Naya Rivera’s Ex-husband, And Her Sister, Are Rumored To Move In Together In Order To Raise Her Son
On Monday, Naya Rivera’s sister, Nickayla Rivera, spoke about her support towards her 5-year old nephew, Josey, on an Instagram story, in spite of struggling with the “darkest time” of her life.
“In the darkest time of my life, the only thing that is important is my friends & family. Showing up for my nephew even though I can’t show up for myself,” the model, wrote. “Im not concerned with the ways things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure.”
“What matters most I’ve learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others and never take a moment for granted,” she continued. “I hope you all can do the same.”
The Glee star saved her son from drowning, before she herself disappeared in the water during a boat trip. Naya’s body was found in Lake Piru in Ventura, California, on July 13, five days after the accident.
According to The Daily Mail and Page Six, Ryan and Nickayla Rivera moved into a three-bedroom home together and were seen shopping for household items at a nearby Target. A source told the outlet, “They were fooling around and chatting the whole time. They’re obviously helping lift each other’s spirits.” It’s great these two can rely on each other and lean on their families to do what’s best for Josey.
Days after her death, Nickayla Rivera honored her sister in an Instagram post.
“Sister, There are no words to describe my love for you. Side by side or miles apart, our connection is infinite. Our bond is unbreakable. We were complete opposites, yet simultaneously the same. The yin to my yang. I never knew that by losing you, I would find so much of you in myself. I’ve never known a life without you in it & still can’t imagine it. My world is turned upside down. But through it all, everything we were, we are still. I’ll always look at you with the same eyes as I did when I was young. My shmaya, I’ll love you for eternity & miss you every second of my life.”
Ryan too, honored his ex-wife with a heartfelt post.
“I’m thankful for our times and our journey that brought us together and gave us the sweetest and kindest smart little boy we could ever hope for…I have hundreds and probably thousands of snaps and videos that Josey will have forever and know his momma loved him more than life, and how much fun we had together as he was growing up. Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us. He’ll never forget where he came from. We miss you. We will always love you. Love you Meep.”
