Naya Rivera’s Family Reacts To Wedding
Fans weren’t the only ones who were shocked about Naya and Ryan’s wedding. Ryan’s father, Arnold Dorsey, told the Daily Mail, that the family did know about the wedding, but were still shocked. “We knew about the wedding six weeks ago, still, it was a bit of a shock,” he said.
Arnold told the site, the couple, who wed on Ryan’s 31st birthday treated their guests to steak, shrimp, seabass and lobster as well as a selection of flatbreads. He even said that Naya had chosen Mexico as their wedding destination as a birthday present to her hubby — so sweet!
Ryan and Naya have been friends for years after meeting at a club, but according to Arnold, the two became more after Naya’s engagement ended. “He was a playboy, he didn’t want to settle down, he wanted to concentrate on his work. But they remained friends and I guess they hooked up after the engagement from Big Sean was dropped,” he said.
These two certainly are a beautiful couple and it’s great that they were friends first before realizing their true love for one another!
