“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.

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.”
YouTuber Salice Rose has been notoriously private about her love life… up until last week when she introduced us all to her new bae. The Rose Family has erupted with joy for Salice in finding, if not love, then at least baeship with Brilynn. We’ve never seen another face that Salice has dated.
Then, one of Salice’s exes launched a YouTube channel of her own to explicitly talk about her relationship with Salice. In the video, Chas vents all her frustrations with the relationship and publicly airs out her side of the story. According to Chas, Salice was verbally and emotionally abusive, didn’t want her to have friends, and even donated her father’s ashes to Goodwill after one day’s notice to remove her stuff from Salice’s apartment.
Chas F’s channel already has 47k subscribers, and all her videos are about Salice Rose.
She created the channel about a week ago, just after Salice introduced her followers to her new girlfriend, Brilynn. According to Chas, it was hard to watch the video because just two weeks prior, they were “in each other’s phones” and talking about marriage, but Salice wanted to focus on her music.
Salice Rose has responded with a nearly hour and a half long retaliation video.
“A message to my ex: I hope lying on my name all over social media made you happy,” Salice tweeted. “I hope you got all the fame you wanted. Because of YOU I’m in waves of depression. You spoke, my turn.”
In the video, she goes point by point to respond to each of Chas’s allegations.
Salice actually made the point of writing down each point that Chas made and tells her fans that the video would be the first and the last time she talks about that relationship again.
Chas’ story is that Salice didn’t let her have any other jobs because she didn’t want her to be too far from her. Salice’s side, corroborated by her friends commenting in the background, is that Chas quit all her jobs of her own volition. According to Salice, she would absolutely tell her to “come home,” but didn’t expect her to actually quit her jobs.
According to Chas, Salice had the idea to hire her and their relationship started to fall apart from there.
Chas shared that she had a feeling that taking the job would take away time from their relationship. They were spending all day together, and Salice takes her job very seriously. According to Chas, that made it difficult to spend time together without tension. Chas also said that she wasn’t getting paid enough to support anything other than her car bills. They started fighting, and Chas says that she didn’t have the opportunity to make any new friends.
The Rose Family is largely very sus of Chas’ accusations.
Chas said that she asked Salice to take on more responsibilities because she felt degraded by being paid to pick up dog poop. Salice had two dogs and Chas also had two dogs. According to Chas, the moment that she talked about getting other jobs, Salice started to treat her with disrespect and gaslit her.
Salice Rose opened her retaliation video by calling several Goodwills to ask if they accept human remains. They all said ‘no.’
Chas says that Salice was going to mail her stuff out to Florida after they separated. Chas said she was calling and leaving voicemails to a mutual friend to arrange for Chas’s dad’s stuff to be mailed back to Florida. Through tears, Chas shares that two months after she moved out, she received an email with the subject line, “Notice of Right to Reclaim Abandoned Property” on June 7th.
One fan did some deep diving on Chas’ Instagram back to the day after that email, June 8th.
“I saw your ex’s vids and for a sec she made me think that you were the bad guy here,” tweeted @nvmexme. “But i mean everyone make mistakes yk? Anyways i kinda stalked her ig account and noticed that the same day say said that her things were going to be ‘donated’ Which was on june 8.”
Salice shared the email with her fans which clearly states that she gave Chas a month and a day from the receipt of the email to reclaim her property, which had already been in her apartment for two months.
There has been an outpour of support for Salice Rose after she responded to her ex-girlfriend’s video.
Salice laid out her counterargument in an hour and twenty-minute video and went point by point off of Chas F’s video. She made a real point of taking on Chas F’s statement that Salice didn’t want her to have friends. As Salice lays out, she values friendships and argues that it is better for the relationship if both people have friends to hang out with outside of the relationship.
In other news, Salice’s debut R&B track became an overnight bop.
Salice has been teasing an entrance into a music career, and fans are shooketh that it’s actually here. Salice’s new bae, Brilynn commented, “Congratulations babe.”
Relationships are messy, but “Lullaby” is as smooth as can be.
Fans already can’t get enough of her new song.
Some are calling it the new summer bop. It does seem like fans have long been waiting for something like this from Salice Rose and they are letting everyone know that they need to check out this new song.

Last week marked the end of an era for many diehard“Jane the Virgin” fans. For the past five years and for the exactly 100 episodes, we’ve laughed, cried, and spent a lot of time getting to know the Villanueva family. Through the original CW show, we also became enthralled in the drama telenevolas many of us Latinx kids grew up watching with our families. JTV might have not been the most realistic portrayal of our personal lives or even real life for that matter, but at the root of it, the show focused on the importance of love, friendships, and family; it taught us lessons we’ll never forget.
But most importantly, JTV’s Jane Villanueva made sure many of us saw ourselves represented through our television screen for the past five years.
Ultimately, Jane Villanueva was us. She made us feel seen, heard, and she helped us navigate life as Latina women worthy of love and worthy of achieving the impossible.
The last and final chapter of Jane the Virgin, which aired earlier this week on the CW, was the fairytale ending we were all waiting for since. For seasons, devoted fans followed Jane Villanueva’s journey when she stepped off that bus and was artificially inseminated with Rafael Solano’s baby. Since then, characters have been killed, characters have been kidnapped, characters have died and then come back to life, Jane has written a book and then another, we’ve encountered and defeated many villains, and well, you know how novelas go.
But on the last episode, there were no surprises. No deaths. No bad luck. Just pure bliss.
The cast of Jane the Virgin also shared heartfelt tributes to a show that’s also forever changed their lives.
Justin Baldoni, aka Rafael Solano, posted so many sweet behind the scenes photos of him alongside the cast.
The day after her 35th birthday and on the day of the series finale, Gina Rodriguez shared a heartfelt tribute to the show that brought us Jane Villanueva.
“We started shooting the first season of Jane in July 2014. A few days into shooting I turned 30 on set. Yesterday I turned 35. And today is the very last episodes, 99 and 100 airing of Jane The Virgin. Five years. Five years of love, laughter, growth, pain, surprises, deaths, new births and a shit ton of memories. To my warriors who have supported me from day one, Thank you. I am able to live out my dream career because of you and I will never stop making art to bring Joy and Laughter into your home/train ride/plane ride or classroom! Art is my savior. Art is what makes me feel like I can fly,” she wrote in her caption.
If you’re like me, and have been #TeamJafael since the beginning, Justin Baldoni’s tribute will make you cry.
“For the past five years you have welcomed us into your homes, apartments, dorm rooms…but more than that—so much more than that—you have welcomed us into your hearts,” Baldoni wrote. “This show has been magic because you all are magic. And there are not enough words in all the languages of the world to adequately express how deeply grateful I am. So I will just say thank you.”
Yael Grobglas, who portrayed Petra in JTV, posted footage of the final table read of the series finale.
In the video, Gina and Justin can be seen reciting their last lines of JTV ever, unable to hold back tears. We dare you NOT to cry.
Grobglas also shared a photo with her alongside the other fierce women characters on the show. ” I’m so happy we got to end on our own terms unlike most shows and wrap things up at our own time but I’m still incredibly overwhelmed by this chapter ending. So people are asking me how I feel.. I don’t know,” she wrote.
Our favorite fictional mama, Xiomara, shared a video of her watching the series finale. We’ll miss you, Xo!
Jaime Camil, the best fictional father and telenovela star that there ever was, also shared a heartfelt message to JTV fans on the night of the finale.
“100 episodes, 5 years, unlimited amount of feelings, indescribable friendships, overwhelming support, gratitude, joy, love and of course, the greatest fans. Thank you for giving us the privilege to entertain you. Your kind words mean everything,” Camil wrote in an Instagram caption. We’ll miss you forever, Rogelio de la Vega.
Despite it being the final season of “Jane the Virgin,” it’s important to not forget that we’ll now be getting a spinoff! In case you forgot, Jane the Novela–which will be narrated by Gina Rodriguez–will follow the format of a American Horror Story definition of an anthology. This means it will be telling one complete story each episode like a traditional telenovela.
Jennie Snyder Urman told PopSugar that if the show makes it to the second season, provided that it even gets picked up to be a series in the first place, we might get lucky and see other Jane the Virgin characters appear as well.
So this isn’t a goodbye, it’s hopefully a see you later for JTV fans.
“Don’t forget to enjoy the ride because every chapter comes to a close,” Gina Rodriguez says in Chapter 99, part of the two-part series finale. “So I have enjoyed the ride, things like this, they are winning the lottery. I will always thank Jane, the character.”
We’ll never forget the 100 chapters Jane the Virgin brought us. *cries*
