Sorry, Raaaahn! Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola has been out of the spotlight for years, and some Jersey Shore fans may not know about the new man in her life who never fails to make sure she’s “smiling hard.” 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?
In fact, things are going so well between Sammi, 32, and Christian that the two of them got engaged in 2019. The former MTV star celebrated her 32nd birthday on March 14, and she shared a photo showing off her diamond engagement ring. “Welp, this is 32. #Pisces #BirthdayGirl 🎉🎉 #HappyBDay2Me,” she wrote at the time.
Sammi previously spoke with In Touch about her relationship with Christian 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.”
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 one episode of the first season. But it’s too late for Ron cause she’s clearly moved on and is happier than ever. 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’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 it slide.
He’s Got the Seal of Approval From the Jersey Shore Castmates!
Based on her Instagram photos alone, it’s clear that the 32-year-old is head-over-heels for her man. On several photos of the couple, she’s captioned the snaps, “I can’t get enough of him,” and, “In love with this man.”
Plus, her former Jersey Shore castmates love him, too. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley previously told In Touch that they all totally approve of Sammi’s 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. TBH, we’re kind of obsessed with him too!
