Squeal! Naya Rivera posed on the cover of Fit Pregnancy and Baby with her son, Josey, and he’s the cutest, smiliest little guy.

The Glee alum, 29, welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Dorsey in September, and he’s clearly ready for the spotlight.

“You’re always going to wonder if you’re doing things wrong, but that’s what it means to be a mom, to care so much about someone else that you just want to be as perfect as possible,” Rivera told the magazine for their May 2016 cover story.

Perfection wasn’t Rivera’s focus when she was pregnant. “I completely let myself go … Weight wasn’t something I wanted to focus on, so I ate anything and everything and had a blast,” the first-time mom recalled. “Afterward, I was like, ‘Let’s get back to business.’”

To lose the 60 pounds she gained while pregnant, Rivera dropped all sugary snacks, breastfed and started doing low-impact exercises. She also invested in a trainer and got to work.

“I know I’m lucky. Not all moms can afford one,” she concluded. “But I’m not really self-motivated. And I don’t know what to do at the gym. I always feel lost. [Without a trainer] I’d probably just end up not working out, and then go to the steam room. … I was wearing maternity gear while working my butt off.”
