Personal Quote:

[on how Glee (2009)'s Santana is a gay fan favorite] Well, I love my gay bars - I go all the time - and we'll literally be recognized more at gay bars than anywhere else. In fact, I don't get recognized anywhere except for gay bars. The gay boys will be like, "Oh, my God, I'm talking to Santana!" They only call me "Santana". It's awesome. See more »

Trivia:

Revealed in her autobiography "Sorry not Sorry" that she had an abortion in 2010, after discovering that she was pregnant with the child of Ryan Dorsey with whom she had split at that time. She and Dorsey would marry in 2014 and start a family together. See more »
