Naya Rivera Engaged To Big Sean
Naya Rivera announced her engagement to rapper Big Sean after a six month courtship.
A rep for the Glee star, who is currently working on the show's fifth season, has confirmed. She showed off her engagement ring at the Latina magazine’s Hollywood Hot List Party and confirmed the news hours later.
Jeweler Shari Fabrikant told the Hollywood Reporter that he believes Rivera's ring is a “Platinum and Diamond Micro Pave Ring," that it is approximately 5-6 carats, and that it could retail for between $50,000 and $125,000. However, jewelry expert Michael O'Connor told E! News another estimation – he believes that the ring is around four carats, and would sell for about $70,000. Either way, the large engagement ring sparkles brightly on Rivera's finger.
Last month Rivera, 26, dished about her modern romance with Big Sean, 25 – the two met through Twitter. “I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, ‘I’m a fan.’ I Tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention,” she told Access Hollywood. “We went to dinner and the rest is history.”
The couple made their first public debut in April, when they attended the premiere of 42 together. Since then, they have not been shy about showing off their affection for each other, on Twitter and elsewhere. "Every morning I wake up, I look over at her and be like, 'I'm winning so hard,'" Big Sean once told E! News.
Last month Rivera dropped her first single "Sorry," with a cameo from her now-fiancé. The song seems to be directed at an ex-girlfriend of the rapper who has had negative things to say about the singer. "I don’t really know much about ya/ But it’s clear you know my name …. If you used to be the one/ Well I don’t know s**t about it/ But I know you mad about it," Rivera sings.
Rivera has previously dated Glee costar Mark Salling and Glee writer Matthew Hodgson.
