Congratulations are in order for Gina Rodriguez and Joe LoCicero! According to a representative, the actress welcomed a baby boy over the weekend. The new parents first met on the set of Rodrigez’s hit series, Jane The Virgin, six years ago when LoCicero portrayed a stripper during an episode in season two. They quickly made their red carpet debut in November of 2016 at Marie Claire’s first annual Young Women’s Honors Gala.

Two years later, LoCicero popped the question, with Rodriguez revealing it to E! News, saying, “I’m stuck with that man for life, he made that so,” The details of the said proposal are still yet to be disclosed.
“I don’t think I’m gonna ever share that,” Rodriguez said at that time. “Because there’s only so many things that you get to own when you become a public figure, because it’s the blessing and the curse of it, you know?”
Rodriguez, who married LoCicero in 2019, announced she was expecting her first child in July 2022 by sharing a video montage on her 38th birthday which featured her husband and a clip of her holding a pregnancy test. That same day, LoCicero went on to share a birthday tribute to the actress, writing, “Wherever you go my heart follows,” to which Rodrigez replied, “Me and baby love you, papa.”

Weeks before giving birth, Rodriguez shared beautiful images of her outdoor maternity shoot where she and her hubby cradled her growing baby bump. “Just the three of us,” she captioned the shot.
Later on January 25, via an Instagram post, the actress shared several photos and videos of what she’s been up to at 40-plus weeks pregnant. In the first video, she is seen dancing and grabbing her baby bump in front of a Not Dead Yet billboard, as she promotes the new TV Show. Other photos show her sitting with the cast of Not Dead Yet, at the recording studio and spending the day at an amusement park.
