Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is no stranger to drama. After all, if you’ve seen just one clip from MTV’s hit reality show, Jersey Shore, you know that anywhere Ronnie goes, some type of tumultuous drama is bound to show up, too.
And when it comes to relationships, let’s just say he hasn’t had the mellowest track record in that category, either.
Fans and critics alike watched Ronnie and Samantha Giancola’s relationship play out over the course of six seasons, and through all the ups and downs, everyone was rooting for one of two things: for them to work out their differences or to just break the heck up already and move on.
As you can imagine, the latter happened. Sam is now happily engaged to her beau of over two years, Christian Biscardi, and after a brief romance with Khloé Kardashian’s BFF, Malika Haqq, Ronnie found love again in Vegas with Jen Harley — the mother of his now 1-year-old daughter, Ariana.
The pair broke up shortly after Ariana’s birth in 2018 and share 50/50 custody, but they are totally committed to co-parenting their baby girl.
Recently, the 33-year-old reality star spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his and Jen’s relationship, saying, “She’s always going to be the mother of my child, you know? And like, me and her, we’re always going to have love for each other, but right now, we’re both happier in the situation we’re in.”
