The reality star confirmed that he’ll be back for another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation with a picture on Instagram. He looked noticeably slimmer in the picture and happy.

Ortiz-Magro has reportedly gone through many changes since Season 2. One of which was going to rehab to get sober.

“I decided to go to treatment because I wanted to be a better person, a better father for my daughter,” Ortiz-Magro revealed to Us Weekly. “Eventually, all the bad decisions I was making were going to lead me to places that I didn’t want to be. I wanted to be led to the place that I am now – that’s happy, healthy and the best role model for my daughter.”

He talked about his unhealthy relationship with drinking. “I was very depressed and when I was depressed I would just turn to drinking,” explained the reality star. “And when I would drink bad things would just continue to happen because I wouldn’t react the way I should.”

Ortiz-Magro’s new physique isn’t just from cutting out alcohol. He revealed on another show that he got surgery.

The Jersey Shore cast was all about going to the gym to keep up their physiques on the show. Years later, it looks like their priorities are now different including the dad.

I’ve always been a workout fanatic and I’ve always been in shape but it also takes a lot of hard work to stay in shape,” he explained on The Doctors, according to E! News. That’s because he now has a daughter.

“She’s like my guardian angel and now I can’t spend two to three hours every day in the gym like I used to,” said Ortiz-Magro. “Gym, tan, laundry for me is now gym, tan, diapers.”

So what did Ortiz-Magro end up getting done and why? He was worried about a specific area of his body.

The reality star’s focus was to get his defined abs. He met with plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi for the procedure. It turns out, this type of procedure is fairly new.

“We’re going to do something for Ronnie today that wasn’t even available 10 years ago,” revealed Khorsandi. The surgeon claimed the results will be almost instant. “When you wake up, you’re going to have a six-pack.”

Ortiz-Magro previously posted a picture of his abs on Instagram about 15 weeks ago. He wrote in the caption, “#LivingMyBestLife #HatersWillSayItsPhotoShopped.” 

It looks like Ortiz-Magro is pretty happy with his results. Fans will get to see more of him after rehab and his surgery on the next season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
