“She’s special to me,” Ortiz-Magro told Us Weekly. “I met her back in February and we talked for four or five months and we really did have a strong connection and bond.” Ortiz-Magro said the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic quarantine caused them to stop talking for a brief period. Fortunately, their feelings remained. 

“We kind of rekindled things right before I went back to film [Jersey Shore: Family Vacation] with the guys,” he added. “And you know, it’s different for me because I found someone that adds to my happiness.” 

Ortiz-Magro admitted that Matos offers him what he was missing in the past. 

“She supports me,” the Jersey Shore star said. “She loves me and that’s something that I’ve always looked for. And I feel like that’s [some]thing that I have not gotten in return and it’s [some]thing that I’ve always given to other people.”

While Matos won’t likely be part of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation this season, fans are happy Ortiz-Magro is in a healthy place.
