It's the season for love and Naya Rivera's whirlwind romance has led her to become engaged to Big Sean, just six months after dating!

Glee actress Naya Rivera is gleefully engaged to her rapper beau Big Sean!

Rivera's representative has confirmed to Just Jared that the engagement is official and that the pair are clearly in love and have taken their romance to the next level after just six months of dating.

We love Rivera for her role as cheerleader Santana Lopez and we are so excited that her relationship in her real life is more successful than those of her character — although, we will see her engaging in a steamy kiss with "Heart Attack" singer Demi Lovato this season.

If you thought that it was just regular people who meet online, then you are wrong. The couple originally met online through Twitter after the "Dance" hit-maker sent the Latina beauty a message.

Rivera previously revealed to Access Hollywood how the relationship all began, saying, "I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, 'I'm a fan.' I tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention. We went to dinner and the rest is history."

The couple made their relationship public in April after they attended an after party in Los Angeles together, for the biopic 42. Since then, they have been inseparable and if Rivera's engagement ring is anything to go by, the wedding is set to be a beautiful and lavish occasion.

The Glee star posted an image on Instagram of herself with a very beautiful piece of bling on her finger, which she captioned "Latina #ladymoment."


Congratulations to the happy couple!
