Naya Marie Rivera is an American singer and actress with an estimated net worth of $1.4 million . She is best known for her role as “Santana Lopez” on Fox’s hit musical drama-comedy show Glee. Naya is 5’5 and weighs 117 pounds. Naya Marie Rivera was born on January 12, 1987 in Valencia, California. Rivera was born into a family with show business in its blood. Her mother, Yolanda, first moved to Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career, while her father, George, worked in the music industry. Rivera’s brother plays professional football while her sister is a runway model.

Rivera started acting at very young age and her first consistent work – after commercials came at the age of 4 in The Royal Family where she played “Hillary Winston.” Unfortunately, the death of the show’s star, Redd Foxx, forced the cancelation of the sitcom and for the next decade Rivera would take a series of parts in such popular 1990 shows as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Matters, Baywatch. By 2002, at only 15, she was already an acting veteran and she earned a recurring role on The Bernie Mac Show. She also would guest in 8 Simple Rules, Girlfriends and CSI: Miami during the decade.

Despite steady work for most of her life, it wasn’t until Rivera was cast in Fox’s Glee in 2009 where she would earn widespread fame. Rivera’s character, “Santana Lopez,” is a conniving cheerleader and a foil for much of the show’s glee club and has gained in popularity and air-time since the show debuted. Her singing chops on the show led to her first music deal with Colombia records in 2011. She was featured on an episode of MTV’s This Is How I Made It in 2012. She was selected to be on People en Espanol’s “50 Most Beautiful” list and FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women” list and the Maxim “Hot 100” list for three years in a row. Rivera began dating musician Big Sean in 2013 and the couple announced their engagement later that year.
