If their Instagrams reflect reality, then it appears Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez and her boyfriend, Joe LoCicero, are having quite the whirlwind romance. Rodriguez and LoCicero have reportedly been dating since late 2016, and boy, they make for quite an adorable couple! It seems like each time they attend an event together there are reports of PDA. But not the excessive and off-putting kind of PDA, more like the aww-inducing, too cute too handle type.
Back in November Rodriguez brought LoCicero to Marie Claire’s Young Women’s Honors event and, according to E!, they were “cuddly” and shared a few kisses. Then, in January, the duo walked the red carpet together at the SAG Awards, and were seen holding hands and embracing each other in photos. Personally, I love seeing photos of these two love birds, the just look so genuinely into one another — it totally warms my cold heart.
It’s also awesome to see that Rodriguez has found a relationship that seems to make her happy. After she spilt from Revenge star Henri Esteve, Rodriguez spoke to People about how difficult dating in Hollywood can be. “Relationships and friendships have gotten a little more difficult,” she said. “You have to keep a real and honest and clear passageway with everybody in your life. You can’t allow the yes men to get in your head because the hype can be scary.”
Difficult, but clearly not impossible!
On Valentine’s Day, Rodriguez referred to LoCicero as her “#RealLove” in an Insta photo of the couple lovingly gazing into each other’s eyes.

Like, does it get any cuter?
LoCicero — who is also an actor — actually appeared on an episode of Jane the Virgin, “Chapter Thirty-Nine,” in which he played stripper. And according to the Google image results you get when you search for his name, LoCicero is also a former underwear model (warning: pic is NSFW).
The year is definitely off to a good start for Rodriguez, not only does she appear to have happiness and romance in her life, but she recently signed a multi-year deal with CBS Television Studios. Get it!
