“Jane The Virgin” actress Gina Rodriguez is officially a married woman.
The Puerto Rican actress who made her nerve herself as the romantic writer on the telenovela-esque CW series “Jane The Virgin” officially got a happy ending of her own over the weekend. According to a post on Instagram Monday morning, she wed her boyfriend Joe LoCicero on Saturday.
Rodriguez shared a video of the wedding day on her Instagram page.
“May 4th, 2019 was absolute MAGIC. To my husband Joseph, I am yours forever,” Rodriguez captioned the post.
Of course, the wedding seemed to be filled with a whole lot of family and love. But it was also filled with a whole heck of a lot by Gina’s new groom’s tears.
Like a whole lot guys.
Here is Joe crying while he watches Gina walk down the aisle.
Being all like no llores no llores lollll.
Granted, here is Gina crying while walking down the aisle.
Literally the biggest tears of joy though.
Um but here is Sweet Sweet Joe crying again while walking with his new bride.
LOL and Gina is just smiling next to him like he does this all the time!
And here he is crying again while kissing his new bride.
The saltiest sweetest kisss.
And again while dancing with his mom.
Seriously I cannot get enough of his tears. / There is Gina in the background still cryingggg.
Rodriguez and LoCicero met in 2016 the set of “Jane the Virgin” in an episode where he played a stripper.
LoCicero has guest-starred on the show making a few appearances here and there ever since.
The two got engaged in 2018 and confirmed the news to outlets in August last year.
Speaking about her engagement last year Rodriguez said “I never was the girl that dreamt about my wedding… I did always pray that I would meet a really cool partner, whether it was going to be male or female, that I was going to have somebody that was going to uplift me and support me and want me to shine and not want to take away from that but want to shine as well in their own right and I found it in Joe, and I found it on the set of Jane.”
When it comes to getting married, just about everyone has opinions and advice. Of course, while input on dos and don’ts of considering marriage can be overwhelming, they’re also so important to listen. Recently, we came across a Tweet by Twitter user @cxkenobxkery who posted a thread called “Don’t get married before…” We reposted the question and asked our FIERCE readers what advice they had for other Latinas who were considering marriage and the answers were pretty eye-opening.
So here goes, if you’re thinking about getting married consider pumping the breaks unless you’ve…
Worked out your parenting styles
Too strict? Too soft? Balance and teamwork is crucial. It comes down to what kid of little humans do you BOTH want to raise.” – ramfamfour
Discussed mental health stuff
“ANY mental health issues. My ex husband was not verbally or physically abusive, but his mental health issues were at the core of our marriages demise. I would also add to pay attention to how compatible you are when the ‘feeling’ of being in love isn’t tinting your glasses. He hated new foods and I loved to cook. He didn’t understand hyperbole, sarcasm, analogy, humor, etc. And those are all native to me. Otherwise, this is a great list.” – dinneronmylap
Learned how you plan to grow together
“I think asking how a person plans to continuously seek knowledge during their lifetime is important.” – lachullavida
Have underlined your boundaries
“Speak about the boundaries you plan on having with your families as you create one of your own. TRUST ME, you don’t want a spouse who doesn’t know or understand how important this is. Nobody wants their in laws overstepping. If their parents or yours are doing this now, it will only get worse once you are married and it will create so much drama. People have divorced over this.” – taialvarez
Talked about credit scores
“And CREDIT SCORE, family health history, twins?”- liani9
Seen them when they’re angry
“Other tips: See how this person reacts when angry, see how this person treats strangers, see how this person faces a difficult dilemma. This will tell you a lot about a person.” –mariar09_
Have self-appreciation on both sides
“Don’t get married before you truly know, love and have appreciation for yourself.”- moni.gram
Know their family
“You absolutely need to know about family, how they were raised and around who… she’s wrong on that one.”- your_phoenix_
Have the age experience
“Don’t even THINK about it until you’re in your 30s.” – arlee_la
“Parenting / disciplining! Questions about in laws expectations. Alone time vs quality time – are you someone who needs a lot of time away or close to your partner? How fairly do you fight? How did your parents fight growing up? How do you negotiate with one another?” – melmor
Lived on your own
“The best thing I did for myself: Live away from family. I had a whole year to live with roommates and I learned so mhch about myself. If at all possible, consider doing this!!!” – dj_enamoured
Asked how their prior relationship ended
“Always ask how the prior relationship ended, been almost marry for 5 years and I never asked and I found out that he got 7 women pregnant and all of them got an abortion, also ask about mental health issues with the family I never did and found out his mother was bipolar without treatment now I know why he is the way he is cause he is bipolar… I thought things would changed but nothing has changed and don’t marry a men that has a lot of guy friends cause his priority are his friends… Yes I know don’t need to tell me to get divorce I m already working on it.” – suequte_yoginyc
Figured out how to spend time alone and apart
“Date/Outing expectations – is one a home-body vs outdoorsy? This made for some very uncomfortable situations for both if us in a prior relationship. Would lead to full on arguments. But if both aren’t comfortable with group dates or don’t consider a quiet dinner at home as romantic then someone is going to become resentful.” – rosanam1978
Been genetically tested
“On having children, it best to get a gene-carrier (gene disease testing) before marriage. It makes me so angry when hearing that married couple… MARRRIED, do it after marriage. What if both of them are carriers? Then having a kid with their gene disease is on its way, if they have 1 biological.” – officialdarlin
As we highlight Pride month, we wanted to share beautiful stories of LGBTQ+ love. To do so, we recently asked our FIERCE readers on Instagram to tell us how they met their partners and the results were not only hilarious but deeply inspiring.
“My girlfriend and I met at the end of our first year of law school. She would say that I curved her for a few months before we became close. Almost three years later, we are both attorneys and looking forward to where life takes us.” – legalricanmujer
These two lovers who met while pushing for a joint interest
“We met in boot camp! 10 years ago (we’ve been together 2 /1/2 years, married 1 yr.” –hey_itsaj18
Chicas who started out on the same path and stuck together.
“We met in Nursing school we graduated together. That was 4 years ago, she’s a psychiatric nurse and I’m a geriatric nurse.” – m_a_r_i_a__j_o_h_a_n_n_a
Turns out the internet is the ultimate matchmaker.
“On the HER app. The same day she liked my profile she ended up coming into my job. I saw her but she didn’t see me. I ended up messaging her that night when I got off of work & we have been inseparable ever since. 3 years later and everyday I fall in love with her over & over again.” – _yourfavoritepoet_
And this is the most hilarious one of all.
“My wife @chulaworldand I were both seeing the same guy (total 🐶) …… so when we found out about each other we met up! And we have LITERALLY been inseparable ever since. Married on 4/20/19.” –bunuelitas
