Cambio would like to wish Glee's Blake Jenner, a.k.a. Ryder Lynn, a very happy 21st birthday today. Fellow Glee cast mate and girlfriend (rumored fiance), Melissa Benoist, also tweeted about her excitement for Blake's big day. Calling all Gleeks! Today is a big day to celebrate because Blake Jenner, who plays Ryder, turns 21!

As you might remember, Blake got his start on Glee after he won the second season of The Glee Project. The onetime parrot salesman, who hails from Miami, hit it big with his performance on the 4th season of Glee, and now he is a season regular for the 5th upcoming season.

To top off the good news, this past season he started secretly dating Melissa Benoist, who plays Marley Rose, on the show. They are now rumored to be engaged. In an interview with Teen Vogue, Melissa said, "We clicked on his first day, during a 'Born to Hand Jive' dance rehearsal. I love talking about it. Blake is amazing! The chemistry you see with Marley and Ryder is not acting."

Unable to hide her excitement, Melissa took to Twitter saying, "I'm shouting it from the rooftops: HAPPY BIRTHDAY @Blake_Jenner !!!!!!" She sealed the tweet with a heart.

Awwww! What a sweet tweet! Happy birthday, Blake!
