Yesterday, pop star Demi Lovato had her first day at work on Glee. Today, we already have the first photo of her Season 5 character, Dani... and she’s already cosying up to her new love interest, Santana (Naya Rivera).

On August 29, Naya posted the very first look at Demi’s Glee character with this adorable Instagram photo. The cute snap shows Dani and Santana leaning in close, and Dani is just inches away from planting a kiss on Santana’s cheek!

Fancy. @ddlovato #goodside #dantana?” she wrote. Demi quickly responded, “I ship it...” followed by a heart two winky-face emoticons with their tongues sticking out.

We love how excited the girls are about their characters’ new romance. Obviously, no one could ever take the place of Brittany (Heather Morris) in our hearts. But since Heather Morris’ pregnancy is keeping her from Glee, we’d say that Demi is a pretty awesome choice for Santana’s new love!

What do you think about the new couple? And what are your thoughts on Dantana as their ‘ship name? We think it’s cute, but we also think Sani has a nice ring to it. Only time — and fan consensus on the Internet — will tell for sure which name will win out in the end.
