Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Ronnie Ortiz Magro’s fiancé Saffire Matos is forming a close relationship with her future mother-in-law. Ronnie and Saffire went public with their relationship in October 2019. At the time, the relationship was perceived as being much healthier than that of Ronnie’s past relationships with both Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Jenn Harley.
Ronnie proposed to Saffire over Father’s Day weekend this past June. The proposal shocked fans as it came just two months after Ronnie’s most recent arrest for domestic violence allegations. Ronnie was taken into custody in Los Angeles. Saffire had called police for help when an argument with Ronnie turned physical. They both went quiet on social media for quite some time before making their return, confirming they were in fact still together.
As Ronnie and Saffire prepare for their upcoming wedding, Saffire is becoming closer with Ronnie’s family. An insider told Us Weekly, “Saffire is getting close with Ronnie’s mom.” Ronnie’s mom “absolutely adores her.” Saffire has remained by Ronnie’s side despite the recent drama. Following their recent engagement, Saffire has made the move from New York to California to be with Ronnie, his mom and his 3-year-old daughter Arianna Sky. In doing so, Saffire has left all of her family and friends behind, making the move somewhat difficult for her. When Ronnie’s mom is around, which is quite often, she “makes [Saffire] feel more at home.”
Saffire has recently shared photos and videos with Ronnie’s mom on her social media as well, showing off their growing relationship. Since Ronnie’s arrest in April, both Saffire and Ronnie’s mom have been his biggest support systems. The insider also mentioned, “He’s been around people who may have not had the best intentions with him, so [Saffire] is still learning how to get past all the obstacles when it comes to things he’s going through.” In addition to getting engaged and planning his upcoming wedding, Ronnie has been working on his mental health as well. He claims he is now four months sober, which Saffire praised him for on social media.
As Ronnie continues to make a turnaround in his life with Saffire by his side, he is also planning on making a return to Jersey Shore: Family Vacation before the cast concludes filming for season 5. While this has yet to be confirmed by MTV, it could be assumed that Ronnie wants to return to filming prior to his wedding to Saffire. In doing so, the couple would be able to have camera crews present on their big day so the wedding can be displayed on the show. Many of his fellow roommates have done this in the past such as Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Angelina Pivarnick. Hopefully, Ronnie has left all of the drama in the past for good this time.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8pm EST on MTV.
