Earlier, Gina had expressed her want to have a child ‘so badly’
During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in the year 2016, Gina had previously discussed her desire to start a family by having a child. The performer was discussing the psychological impact that working on the set of Jane the Virgin while she was pregnant was having on her.
In response to the talk-show host’s inquiry as to whether or not it made her long for a child of her own, she exclaimed, “So badly!” while bringing both of her hands to her chest.
“But I don’t want the entire process—I just want one of them to show up, like the chat about the stork.” I might be able to adopt, right? I could very well go ahead and do it. “I know for sure that I want to adopt,” she said. When asked about her time spent on the set of Jane the Virgin working with twins, she replied, “I feel like they bring the baby up to me and my ovaries are like ‘Ahh! “Come here, you sweetheart!'”
Gina and Joe began their relationship
They first became acquainted with one another while working on the set of Jane the Virgin, in which Joe LoCicero had a guest starring role as a stripper. Soon after that, in 2016, the two began dating each other. After some time had passed, Gina showed off the diamond ring that had been rumored to be part of her engagement ring. During that time, she remarked, “I am” (engaged). He is the best there is. He is the f—ing best. Period. We’ve been engaged for almost a month now, but I didn’t want to let anyone know about it for a bit.
“I don’t really really want to admit it’s occurring, because I don’t want to scare you. I simply want to continue living! The fact that other people are concerned is, in my view, a tremendous blessing.
That’s a lovely thing, and it makes a person feel wonderful to think about it. She went on to say, “But there’s also a part of me that wants to hold on to a little something that’s just mine because there aren’t too many things in my life that are like that anymore.”
The wedding took place on May 4th, 2019, for the pair. In addition to his work as an actor, LoCicero competes in mixed martial arts.
