Bottoms up! Glee star Blake Jenner (Ryder) has turned the big 2-1, and he celebrated with some members of the Glee family — including his rumored fiancee, Melissa Benoist (Marley). Are these two the cutest or what?
Blake reached the milestone age on August 27, and Glee casting director and Glee Project mentor Robert Ulrich shared an Instagram photo of a small group of people celebrating with Blake on his big day. “Happy 21st Birthday @Blake_Jenner — great dinner — GREAT family!” Robert captioned the photo.
We think it’s pretty darn adorable that Blake is still so close with Robert — who met Blake long before he had even auditioned for Glee Project. And we love that Robert apparently got to meet the actor’s fam. In fact, not every Hollywood star would choose to ring in his 21st birthday with family, but we suppose that’s just one more reason why we love Blake so much.
Of course, the most interesting aspect of the photo is the fact that his face could not physically get any closer to Melissa’s. Seriously, those are two very close faces. Blake and Melissa — who herself turns 25 next month — still have yet to confirm their engagement, but they certainly look like they could not possibly be more in love.
So we hope you had a stellar birthday, Blake! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Ryder and Marley in Season 5. And we also hope you saved us some cake.
