There’s no denying Gina Rodriguez is heads over heels in love with boyfriend, Joe LoCicero.
During an appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, the Jane the Virgin star opened up about meeting her boo when he joined the comedy-drama series. “We met on Jane and six months later, we saw each other in the gym,” the 32-year-old Puerto Rican said. “It was serendipitous! ‘Cause on set it was like, ‘Hey, lovely to meet you.’”
When host Ryan Seacrest asked the Latina whether she was immediately striked by actor when first meeting him, she responded: “Yeah, I think he strikes everyone as attractive.”
Rodriguez also admitted that although she was attracted to her boyfriend from the beginning, LoCicero, who guest starred on the show as a Don Quixote-themed stripper, initially thought she was just being nice to him. However, after running into each other at the gym, The CW star and the actor connected over their love of boxing. The Chicago-born star, who has opened up about her passion of Muay Thai boxing in the past, recently traveled to Thailand with her boo to train in preperation for the show.
Earlier this week, the brunette beauty took to Instagram to share a tear-jerking video of herself and LoCicero kissing each other on the boardwalk. The couple, who have been dating since late 2016, made their red carpet debut at the 2017 SAGs Awards. The rest is history in the making.
