Naya Rivera 'changed forever' by son

Naya Rivera's life "changed forever" when she gave birth to her son.

The 'Glee' star welcomed her first child, son Josey - who she has with husband Ryan Dorsey - two months ago and admits seeing her little boy for the first time took her "breath away".

She shared: "On September 17, at 8:31 a.m., my life changed forever. I went from being pregnant with my first child (for what felt like an eternity) to being a mom!

"Seeing Josey for the first time literally took my breath away. Really, I gasped! It was such a surreal moment to be face to face with my son.

"Looking back on the entire journey feels like a dream that I can't believe I accomplished. And reality set in quickly when they placed him in my arms for the first time. This was my son, to have and to love, cuddle... (sic)"

However, the 28-year-old beauty admits she was a little hesitant about breastfeeding her newborn.

Writing about her experience for PEOPLE magazine, she explained: "One minute there's nothing going on with your perfectly perky boobs and the next a nurse is rolling yellow stuff out of your nipple and putting it in your baby's mouth.

"Things like achieving a proper latch, combating engorgement, and practicing different holds soon became my sole priorities. Our bedroom became a haven for all things breast; breast pads, shields, pumps and creams."
