Glee star Naya Rivera has wed actor Ryan Dorsey in Mexico just three months after ending her engagement to rapper Big Sean.
The actress married Dorsey, who has enjoyed roles in Parks and Recreation and Southland, on 19 July (14) in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in an intimate ceremony in front of a small group of family members.
Rivera wore a Monique Lhuillier gown and carried a bouquet of daisies as they exchanged vows, according to People.com.
The couple says in a statement, "We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife... Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for."
The nuptials come as a surprise for fans as speculation about the pair's romance only surfaced this month (Jul14).
The couple has reportedly been friends since they met four years ago and they began dating after Rivera's engagement to rapper Big Sean ended in April (14).

Members of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) have urged Hollywood bosses to step up the number of gay characters in films amid fears the community is woefully under-represented in movies.
GLAAD bosses have released their second annual Studio Responsibility Index in which they analyse the number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) characters seen on screen.
They suggest that out of 102 major films released last year (13), only 17 included gay characters, and the advocacy group's members have also singled out a number of movies for particular criticism over their depiction of the LGBT community.
The report targets Mark Wahlberg's thriller Pain & Gain for featuring a gay priest who is beaten up, and The Hangover Part III, which is branded offensive for the inclusion of potentially-gay character Mr. Chow as a "walking joke".
GLAAD national spokesman Will Cruz says, "What's disheartening for me and to all of us in GLAAD is when it comes to major studio films, LGBT people are basically invisible. And when we do show up, it's largely a part of comedies as caricatures to service a joke that's at the expense of the character... There seems to be this vicious circle, where studios saying they weren't getting scripts that were inclusive, while writers were telling us the studios weren't interested in making films (with) LBGT (people) in them."
Elvis Presley's ex-wife Priscilla has pleaded with the superstar's fans to "please calm down" after reports suggested two jets previously owned by the King were set to be removed from the grounds of his Graceland home. Estate officials at the Memphis, Tennessee mansion were recently said to have asked the current owners of the Lisa Marie and the Hound Dog II to find a new home for the planes as they were exercising their option to end a 30-year agreement to keep them at the Graceland tourist attraction.
The news sparked outrage among some devotees, who complained about the removal online, but now Priscilla Presley has spoken out about the situation, insisting they are still trying to work out a deal with owners at OKC Partnership in Memphis to keep the jets at Graceland.
In a post on her Facebook.com page, Priscilla writes, "please calm down, we're in the midst of negotiations."
Bosses at Elvis Presley Enterprises, who operate the venue, installed the planes at Graceland in the mid-1980s.
The Hound Dog II was previously owned by Hustler magazine boss Larry Flynt.
Actress Jessica Alba has opened up about her sadness following the death of her Into The Blue co-star Paul Walker last year (13). Hollywood was stunned in November (13) when it emerged the actor had been killed in a horrific car smash in California aged 40.
Now Alba, who teamed up with Walker on their 2005 sea disaster movie, has spoken out to pay tribute to the down-to-earth star.
In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, she says, "He had a real childlike innocence and he was game to try anything or do anything. He treated everyone with respect and love.
"He was never treating anybody differently because of who they were. He was really a guy's guy. And loved his daughter so much and talked about her all the time. He never cared about Hollywood. He never cared about the hype."
Production has recently wrapped on Fast & Furious 7, with Walker's unfinished scenes being completed by his two brothers.
Knocked Up actress Katherine Heigl contemplated turning her back on Hollywood for good after her screen reputation was torn apart in a brutal magazine article last year (13).
The former Grey's Anatomy star hit headlines in September (13) when she became the subject of a highly-critical profile in The Hollywood Reporter, with industry sources claiming she was difficult to work with and "not worth" the hassle. Insiders who had previously worked with Heigl also accused her of constantly bringing up "wardrobe issues" and "questioning the script every single day".
The actress, who was on hiatus from acting when the article was published, refused to issue a rebuttal statement, and instead continued to lay low, but now she has opened up about how hurt she was by the unexpected attack. In an interview with Britain's Marie Claire magazine, she says, "The thing that was my best friend for a long time (my career) suddenly turned on me. And I didn't expect it. I was taken by surprise and angry at it for betraying me."
Heigl admits the backlash prompted her to reconsider a planned return to acting and she admits she came close to quitting for good to live a simple life with her singer husband Josh Kelley and their two young daughters, Naleigh and Adalaide. She explains, "I had a moment where, I don't know, I was thinking I'd maybe open a knitting store, get my money out of retirement accounts and live off that, live off the land. I had my moment where it all seemed so complicated and all I wanted to do was simplify."
The actress accepts she probably wore out her stay in Hollywood by taking on too many romantic comedies, like film flops The Ugly Truth and Life as We Know It, because she just "couldn't say no", but she insists she's learned her lesson and now she's excited to be stepping back into the spotlight with new independent film Jenny's Wedding and TV drama series State of Affairs.
She adds, "There's a part of me that's a Hollywood animal as well. I can't wait to get into the writer's room and see how we do this. I feel like I'm finally rolling into the next phase of my adulthood."
Graceland officials have asked the current owner of Elvis Presley's planes to remove them from the grounds of his home in Memphis, Tennessee. The Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II will no longer be among the attractions at the Graceland estate from April, 2015.
Bosses at Elvis Presley Enterprises, who operate the Graceland tourist attraction, have written to the planes' owners at OKC Partnership in Memphis, revealing they are exercising their option to end a 30-year agreement to house the jets that the King once owned.
The two planes have been a tourist attraction since the mid-1980s.
The Hound Dog II was previously owned by Hustler magazine boss Larry Flynt.
Magic Mike hunk Joe Manganiello has set his sights on romancing newly-single Sofia Vergara because he's convinced the "feisty" actress would be a great match for his "passionate" personality.
The actor, who has just been voted People magazine's Hottest Bachelor, has been single since splitting from fiancee Audra Marie in 2011, and although he has since been linked to French cabaret dancer Veronique Lazoore and model Bridget Peters, he admits he is still looking for 'The One'.
He tells the publication, "I'm at my best when I have someone to wake up next to and come home to. I know she's out there." Manganiello, who is part Sicilian, reveals he is looking for a woman who can handle his "hot-blooded" and "passionate" personality, stating, "If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you. I like hugs and kisses and snuggling. I'm a physical person. If you're not, then it ain't gonna (sic) work. Also, passive-aggressive and sarcastic does not work for me. It's such a turn-off."
Discussing his ideal woman, he says, "Girls that do squats. I love a butt. Sofia Vergara, that's it. She's got that Latin thing going. She's got the butt, she's got curves, she's got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous. And she's feisty!"
And Manganiello insists any potential partner will have to be able to "keep up" with his crazy lifestyle. He explains, "I haven't met someone who can keep up. For somebody to have her own identity and maturity, and then to be available enough or adventurous enough to pack a suitcase, grab a passport and take off with me for a year or two, takes a very special person. You wonder, 'Is this person going to be able to handle this big life...?'"
"Sometimes I sit in my house and I look at how far I've come in life, and it's always so much better when you have somebody to share that with."
Manganiello has a shot at dating Vergara - she split from her fiance Nick Loeb in May (14).
British actress Gemma Arterton is moving on from her marriage split by striking up a new romance with French director Franklin Ohanessian. The former Bond girl separated from Italian businessman Stefano Catelli in 2013 after less than three years of marriage, and she later admitted to Britain's Marie Claire magazine that she had never been sure about walking down the aisle.
Arterton is now enjoying a new relationship, and she showed off her partner at the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London on Saturday (28Jun14).
The pair was spotted kissing and cuddling as they watched the action on court.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "Franklin doesn't like or really want to be in the limelight, but yes, we are together. We met when I was filming (2014 film) The Voices and hit it off. We speak in French and I regularly commute to Paris to be with him."

This is the first child for the couple, who wed in November, 2011.
The funnyman confirmed reports he was set to become a father in March (14), when he told former SNL castmate-turned-U.S. chat show host Seth Meyers, "I'm about to be a daddy! That's right! Papa Kenan.
