His fiance, Gina Rodriguez, age 34, is a 2015 Golden Glove Award winner with resume boasting appearances from The Bold and the Beautiful to Jane the Virgin. She had grown up in a Puerto Rican family in Chicago before hitting it big in LA.

In a separate post on the same day, in what appears to be a reply to Joe's post, Gina shared a photo of her vacationing with a cryptic message saying that her dreams had come true. 

“34. 'They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.' - Frida”

The 31-year-old actor first met Gina Rodriguez on the set of Jane the Virgin in late 2015. In one of the scenes involving the now newly engaged couple, he played a male stripper while Gina had worn bondage clothes.

It wasn’t until - six months after their initial introduction - they began to bond over each other. They ran into each other at a gym, and a mutual love for boxing brought the couple closer in the summer of 2016.

For the most part, the Spaghettiman star maintained a low-profile about his relationship with his co-star, making very few public appearances alongside her. However, in November 2016, the couple decided to make their relationship public by attending Marie Claire’s first annual Young Women Honors gala together as a couple.

By the time Christmas had approached, he was already being bombarded with L-Bombs by his Jane the Virgin co-star.

The news of their engagement isn’t as surprising as many people would make it as both him and Gina have professed their love and compassion for each other publically. One instance of their reverence for each other was captured in May 2017 interview with Live With Kelly and Ryan when Gina was quoted as saying that her boyfriend of almost two years was ‘full of generosity and sacrifice.’
