The surprise nuptials came only three months after Rivera broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean.
The brand new couple told People, “We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple told PEOPLE exclusively. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for.”
Here’s what you need to know about her husband.
1. He’s an Actor

The caption of the happy image was, “Ready for another crazy day – working w/ & learning from the #legends #MelGibson & #DiegoLuna.”
His resume on imdb also includes TV roles in shows like Parks and Rec, Mob City, and Southland.

2. He’s Been Friends With Naya for 4 Years
Rivera posted the above Instagram picture with the caption, “Hey haters!!!” a few days ago while the couple was horseback riding on the beach.
The couple cleaned up nicely, with Rivera wearing a white Monique Lhuillier lace long-sleeved wedding gown and Dorsey dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana suit on their big day.
3. He Went to Drama School
Similar to Rivera’s character, Santana, on Glee, Dorsey moved to New York City to pursue acting.

According to People, the ceremony took place on the beach with just close family and friends in attendance.
The marriage surprised Hollywood, especially since people didn’t even know they were dating. Although media outlets did report the couple was spending time in Cabos San Lucas this past weekend, there was no mention of a wedding.
In fact, Us Weekly reported that the couple was on a “sexy getaway” on July 21.
The headline of their article was, “Naya Rivera Dating Actor Ryan Dorsey? Her Sexy Getaway After Big Sean Split.”
On July 22, the Daily Mail published pictures of Rivera posing for her man as he snapped a photo. They refer to their excursion as “holidaying.”
5. He Pretended He Was Single in May
This tweet he sent on May 5- with a shout out to newly single Adriana Lima- gave the impression that the actor was single.
Soooo @AdrianaLima is single someone tells me? Oh Hi, A. You don't know me. But one day you will. creepy? I say clairvoyant.
