Born on Jan. 12, 1987 in Valencia, Calif., Naya Rivera began her acting and modeling career as a baby, but her first acting gig was at four-years-old on The Royal Family, created by Eddie Murphy.
She appeared on various shows like Family Matters, The Bernie Mac Show, and CSI: Miami. But her most notable role is on Fox’s song-and-dance series Glee, starring as Santana Lopez, a snooty cheerleader in glee club.
Rivera, who previously dated Mark Salling, was engaged to rapper Big Sean from October 2013-April 2014. She then married Ryan Dorsey in July 2014 and they welcomed their first child together in September 2015. However, they separated and finalized their divorce in July 2018.
