Lea Michelle and her boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, are celebrating one year together this week, and the former Glee actress shared some sweet photos on Instagram to commemorate the occasion.
Michelle and Paetz met on the set of her music video “On My Way”, one year after she lost boyfriend and former costar Cory Monteith. The couple later moved in together and have shared moments from their relationship on social media.
“They are really happy and they make a great team,” a source told People.
The duo are often spotted hiking together in the hills that surround L.A. and aren’t shy about showing affection when they’re out in public, such as when they attended a Justin Timberlake concert last fall.
“They were super sweet and affectionate, taking selfies together and hanging out with a group of friends,” a source said.
Michelle spoke recently about what it meant to her to spend time with the Glee cast as the show came to an end earlier this year, saying that certain performances will always stand out to her when she thinks back to old episodes.
“I will always remember the pilot episode. Singing “Don’t Stop Believing” with the original kids. That will be forever frozen in my mind. Everything from then on was just this whole sort of spinning,” she said.
Although Glee just wrapped as a series, Michelle isn’t taking a break; she’ll appear next on American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy’s new show, Scream Queens.
“My character is so different than anything you’ve ever seen me do before. You won’t see me or Rachel Berry anywhere in there…When I went on my first day, no one even recognized me. This is like my Charlize Theron in Monster moment,” Lea Michelle told Entertainment Tonight.
