In honor of what would have been Cory’s 33rd birthday on May 11, Lea posted a heartfelt message to her late love. Click to read Lea’s beautiful birthday tribute.
Cory Monteith’s former love Lea Michele, 28, remembered him on his special day in a sweet Twitter message. The Glee star’s birthday is today, May 11, and Cory would have been 33. It’s been nearly two years since Cory’s tragic and sudden death, and it’s still hard to imagine a world without him.
Lea Michele’s Cory Monteith Birthday Tribute: Her Loving Message
Lea shared a sweet photo of Cory on Twitter with the caption, “I know you’re serenading everyone right now…”
Excuse us while we go sob in a corner. Cory has that incredible smile on his face as he plays the drums, just like the good old days. What a perfect photo for an amazing guy. Lea is right — Cory is undoubtedly serenading everyone on his special day.
Even though Lea’s moved on with Matthew Paetz, 29, Cory will always hold a special place in her heart. She tweeted a loving message on the one-year anniversary of Cory’s death in July 2014. She also shared a message to Cory on his birthday last year.
After Cory’s death in July 2013, Glee was never the same. Finn and Rachel’s story was left forever unfinished. Lea and Cory fell in love on the set of the show, and when the show wrapped in Feb. 2015, Lea took an important piece of Glee memorabilia.
Lea decided to take Finn’s football jersey home with her for good. She posted an Instagram photo of herself walking off set with the jersey. She captioned the photo, “One last thing.”
Glee may have ended, but Finn and Rachel’s love story will live on forever.
