He continued, 'My sweet, smart, spectacular boy, every day is a gift, I love you more every day and am so proud to call you my son.❤️'

Ryan shared Josey with his ex-wife Naya Rivera, who tragically passed away in a drowning accident in July 2020. 

In the first photo, Josey was seen beaming as he held up six fingers. 

He was wearing a black jacket over a red The Outlaw Josey Wales t-shirt. The Outlaw Josey Wales is a classic 1976 Western film starring Clint Eastwood and may have inspired Josey's name.
