Naya Rivera Channels Her Inner Cheerleader After Her Brother’s NFL Touchdown

Naya experienced sheer 'glee' after little bro Mychal's score for the Oakland Raiders.

Even though it’s been awhile since Naya Rivera picked up pom-poms on “Glee” as Santana Lopez, she channeled her inner cheerleader when her NFL pro little brother, Mychal, scored big time for his Oakland Raiders. Like a good big sister, she posted a photo on Instagram Friday morning (August 29) of him with one of his teammates after he scored a touchdown that helped lead the team to victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Photos are worth a thousand words, as the saying goes, but Naya proudly added one more: “Duuhhhh…”

How sweet!

Mychal is very supportive of his sister’s career too. Back in September 2013, when Naya’s single “Sorry” dropped, he told everyone to go download it on iTunes.


There’s definitely no sibling rivalry here.

When she's not behind her desk at MTV News, you'll probably find her kicking and punching an imaginary arch nemesis at the gym or dancing and shopping for carrots in the aisles of her local supermarket.
