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

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 .

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

Make-A-Wish Granted The Wish Of This 11-Year-Old Cancer Patient And His 92-Year-Old Great-Grandfather

This is the first time Make-A-Wish has sent someone to Cuba since the travel ban has been lifted.

Make-A-Wish has been granting terminally ill children their wish of a lifetime since 1980. One of the most recent wishes the organization granted was for 11-year-old Tyler Machado, who wanted one thing while battling his stage 2 non-Hodgkin Lymphoma: to visit his family in Cuba. This is the fist time the non-profit has facilitated a trip to Cuba since President Obama has lifted the travel ban to the Caribbean island, according to Local 10 ABC. The trip included a very emotional reunion of Machado with his great-grandparents who he had never met.

“The biggest thanks and a wish of happiness to whomever made this happen,” Machado’s great-grandfather told Local 10 ABC. “There is no way to pay them back in these final days.”

Machado’s great-grandfather told the news crew that he never thought he would be able to meet his great-grandson, let alone hug him. Machado’s mother, Genesis Ramos, said she was not surprised that he asked Make-A-Wish to send him and his family to Cuba. It was something that, according to Ramos, Machado always wanted.
