Glee‘s Heather Morris gave birth to a son, Elijah, on Saturday.
The baby’s father is Morris’s boyfriend, Taylor Hubbell, a former baseball player for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, whom she met in high school in Arizona.
“We went to high school together, and then he MySpace messaged me like a stalker,” she told Billy Bush on Access Hollywood. “Yeah, he MySpaced me. He was like ‘So, you wanna hang out when you come back for Thanksgiving?’ He was in Arizona. And then we just started dating like, long distance.”
“I want to marry him so bad,” Heather says. “That’s what I really care about. I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won’t continue doing it.”
Glee fans interested in a reprise of the Brittany-Santana (aka Brittana) relationship won’t get their wish, as Morris will not return to the show this season. Heather’s dancing skills and quirky humor made Brittany one of the most enjoyable parts of the show, and she will definitely be missed in the cast. Best wishes to her and to Taylor on Elijah’s arrival.
