On The Glee Project last night, mentor Nikki Anders said she thinks Blake Jenner is most vocally talented male contender left on the show, and then the 19 year-old Miami native was one of the first to be called back for next week.

But in real life, Blake had a totally different reason to be celebrating last night: It was his girlfriend, Maria’s birthday.

In the late afternoon on July 24, Blake took to Twitter to wish his lady all the best on her big day. “Happy birthday to my girlfriend! I hop[e] to make this birthday your best one yet! @marialebelt” he wrote.

@Blake_Jenner thank you for everything babe!! I love youuuu!!!” Maria quickly tweeted back.

Though Blake and Maria are both currently living in L.A., the two have been together since they were high schoolers in Miami.

Unfortunately, Blake had both an Oxygen network event with his Glee Project cast and an interview with Kind Mac Radio to do that night. Still, based on his tweet, it sounds like he and Maria still made time to celebrate, too.

So how did Maria celebrate her big day, anyway? Based on what she wrote about on Twitter, the day involved “birthday shopping,” an “awesome birthday dinner,” and watching Blake’s episode of The Glee Project, of course!
