Naya Rivera’s Ex Ryan Dorsey Praises Their Son For His Strength Months After Her Passing: He’s Endured More Than Anyone Should At 5 Years Old

The ex-husband of late actress Naya Rivera is praising their son in a sentimental social media post.

Ryan Dorsey shared a photo of Josey Dorsey, 5, with the caption,

#throwbackthursday !
Shout to @panthers and @sirpurr for sending us some sweet holiday swag. We really appreciate it.
This little boy…man…I couldn’t be any prouder of someone. At such a young age, he’s endured more than anyone should at 5 years old.”

As previously reported, Naya Rivera sadly passed away last year after drowning while on a boating trip with Josey Dorsey.

Ryan Dorsey continued,





“Without even fully realizing it, he lives the #keeppounding mantra every day with his resilance. You’re so strong, so brave, and so kind. I will always be proud of you and we will always #keeppounding b/c that’s all we can do.”

He also had a message for those who suffered a challenging 2020.

“To everyone that had a tough 2020…you will never forget it, we think about it every day and I feel for you and vibrate alongside you on that frequency…I hope you can find some way to go on with your days, to persevere – no matter how hard it is. All the [love] #keeppounding





Earlier this month, he acknowledged what would’ve been her 34th birthday on Jan. 12th.

He wrote,

“Just as surreal as it is real that you’re gone. If that makes sense, but none of this still makes any sense…34..I could just hear you saying “Ah, I’m old AF now!” Ha…Rest easy old lady..”

Continued prayers for Naya Rivera’s family.
