Naya Rivera is bravely opening up about two big parts of her past – an abortion she had while filming Glee and her battle with anorexia as a teen.
The 29-year-old actress talks about her life and struggles in her new memoir titled “Sorry Not Sorry,” which will be released on September 13.
Naya says she became pregnant with now husband Ryan Dorsey‘s child in late 2010 and she found out about the pregnancy just weeks after they broke up. She didn’t tell him at the time, but she aborted the child during her one day off from filming Glee.
“It was very scary to open up about it,” Naya told People. “It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the Hell?’ But I hope someone out there gets something out of it.”
Naya and Ryan are now the parents of an 11-month-old son named Josey, who she opes will read the book one day. “I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face. And hopefully he’ll think I’m cool as hell,” she said.
In the book, Naya also opens up about battling anorexia as a teen. Read that excerpt on People.com.
“So much love from everyone about Issues!” Katie wrote. “These beautiful girls and I are having a blast shooting this pilot! Keeping our fingers and toes crossed that we get to bring you all a full season so you can meet these incredible characters! Thank you for all the loving messages!!”
“I recently reached a stage in my style when I decided I was just going to really go for it,” Kiernan wrote for Teen Vogue. “What people think no longer matters to me. I just want to enjoy myself. This mindset has made me so excited about fashion and so excited about taking risks. I’m having more fun than ever with how I dress, and I’m learning so much about my personal aesthetic along the way.”
The 29-year-old Awkward star took to Instagram where she hinted that she will wed fiance Alexander Noyes in the near future.
“So @aimeecarrero and @mistertimrock made this fake background to get married in front of and they let me and my hot best friend take a picture in front of it!!!” Molly captioned a gorgeous photo with Alex, which you can see below. “Thanks, guys!!!
