So, what’s good is that I’m very good at it!” She continued: “Nooo, I'm joking, I’m joking! the tears for him were semi-real, I’m joking! It was kind of important that I definitely kept the heart of marriage for real life.”
Gina and Joe met on Jane´s set in 2016 and tied the knot last May
Gina and Joe started dating in 2016 after he had a small – and hilarious – role as a stripper in the series. “We met on Jane, and then six months later, we saw each other in the gym,” the actress explained in an interview for Live Kelly&Ryan. “He thought I was being nice to him because I like being nice with everybody coming to the show, it means a lot to me if you come and share your talent with us, and I thought he was being sweet with me because… I´m the lead. Nothing happened and then, six months later, we met in the gym and I was like, ‘oh, you box also.’” And that was the beginning of a beautiful love story! Lucky girl, Gina, she got the fairytale ending two times over!
