Feb. 28, 2014 -- Lea Michele is continuing to cope with the death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith last year, especially since she just revealed the "Glee" couple had discussed having children.
"We talked about a lot of things. We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin," she told Glamour UK magazine for its April cover. "We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do."
She continued, "When you're at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything. But today I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I'm thankful for that."
It's been seven months since Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room on July 13. He was 31 when he died.
The singer/actress, 27, who worked with Monteith on "Glee" since 2009, added that she still feels his presence every day and she feels "physically and emotionally" strong in 2014.
"I lost my grandfather a couple of years ago and I always feel that he's watching over me," she told the magazine. "I feel the exact same way about Cory. Every day when I go running, I feel like he's pushing me to run harder."
Michele even has a new album "Louder" out March 17 and admitted her music, along with some physical activity, got her through the tough times.
"I started doing yoga, which really helped," she said of life right after Monteith's death. "Then gradually your mind catches up with your body. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be. There's something sad about that but also something good."
