Glee star Naya Rivera and her actor husband Ryan Dorsey are preparing to become first-time parents.

The actress announced the happy news on her Tumblr blog on Tuesday night, posting photos of her and her husband as children, along with a graphic of a "bun in the oven".

She added the caption, "Surprise! We're having a baby! Ryan and I feel so blessed and can't wait to welcome the newest member of our family."

She also posted cute photos of the couple as young children. 

Rivera and Dorsey secretly wed in Mexico last July, three months after the actress ended her engagement to rapper Big Sean.

The baby news comes days after Rivera wrapped filming on the Golden Globe-winning program on Saturday.

Glee ends its six-season run in the US next month.
