‘Jersey Shore’ has enjoyed quite a large following since its release in 2009. Going through a myriad of controversies, the show primarily focuses on a group of friends occupying a seaside home during the warm summer months. Raging parties, whirlwind affairs, and high-octane drama have popularized the show and attracted audiences. The 2018 spin-off show “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” attempts to recreate the nostalgia of “Jersey Shore” by bringing the cast of the parent series back together and filming them during their vacations.
The dating life of original ‘Jersey Shore’ star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has always been full of controversy. He had several failed relationships and even became a father when his daughter was born in April 2018. As a result, fans and his castmates were overjoyed when Ronnie met Saffire Matos in February 2020. Saffire, an eyelash technician, quickly took over the reality star and the two started a great relationship. However, with rumors and speculation abounding about their breakup, fans are curious to see if they are still together. Well, we come with answers!
Ronnie and Saffire’s Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Trip
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is not so well known for his luck in love. During ‘Jersey Shore’, the reality star had an on-again, off-again relationship with castmate Sammi Giancola. Their relationship was known for the sheer amount of drama and altercations the show involved. Still, the two broke up after about 8 years of dating due to Ronnie’s alleged affair. The ‘Jersey Shore’ star is also known for Malika Haqq, whom he met on the sets of ‘Famously Single’. However, the relationship soon ended and Ronnie began dating Jen Harley, with whom he shares a daughter.
Unfortunately, his relationship with Jen also crashed and burned after much publicized fights and even arrests. Ronnie’s past was why castmates and fans alike were cautious when the star met Saffire Matos in February 2020. Saffire is an eyelash technician and even has her own eyelash salon on Staten Island. Although Ronnie didn’t come out about his relationship until October, his castmates quickly understood that this wouldn’t be another of his toxic romances.
Instead, Ronnie looked very happy with Saffire, and the two interacted immediately. Their photos spoke volumes about their devotion, and Saffire even referred to Ronnie as her “future husband.” Since Saffire lived on the East Coast and Ronnie on the West Coast, the two had to maintain a long-distance relationship that put them to the test. However, the pair seemed to be up for the challenge, taking it at their own pace and building on their romance.
Are Ronnie and Saffire still together?
Yes, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Saffire Matos are still together. The couple developed an intimate bond during their brief relationship and their chemistry is truly inspiring. Most of Ronnie’s “Jersey Shore” castmates, including Vinny Guadagnino, met Saffire and expressed their happiness at the stable relationship. However, the couple has also been through turbulent waters. Around January 2021, they were subjected to rumors of breakup as many believed the couple had split up after they stopped following each other on Instagram. However, they quickly reconciled and let fans know that they were not breaking up.
In April 2021, the couple ran into another problem when Ronnie was arrested on a charge of intimate partner violence with injuries. The arrest sparked more speculation about the breakup, but Saffire took to social media and debunked the rumors by saying, “Ronnie and I are doing well. There is a lot of misleading information circulating. I appreciate it with all my heart, but anything portrayed there are not facts.” Now that the pair were back together, fans were ecstatic about their future.
Sure enough, in June 2021, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level, and Ronnie proposed to Saffire at a beautiful seaside picnic. Reports also say that Ronnie’s family and his daughter were present during the proposal. Overjoyed that Saffire said yes, Ronnie posted a heartwarming photo to Instagram where he wrote, “Love you 💕 Thank you for staying by my side through thick and thin! Till death do us part.” Moreover, according to sources, even Ronnie’s castmates didn’t know about the proposal and were surprised by it.
However, now that the couple are engaged, Ronnie has reportedly shared some clickbait articles about Saffire’s reported pregnancy, leading fans to believe the lash technician is on his way to becoming a mother. Still, it should be noted that such claims are just speculation and have not been substantiated. Still, the couple has not let such speculation sink in and they are blissfully happy with each other instead. We want to wish Ronnie and Saffire all the best as they prepare to spend the rest of their lives together.
