Amber Riley With Husband Or Boyfriend?

The multi-talented actress Amber Riley was not observed romantically linked with anyone before the launch of her career on the FOX musical series, Glee. But, she was once rumored to have dated her Glee co-star, Kevin McHale. Despite quite a hype, neither Amber now Kevin came forth to address the rumor.

After a while, their public appearance slowly declined, proving that their link up was nothing but just a rumor. 

Meanwhile, the news about her romantic involvement with Kenny Hamilton surfaced the media. But Riley took to Twitter to clear the air and ascertain her fans that it was not true.

A few years down the line, it seemed the old spark between Amber and Kevin was rekindled. Riley took to Instagram on the birthday of Kevin in 2017 to share a throwback picture of the duo sharing a romantic kiss. Her caption seemed suggestive of the love as well:

"forever bitches hahahahaha happy birthday Kevin! I love you soooo much".

However, Amber has not confirmed regarding the link up between the two, so the fact remains tilted towards them sharing only a friendly love.

Well, she might be dating him—or anyone else for that matter—secretly or might be enjoying married life with a husband, but the odds are unlikely. But when we take a closer look, she just seems focused on her career rather than on a relationship for now.

Besides career, Amber also seems focused on a healthy lifestyle. She decided to start eating more healthy food. And the star revealed that her seven months of hard work had paid off and she has lost a considerable amount of weight. 

She was always comfortable with her size, but she just decided that it was time for her to get healthy and she actually did it. She exclaimed,

‘I’ve dropped two dress sizes!’

Amber's weight loss has adorned her beauty further.
