Glee star sparks new engagement rumours after flashing ring

Glee actress Lea Michele was the subject of new rumours today after she was pictured wearing a sparkler on her wedding finger.

The star was seen leaving Jimmy Kimmel's studio in Los Angeles on Wednesday night sporting a never-seen-before black and gold ring.


However although the 28-year-old actress has been officially dating boyfriend Matthew Paetz since last June, friends say it's unlikely the pair will be getting engaged any time soon. Lea is keen to finish up with Glee before she makes any life-changing decisions, such as agreeing to get married.

"She wants to fully love on from the show, have it end and then she would start considering engagement and marriage," a source said.

And with so many memories of Lea's late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith connected to her work on Glee, the actress is reluctant to take things to the next level with Matthew any time soon. "She thinks that getting engaged while still on Glee would be a slap in the face to Cory Monteith. There is still too much emotion around," the insider revealed.

We're glad to see Lea is happy, and even more delighted that she's wise enough to take things slowly!
