Cory Monteith may just want to burst into a little song and dance. The Glee actor and girlfriend Lea Michele were spotted at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, Apr. 26, after Monteith completed of his month-long stint in rehab, and the pair both looked ecstatic to be back.

"Sending out big love to everyone," the 30-year-old actor tweeted. "Thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me!" Michele similarly expressed her gratitude for her fans' well wishes and tweeted excitedly shortly afterward: "Today is a great day 🙂 Love you all! Xo."

Both actors looked low-key in jeans and shades, and an eyewitness told E! News that the couple was "smiling the entire time." 

Earlier this month, Monteith announced his decision to take a temporary hiatus from work in order to seek treatment for a substance addiction, his rep told Us Weekly in a statement. Fellow castmembers and other A-list stars showed an outpouring of support for his decision.

"Cory is a beloved member of the Glee family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment," 20th Century Fox TV, which produces Glee, said in a statement. "Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return."

On-screen and off-screen pal Mark Salling similarly praised Monteith for his decision to get help.

"It takes balls … to go through that publicly. Period," the actor told Us in Las Vegas on Apr. 6. "It takes balls to go through that privately, but to go through it publicly like that — balls."
