There’s not doubt about it: Valentine’s Day 2014 can’t have been an easy one for Lea Michele (Rachel). The Glee star lost her boyfriend Cory Monteith (Finn) unexpectedly this summer. So while everyone else is celebrating love, Lea is dealing with the reality that love, no matter how strong, can sometimes be taken away from you.
It’s been exactly seven months and one day since Cory’s death, and Lea has been very open about the fact that she’s not ready to date again quite yet. However, that doesn’t mean she’s spending Valentine’s Day alone.
The Glee star always makes sure to have a cheerful and upbeat attitude on Twitter, and February 14 was no different. “So thankful for my amazing friends and family today:) And all of you guys as well! Happy Valentine's Day everyone.” she tweeted.
Her dad, Marc, send her a special Valentine’s gift: a photo of a heart he drew in the snow. “My dad sent me this pic from snowy NYC today:) Seriously best dad ever. ❄️❄️❄️❄️” Lea tweeted. Ah, daddy-daughter Valentines. Too cute!
As for the title of Lea’s official Valentine, that goes to none other than her friend and beloved co-star, Chris Colfer (Kurt). The Glee star tweeted a photo of she and Chris filming a cute Hummelberry scene for an upcoming episode. “On the #Glee set with my valentine @chriscolfer :) #KurtandRachel #BFF” she tweeted.
Chris already has a Valentine, boyfriend Will Sherrod, but we’re glad to see he’s pulling double duty and being there for Lea on what has to be a very difficult day. They’re BFFs forever, on- and off-screen. And we can’t get enough of the cuteness!
