While Naya Rivera is a happy mother now, she has revealed that she once terminated a pregnancy in her days on Fox’s Glee.
Rivera, who is gearing up for the release of her tell all Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, opened up about the process in an excerpt in the Sept. 5. Issue of People magazine.
“It’s not something a lot of people talk about. But they should,” she said. She was dating her now husband Ryan Dorsey when she terminated the pregnancy back in 2010. “But I hope someone out there gets something out of it.”
She revealed she Dorsey did not even know about the child back then. Now, they have an 11-month-old son after getting married in a secret wedding back in 2014.
Rivera also opened up about her struggle with anorexia.
“I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff. I had no way of knowing it was going to get worse.”
She said she would go as far as throwing away the lunches her mother would pack for her.
“I was juggling my feelings and it makes me sad that there are girls still going throught hat 15 years after I went through it.”
Rivera, who was engaged to Big Sean just before tying the knot with Dorsey, added on Twitter this week, “I set out to write a book that was true to myself and would hopefully help others along the way. Media will always distort anything. I hope that you all enjoy my story and respect my good intentions in sharing them with you.”
