“It was very scary to open up about everything,” Rivera said. “It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the Hell?'” (RELATED: Lea Michele Naya Rivera Glee Feud Explained)

“But I hope someone out there gets something out of it,” she added.

Rivera said she found out she was pregnant with actor Ryan Dorsey’s child in 2010, after the two had split up so she could work on her career. Without notifying Dorsey, she decided to end the pregnancy on her day off from shooting the TV show “Glee.”‘

The actress and Dorsey later were married in 2014 and have now have an 11-month old son together.
