Lea Michele posted a tribute to Cory Monteith on Monday, which would have been her late boyfriend and “Glee” co-star’s 33rd birthday. “I know you’re serenading everyone right now,” the actress tweeted. “We love you Cory! Happy Birthday.” Accompanying the tweet was an old throwback photo of Monteith playing drums on “Glee” while wearing a high school jacket.

As Gossip Cop reported, Monteith died on July 13, 2013 after fatally overdosing on alcohol and heroin in Vancouver. Michele similarly tweeted a tribute to him last year, with a photo of the couple laughing, and the message, “The biggest heart and most beautiful smile…In all of our hearts…We love you so. Happy Birthday.”

Michele, who is now dating Matthew Paetz, was devastated by Monteith’s death, telling Glamour UK in 2014 how they had planned their future together. She noted at the time, “We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old… We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do.”
