There’s been a lot of ups and downs in Ronnie Ortiz-Magro‘s life this past year. From a drama-filled relationship with Jen Harley to entering rehab for alcohol abuse and depression, the Jersey Shore star has a lot on his plate. However, he couldn’t be more grateful for his beautiful daughter, Ariana Sky. Keep scrolling to see what he said about his “guardian angel.”
His reason for wanting to be so open with Ariana is simple. “I feel like it’s something that she needs to know. I’m going to be very open with her when she grows up. I want us to have that friendship.”
He continued, “I want her to be able to come talk to me. Also a reason why I did this [was] because I want to be able to listen to people and be able to not react. I want her to be like, ‘OK, well I can talk to my father about this. I can tell him this without him getting crazy like most dads do.’ I pray that we do have that bond when she gets older.”
After that, two more brutal social media fights broke out. It started when the newly-minted father seemingly blamed the Instagram model for giving him a black eye. Then, he accused her of trying to extort him.
After the episode aired, the Famously Single alum took to Instagram to deny claims that he was unfaithful. “I just wanted to [apologize] to my family for putting myself in such a bad position in last week’s episode,” he captioned a photo of Jen and Ariana.
He elaborated, “Here’s a repost stating I love them more than anything and the editing [made] it worse than it seems. I promise there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I wouldn’t do anything to hurt either of them. I love you both.”
