The Cast of Glee Honor Late Costar Naya Rivera on Her 34th Birthday: "We Miss You"
Glee stars are paying tribute to Naya Rivera on what would have been her 34th birthday. On Wednesday, the series alum took to social media to reminisce on some of their favorite memories with the late actress. "Happy birthday, 🐝," Kevin McHale captioned a throwback snap of the Glee squad uniting at Naya's birthday party in 2011. "No one else could get us to be this messy in public." Heather Morris, who played Naya's wife on Glee, also shared an emotional message on Instagram, calling her "my angel."
Naya died by accidental drowning in California's Lake Piru back in July. Her loved ones have continued to honor her life and legacy since her passing, posting sweet photos from their time together. Weeks after Naya's death, Heather even shared an emotional video of her dancing to the singer's 2019 track "Radio Silence." Look ahead to see the Glee stars' heartfelt birthday tributes to Naya.
Heather shared a throwback Instagram photo of her and Naya attending an Emmy nominee party in 2010, writing, "Happy Birthday my angel. I can't write a sappy monologue because it's just too hard...but I love you and I can't describe how much I miss you."

Amber shared a snapshot from her August Jimmy Kimmel Live performance tribute to Naya, adding: "A little update Naya, earth is REALLY ghetto now!!! Still, I miss you so very much and I wish you were here. There hasn't been a day where you don't cross my mind, and when you do, I take a moment of silence to remember all the beautiful moments we got to spend together. I'm listening to Amy Winehouse, sippin wine, and eating a very fancy charcuterie in your honor today (don't worry, I'm checking on mom). HAPPY HEAVENLY BIRTHDAY ANGEL."
"Happy birthday, 🐝. No one else could get us to be this messy in public," Kevin captioned a picture from Naya's 2011 birthday celebration.
