Sorry, Raaaahn! After nearly five years out of the spotlight, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola has a new man in her life and he’s sexy as hell (and no, his name is not Arvin). After calling it quits with her on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again ex, Ronnie Ortiz Magro, the former reality star is now happier than ever with Christian Biscardi… and have we mentioned he’s like really, really hot?
The two have been dating for over a year now, and it looks like their relationship is stronger than ever — unlike Ronnie’s and his baby mama’s. Just days after Jen Harley was allegedly arrested for domestic battery, Sammi took to Instagram to gush about her man. Christian shared a sweet photo of himself with his girl, captioning it, “I will always be the worst looking person in every picture we take and I’m okay with it.” And Sammi responded with the cutest comment, writing, “You’re my better half.” Aww!
Sammi previously spoke with In Touch about the relationship and explained, “It’s kind of exciting. He’s no one in the business, it’s just somebody. I’m learning to keep my relationship stuff a little more private — so that’s all I’m gonna say about it.”
But he’s not just “somebody” because the former Jersey Shore star is so happy with her new life, that she decided to opt out of the Jersey Shore Family Vacation — a reboot of the original series. Sammi chose instead to put her boyfriend and relationship before anything else — and it seems like she made the right decision. Things could have gotten super awkward between her and Ronnie, especially after he admitted that he’s still not over their split in a recent episode. But it’s too late for Ron cause she’s moved on, and her man is hot AF! Keep scrolling and check out everything you need to know about Christian!
He’s super supportive
Even though Sammi skipped the family vacation, she still had to relive her heartbreak when Ronnie admitted to cheating on her on the reboot of the show. Luckily, she had her man. “My strength” she wrote alongside a heart as the caption of a sweet photo with her beau in the aftermath. We’re so glad she has him to lean on!
He’s also a New Jersey native
According to his Facebook page, Christian is from Washington Township — a town of nearly 50,000 in the Garden State’s Gloucester County. Meanwhile, Sammi is from nearby Hazlet, New Jersey.
He’s environmentally conscious
He’s a Consultant at Code Green Solar, “one of the leading providers of solar power solutions across North America.” In other words, he’s got a rockin’ bod and he’s environmentally conscious. No wonder Sammi calls him her “soulmate!”
He loves cars
He posts about them on social media a lot. But hey, we won’t judge! They’re nice.
He’s a family man
How sweet is this photo with his mom?! Someone commented, “So beautiful. Awesome haircut, Christian,” to which he replied, “My mom don’t [sic] like it smh.” Okay, so maybe grammar isn’t his thing, but we’ll let that slide.
He’s got the seal of approval from the Jersey Shore castmates!
Based on her Instagram photos alone, it’s clear that the 30-year-old is head-over-heels for Christian. On several photos of the couple, she’s captioned the snaps, “I can’t get enough of him,” and, “In love with this man.”
And her former Jersey Shore castmates love him, too. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley previously told In Touch that they all totally approve of her new hunk. “We’ve met him and he is such a sweet guy. He makes Sammi happy, so he’s good in my book,” Jenni revealed. Sorry Ron, but we’re kind of obsessed with him too!
