She Acts, Does Muay Thai, And Travels The World With Him, But Gina Rodriguez Can’t Get Enough Of Her ‘Bubba’

05/15/17 Andrew Santiago

Gina Rodriguez recently posted a video where she says some really sweet things about her boyfriend, Joe LoCicero, who she met while on set. LoCicero, is a Long Island, N.Y.-raised actor, improv comic, muay-thai fighter and model. The 30-year-old appeared on Rodriguez’s show, “Jane The Virgin” on the CW. Since then, the two have gotten very close and have even made it social media official, sharing their travels and experiences together on the ‘gram.

Very recently, though, Rodriguez shared a video showing that the two are pretty serious, even crediting the multi-hyphenate LoCicero with helping her through the toughest times, saying, “The stress isn’t as hard, the fear isn’t as great and I know I can take it all on with you lifting me up.”

Gina Rodriguez and boyfriend Joe LoCicero met when he was cast as a stripper on “Jane The Virgin.” So, from the beginning they’ve been up close and personal…

This past weekend, Rodriguez posted a beautiful video tribute to their love.

The video is set to George Ezra’s “Budapest,” a song that features the lyrics “It may be hard for you to / Stop and believe / But for you / You / I’d Leave it all.” The song really seems to capture the essence of her caption, “Human connection is more important than money, power or fame.”

It might be a tiny bit easier to say that human connection is more important when your money, power and fame are pretty solidified — nonetheless it is a beautiful sentiment and they do seem to share a lot.

The couple seems pretty serious and have shared lots of their experiences with fans as of late .

She’s been boxing since she was three, and now gets to share that with LoCicero who is also a fighter.

The couple that kicks ass together… stays together?

They both shared photos of their trip to Thailand where they hung out with elephants.

I have known love but never have I known a love like this. You make my heart smile. #RealLove
