For those of you who followed "Glee," you're probably wondering what happened to them and where they are now. Today, we take a look at the real-life partners and delve into their love life.


As with all productions, the "Glee" cast had their fair share of bromances, dramas, and breakups. Though the characters on the show seemed to have dated everyone, let's see how their real-life romances panned out.

Dianna Argon as Quinn Fabray

Dianna Agron made headlines in the tabloids back in 2016 when she married Mumford & Sons musician, Winston Marshall Argon without even letting the public know.

These two have been in love since the summer of 2015 when they were seen walking hand-in-hand down the streets just a year ago.


After Quinn debuted her engagement ring from her now hubby during the London Fashion Week, the actress and her musician-half have said to have completed their vows in Morocco.

Before these two tied the knot, she had dated many stars, and the list is actually shocking. Some of these lucky guys included Dave Franco, Nicholas Hoult, and Sebastian Stan.

Naya Rivera as Santana Lopez

Naya Rivera's relationship with Big Sean ended in a huge scandal. Naya claims she found him at home with his future girlfriend, Adriana Grande, and broke off their engagement over the internet.


Shortly after, Naya surprised with marriage to Ryan Dorsey, and the couple soon welcomed a son, Josey. Sadly, tragedy followed.

While Naya and Dorsey's marriage didn't work out, the actress was happily single and spending time with her son when she drowned while saving his life during a trip out on a boat on Lake Piru on July 8, 2020.

Heather Morris as Brittany S. Pierce

Heather Morris's love life is not in the media as much these days. She is married to Taylor Hubbell who was actually her longtime boyfriend.


Their relationship started back in high school but was put on hold when she decided to pursue an acting career in California. She attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and they got back together.

Hubbell then moved from Louisiana to LA to be with Morris. That was such a romantic thing to do. Shortly after the couple welcomed their first son Elijah; they had their second, Owen, three years later.

Leah Michelle as Rachel Berry

Many fans know that Rachel not only dated Finn on screen but also in real life. Leah Michelle and Cory Monteith had been dating since the show first began. In 2012, they officially became a couple.


Who knew that a few years later, something tragic would happen, and Cory was found dead in a hotel room on July 13, 2013. He struggled with substance abuse for most of his adult life, and it started at the age of thirteen.

Five years later, Leah finally found happiness with Zandi Reich. They began dating in 2017, and Zandi proposed in April the following year. In March 2019, the couple tied the knot in California.

Jonathan Groff as Jesse St. James

For those of you who had a crush on this handsome fella, we have some sad news. Jonathan Groff is openly gay. However, we don't know the status of his current relationship.


Three years after his coming out, he got into a relationship with Zachary Quinto, and the duo was seen together many times. This seemed to be going perfectly, but sadly, they only lasted until mid-2013.

Jonathan then got involved with the filmmaker and choreographer, Corey Baker, and the couple is said to still be together.
