Ronnie Ortiz-Magro Reacts to Ex Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola’s Engagement

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro only has the best wishes for ex-girlfriend Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola as she heads for the wedding altar with Christian Biscardi.

“You know, God bless her, and I’m glad that she found happiness,” Ortiz-Magro, 33, told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m glad that we’ve all found happiness, you know? We’re very lucky.”

The reality star dated Giancola, 32, off and on from 2009 to 2014, as documented on MTV’s Jersey Shore, but the duo split after he cheated on her, as he confessed in 2018 on the reality show’s revival, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

“I got cold feet,” he said at the time. “I wanted to do the right thing, but there was a part of me that was like, ‘I’m not going to do the right thing.’ So I didn’t do it. I ended up cheating, she found out. I blew it.”

Giancola moved on with Biscardi, announcing the relationship in April 2017. And this March, she revealed their engagement. “I’m completely overwhelmed with happiness,” the Jersey Shore alum wrote on Instagram, captioning a photo of her beau on bended knee. “Yesterday was the best day of my life! I get to marry my other half, best friend and soulmate. ❤️ I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you @_biscardi I love you!! #Fiance #MrsBiscardi
