Happy birthday wishes go out to Glee star Naya Rivera (Santana), who hit the big 2-7 on January 12. And we love the way that her fiance, Big Sean, surprised her for the happy occasion. Stop and smell the roses!

Naya was looking as glam as ever on her 27th birthday with her newly blonde hair, as she went out for dinner to celebrate with Sean and several other pals, including Glee co-star Kevin McHale (Artie).

"Good food, good champs, best people. #birthdaygirl," Naya captions a photo (see below) of herself partying the night away with Kevin, choreographer Brittany Parks, Glee script coordinator Telly, and Sean. We're not sure if we approve of that hand gesture, Sean!

And one of Naya's pals, celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker, posted a photo (seen above) of Naya looking completely stunning on her birthday. "Birthday girl !!!!!! @nayarivera we love you  have a great night! You have never been more smoking hot than you are today!" Jo captions the pic. We agree!

One thing we do approve of is Sean's sweet birthday surprise for Naya, including placing rose petals in a heart shape by the fireplace. "Happy birthday to the queen," he captions the photo of his romantic birthday gift. 

It's great that Naya had such a special birthday, and we can't get enough of her cute friendship with Kevin. 2014 is poised to be a very big year for Naya, as she and Sean continue to plan their wedding, so we wish her all the best!

Are you surprised that more Glee stars weren't at her birthday dinner?
