Is Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez Engaged to Boyfriend Joe LoCicero


Jane the Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez might just be welcoming her birthday with an engagement to boyfriend Joe LoCicero.

The Golden Globe-winning actress celebrated her 34th birthday on Monday, July 30, with a brand new piece of bling adorning her left ring finger. Rodriguez posted a photo of herself smiling with the ring on full display while enjoying a beach day with LoCicero in Tulum, Mexico.

“34,” she captioned the pic. “‘They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.’ – Frida.”

She also shared a series of photos on her Instagram Stories with the ring on full display. The couple is currently celebrating the star’s birthday in Tulum with her family members.

Engagement speculation reached another high this past year at the 2018 Oscars when Rodriguez walked the red carpet with the actor, sporting a glittering diamond ring on that finger.

The adorable pair first met on the set of Rodriguez’s beloved CW series. However, they didn’t initiate a relationship until much later when they haphazardly saw each other at the gym.

Happy Birthday my Love!

“It was serendipitous,” Rodriguez told Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa on their show, while joking that he was coincidentally at her workout spot.

The Knot has reached out to reps for Rodriguez, but has not yet received a response.
