The 'Glee' actress passed away at 33 after sadly drowned in Lake Piru on July 8, 2020.
So sad! Naya Rivera's dad, George Rivera, reveals how her son Josey is doing after her tragic death. The late actress shared one son with her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey.
After the tragic loss, Naya's sister Nickayla moved to Dorsey's house to help him raise Josey. “Nickayla and Ryan, are doing a really great job,” George said to Entertainment Tonight.
“We handle him, and we talk to him just like he’s a 5-year-old going on 6. It’s no different, but when he wants to talk about his mother, we talk about his mother, in conversation. He’s growing up and handling it really well.”
“It’s not like you’re talking about a ghost that’s floating around, right?” he added. “He’s got memories as well, but boy is he coming around, right? Really strong kid.”
Recently, George recalled the last time he did FaceTime with Naya, just a few minutes before she got into the boat on the tragic day.
