The late Naya Rivera‘s younger sister Nickayla has reportedly moved in with her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey to help raise her five-year-old son Josey.

The 33-year-old actress passed away in July after tragically drowning in California’s Lake Piru during a boat trip with Josey.

An eyewitness said, “They seem really comfortable together and are obviously helping each other through a very difficult period in both their lives. They were fooling around and chatting the whole time. They’re obviously helping lift each other’s spirits.”

Naya‘s full autopsy report was released a couple of weeks ago and it revealed some devastating details about the day she died.

“I’ve never known a life without you in it & still can’t imagine it. My world is turned upside down. But through it all, everything we were, we are still. I’ll always look at you with the same eyes as I did when I was young,” she added. “My shmaya, I’ll love you for eternity & miss you every second of my life.”

Nickayla‘s statement was posted about an hour after Naya‘s ex-husband Ryan Dorsey broke his silence with a touching tribute on his social media page.
