Ryan Dorsey shared a heartfelt message in honor of his late ex-wife Naya Rivera, on what would have been her 34th birthday.
The former Glee actress was found dead in Southern California’s Lake Piru in July last year, after accidentally drowning while out with their son, Josey Dorsey.
“Just as surreal as it is real that you’re gone,” the 37-year-old shared on Instagram, alongside a picture of them with their five-year-old son Josey.
“If that makes sense, but none of this still makes any sense … 34,” he continued.
“I could just hear you saying ‘Ah, I’m old AF now!’ Ha … Rest easy old lady …”
Ryan Dorsey was reportedly spotted weeping at Naya’s grave at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills yesterday.
Naya’s former Glee cast-mates also marked the special occasion with some heartfelt tributes on social media…
“Happy Birthday my angel,” Heather Morris wrote on Instagram, alongside a black and white picture of the two of them together.
“I can’t write a sappy monologue because it’s just too hard…but I love you and I can’t describe how much I miss you..”
“Happy birthday, babe. Miss you,” Chris Colfer wrote.
Kevin McHale shared a picture of some of the Glee cast giving Naya a birthday cake, with the comment, “Happy birthday. No one else could get us to be this messy in public.”
Chord Overstreet shared the same picture on his Instagram Story, with the caption, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY @nayarivera we sure do miss you a lot down here.”
