It’s been a rough few months in the romance department for a lot of Glee stars. Lauren Potter and her bae called off their engagement. Charice and her longtime love broke up after YEARS of dating. And we can’t forget about how Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner got divorced. But one alum from the Fox hit is going through something much more positive — Matthew Morrison is going to be a dad!
People magazine confirms the news that the 38-year-old actor and his wife, Renee Puente, are expecting their first child together.
“I’m so excited, and I just want to be the best father I possibly can be,” Matthew told the mag.
The Good Wife star also said he’s “looking forward to everything” that will happen after the baby is born this fall.
He continued, “The fact that it’s half me and half the person that I love most in this world…I’m so excited to meet our child and to see what he or she looks like, and to see what features of my beautiful wife that he or she has.”
Congratulations to the new parents-to-be! We can’t wait to meet their little bundle of joy.
Unlike Matthew, these Glee stars waited until AFTER the show ended to get married:
The woman who brought Quinn Fabray to life on the small screen throughout the series' duration kept a relatively low profile when it came to her relationships (apart from when she dated I Am Number Four co-star Alex Pettyfer; she prob learned her lesson from that whole debacle). So, when word got out that she was engaged, people were shocked, especially since she only started dating her now-husband, Winston Marshall, in July 2015.
The 30-year-old actress and 28-year-old Mumford & Sons banjoist got engaged over the 2015 holidays, but the public didn't find out until late January 2016. And things moved quickly after that, as they tied the knot on October 15, 2016.
Brittany may've been more of a free spirit on Glee, until she tied the knot with Santana, but her real-life alter ego, Heather, has only had eyes for one person since she was a teenager.
The 29-year-old dancer and her now-husband, Taylor Hubbell, went to high school together, but reportedly didn't start dating until Taylor was playing college baseball. Since then, life has been one heck of an adventure: Heather gave birth to their first son, Elijah, in September 2013; they were engaged by August 2014; got married in May 2015; then had another bundle of joy, Owen, in February 2016. Aww.
Harry Shum Jr.
Mike Chang's livin' the dream IRL. Not only does he still get to show off his acting prowess — as fan-favorite Magnus Bane on Shadowhunters — but he walked down the aisle with his longtime love.
Though people didn't find out about his engagement to longtime love (of 6 years!) Shelby Rabara until March 2014, he actually popped the question in October 2013... in Hawaii. Sigh.
While that happened long before the series ended, they didn't get hitched until months after the finale, on November 22, 2015.
Melissa Benoist & Blake Jenner
Marley & Ryder's real-life counterparts hit it off instantly, starting a relationship practically when he arrived on set after his Glee Project win.
The two reportedly kicked off their coupledom in February 2012 — 9 months before his first episode ever aired — got engaged in July 2013 and TIED THE KNOT in late March 2015, around the time of the dramedy's final episode!
Sadly, the 28-year-old actress filed for divorce from her 24-year-old bae in December 2016.
Both of Becca's big moments with now-husband Zach Martin went down after the Fox hit wrapped up.
The 30-year-old blonde, who played Kitty Wilde on the show, and her entrepreneur man wasted no time before planning the big day. The two started dating in 2015, got engaged in May 2016, then put a ring on it on December 3, 2016.

You go, Becky Jackson! The 26-year-old blonde actress, who portrayed Sue Sylvester's student sidekick, throughout the duration of the program, accepted a promise ring from her childhood friend-turned-boyfriend, Timothy Spear, in August 2016 over a romantic picnic.
"He picked out the ring, made payments on it and then planned the picnic and the moment to get down on one knee to ask her to promise to be his one-and-only and marry him when they are ready," revealed Lauren's mother, Robin Sinkhorn. "Then they watched the sunset together." How cute is that?!

The latest Glee star to get down on one knee is the 30-year-old actor, who portrayed Rachel's love interest, Brody Weston, on the series from 2012-2013.
Dean was reportedly planning a proposal in Australia over the 2016 holidays, but his lady love, Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown co-star Jillian Murray, couldn't make it — so he popped the question after attending a Broadway play in December 2016.
When Idina was a part of the series, she was married to fellow performer Taye Diggs. But, after her time on Glee, as Rachel's biological mom, Shelby, the Rent co-stars divorced, and she moved on with another man.
The Broadway legend got engaged to another Rent co-star, Aaron Lohr, in April 2015, after they kicked off their relationship the year prior. No word yet on a wedding date.
