Naya Rivera--best known for her role as Santana Lopez on the hit TV show Glee--is expecting her first baby with husband Ryan Dorsey. Dorsey plays the role of Earl on the FX show Justified.

Rivera and Dorsey met about five years ago, but didn't go public with their relationship until Naya officially split up with rapper Big Sean back in April of 2014. The couple got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in July of 2014.

Naya Rivera was very creative when it came to announcing her pregnancy. She started with a post on her Instagram account that directed followers to her website.

The photo itself, however, was a dead a giveaway.

“Ryan and I feel so blessed and can’t wait to welcome the newest member of our family,” Naya Rivera wrote.

In a strange coincidence, the news about Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey's baby-to-be came on the same day that Big Sean released his latest album.

Big Sean and Naya Rivera made news recently when she accused the ‘I Don’t Fu*k With You’ singer of having stolen her Rolex. It's uncertain if that issue was ever resolved.

It will be interesting to see what Naya Rivera does for work in the coming months. Filming for the final season of Glee ended last weekend, with its final episode airing in March.
