That's because the "Glee" actress and aspiring recording artist is engaged to her rapper boyfriend, Big Sean, her rep confirmed to omg!.
The 26-year-old abtastic beauty showed off her gorgeous new engagement ring at Latina magazine's Hollywood Hot List party at the Redbury hotel on Thursday. It features a huge, rectangular-shaped diamond outlined with smaller diamonds. The band has even more diamonds going around it.
Rivera has been dating the "Switch Up" singer, 25, for at least six months since they first connected on Twitter. They stepped out publicly together for the first time at his birthday party in March.
"I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, 'I'm a fan.' I tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention," she told Access Hollywood. "We went to dinner and the rest is history."
Big Sean sounded equally smitten when talking about her during a radio interview with Philadelphia's Hot 107.9.
"I like everything about her. I like her family. She's into hip-hop. She likes rap. She likes all sorts of music," he said. But their connection goes deeper than both being in the entertainment industry. "Away from all of that other stuff ... when you vibe with someone as a person and they relieve stress from you and it's fun to be around them, that's the kind of person you need to be around."
No word on when the couple's wedding will take place (a rep for Rivera has not yet responded to omg!'s request for comment), but we can safely say it won't be on a game day. Over the weekend, Rivera cheered for her younger sibling, 23-year-old NFL rookie Mychal Rivera, when his Oakland Raiders played the Washington Redskins and he scored the first touchdown of his professional career. She was so excited she bolted down from her luxury box seat, waved her arms in the air, and cheered like mad in a clip that went viral.
Imagine how much fun she's going to have celebrating her own wedding.
