Cory Monteith would have turned 32 years old on Sunday. To honor her late boyfriend, Lea Michele took to Twitter to share sweet words and a happy memory. "The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so. Happy Birthday," she tweeted. The accompanying photo shows Cory smiling and looking down as Lea laughs and covers her mouth with her hand. On Friday, Cory's mom, Ann McGregor, reflected on the day she gave birth to her son. "Maybe it is a blessing that Cory's birthday is on Mother's Day," she tweeted.

It's been nearly 10 months since Cory's sudden death. At her Louder album listening party in March, Lea discussed channeling her emotions into her new music. "A lot of people don't know how to touch this situation. It's like walking on eggshells. So I felt 'Cannonball' was the perfect first single, because it kinda puts it all out there. It's, like, this is really hard. We're not denying that it's hard. We're going to get through it."
