Naya Rivera is a Quarter Century Old!

It’s an amazing week to be Naya Rivera!

The part-Boricua beauty turns 25 today – and she’s sizzling on the cover of this week’s TV Guide with some of her fellow Glee costars.

We absolutely love Rivera on the hit FOX show, in which she plays the role of Santana Lopez, a McKinley High cheerleader who recently came out as a young gay woman to her parents and abuelita on the show. Santana is both bitchy and hilarious – and we wouldn’t have her any other way

“Aaahh it's my birthday!” Rivera posted on her Twitter page earlier today. “Starting it off early with a dance rehearsal at Glee then off to shoot our last Michael number.” The post was, of course, re-tweeted by more than 100 of her adoring followers.

Right after, she thanked her fans for all the sweet birthday messages.
