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately.”
Despite having the same marriage date, a source close to the newlyweds says that the date was chosen because it was Dorsey’s birthday. “July 19th is also Ryan’s birthday, making this an even more joyous occasion,” said the source.

Rivera and Dorsey met each other four years ago when Dorsey moved to Los Angeles after graduating from the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. Sources said that the marriage was a complete surprise even to Rivera’s friends, who did not even know that the actress was dating Dorsey. “The whole thing is a complete surprise,” said the source.

The couple told People, “We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife. Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for. True love always prevails.”
Rivera wore a Monique Lhullier lace wedding gown, while Dorsey sported a Dolce & Gabbana suit. A source said that Rivera’s gown “looks a lot like the one Kim married Kanye in.” Rivera also had hairstylist Clyde Haygood, Kim Kardashian’s hairstylist during her wedding, style her hair for her wedding as well.
Incidentally, Big Sean was also in Mexico at the time of Rivera’s wedding to Dorsey. He was recording with Kanye West.
