After making up and breaking up with ex Jen Harley several times, it appears Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has a new outlook on love. The MTV star shared a cryptic message about “boundaries” along with a photo of his precious daughter, Ariana Sky, on Tuesday, August 25. 

“No to grudges,” read the quote he posted. “Yes to boundaries. Just because you forgive them doesn’t mean they get access to hurt you again.”

The father of one, 34, and his former flame seem to have put their past drama behind them in recent weeks, reuniting to coparent their daughter on August 12. Ronnie and Jen were seen together in Huntington Beach, California, enjoying a cordial conversation while holding Ariana’s hands as they crossed the street. 

Back in May, In Touch confirmed Ronnie negotiated a plea deal in his domestic violence case with Jen, 32. At the time, the TV personality pleaded no contest to one count of domestic battery and one count of resisting arrest, according to a spokesman for the L.A. City Attorney’s Office Rob Wilcox.

Ronnie was previously prohibited from contacting his ex Jen and their daughter Ariana after the real estate agent was issued a protection order against him in November 2019, following their dispute in October. Jen revealed he and Ariana spent “months” apart, so he was over the moon to see his mini-me in May.

“Cranky as usual! Doesn’t miss a beat! Still love her!” he wrote with laughing emojis during their highly anticipated reunion. More recently, Ronnie and Ariana had a blast during their pool days, which he documented in June. 

Jen revealed her hopes to “coparent peacefully” while chatting exclusively with In Touch about their relationship in April. “Our problem was we knew what was bothering us … We would just sweep things under the rug, but we wouldn’t ever go to therapy or get self-help or do anything like that,” she explained. “So when we would fight, it would just blow up again and then that was our cycle.”

The brunette beauty said they finally put an end to the “back and forth” nature of their relationship after they split in September.
