Lea Michele and her boyfriend have planned to spend Valentine's Day (14.02.15) stuffing their faces with pizza.

The 'Glee' actress admits her busy work schedule has jeopardised her chances to celebrate the romantic occasion in an extravagant way, so she and her beau Matthew Paetz have decided to spend the evening gorging on fast food and watching a scary movie.

Speaking to E! News, she said of the day: ''Well, we will be working so it's definitely going to be a scary movie and pizza night, which is always what it's been. I'm totally fine with that.''

The couple's relationship has been going from strength-to-strength over the past eight months and the 28-year-old star even moved her hunky lover into her home in California last October.

The pair struck up a romance last June after meeting on the set of the brunette beauty's music video for her single 'On My Way.'

The relationship came just 11 months after her boyfriend Cory Monteith, whom she had been dating for 18 months, tragically passed away from a drugs overdose in July 2013.

However, Cory's father Joe Monteith has since given Lea's new romance with Matthew his blessing and is happy that she is moving on with her life after the tragedy.

Joe said previously: ''She's a beautiful young woman, she's just getting to the top of her career and I don't expect her to go out and do it alone. She should enjoy life. She had a good time when she was with Cory, from what I understand, but life's gotta go on.''
