It’s been nearly four months since Glee star Heather Morris gave birth to her first child, and now we finally have an update on the 26-year-old actress as she takes on her most important role.
E! News caught up with the new mom’s former costar Jenna Ushkowitz at Entertainment Weekly’s pre-SAG party held at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, Calif. on Friday, Jan. 17, where the Glee star opened up about Morris’ baby boy Elijah, whom the blond beauty welcomed into the world on Saturday, Sept. 28 with her longtime beau and high school sweetheart, Taylor Hubbell.
"It’s the Glee baby!" Ushkowitz adorably gushed with a gigantic smile. "And it’s so wonderful and she’s [Heather’s] just glowing. And she’s a mom!"
And when asked to describe Morris as a parent, Jenna had nothing but praise for her pal.
"Beautiful. She takes such good care of him," she shared before adding, "It just makes you so happy and that’s like our son, too."
No wonder little Elijah’s been nicknamed the Glee baby!
And of course we couldn’t help but ask Ushkowitz about Lea Michele’s crazy behind-the-scenes twitpic that she posted last week from Glee’s highly-anticipated 100th episode, where Jenna and Lea are both smiling from ear to ear…as Heather makes a silly face in typical Brittany S. Pierce fashion.
Do you think Jenna calls Dianna after every new script arrives and cries and cries and cries?
Because out of anyone, Dianna would understand.
Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera!
