They told People at the time: "We are so excited to be married and grateful to be surrounded by our friends and family.

"And most of all, we're so happy to spend the rest of our lives together."

Lea - who rose to fame in Glee as the lead female role Rachel Berry - initially hinted that she wanted to press pause on having children in order to concentrate on her acting career.

In a previous interview with US Weekly, she said: "I'm still playing roles that are under 21, so I kind of want to push that as long as I can.

But life clearly had other plans, with Lea falling pregnant not long after getting hitched.

Tragedy struck in the midst of her pregnancy with the untimely death of the Glee actress's former co-star Naya Rivera at 33 in July.
