Ronnie Ortiz-Magro‘s on-off girlfriend, Jen Harley, paid tribute to him in a loving Father’s Day post on Sunday, June 16.
“Gym,tan, baby has been your ritual since Ariana has been born !” Harley, 32, captioned a series of 10 photos on Instagram including one showing the Jersey Shore star holding their daughter moments after she was born in April 2018.
“You have been an amazing father since day 1 , you have always shared the load of getting up at night ,changing diapers , bath time together, sick days ,comforting her when she’s just not having a good day,” she continued. “We couldn’t ask for a better dad dad dad than you! Thank you for being the best father to our daughter we love you.”
She also shared a video on her Instagram Stories from a Miami hotel suite that showed Ortiz-Magro sitting on a sofa as Jabu Nkabinde‘s “Happy Father’s Day” played.
The heartwarming posts came days after the contentious couple took their 14-month-old daughter to Orlando, Florida.
The pair, who split in January, hit up Disney World and Universal Studios with Ariana on Thursday, June 13, with Harley posted a series of pictures and videos to her Instagram Stories that showed the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star, 33, holding his baby girl’s hand while they explored the Most Magical Place on Earth and checked out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
The show of togetherness comes after a turbulent year that saw allegations of cheating on both sides and Harley arrested in Las Vegas for domestic battery in May, five months after Ortiz-Magro filed a police report against her after she allegedly threw a glass ashtray at him during a nasty New Year’s Eve fight.
The MTV star checked himself into a treatment facility in February, weeks after their split.
“I decided to go to treatment because I wanted to be a better person, a better father for my daughter,” Ortiz-Magro told Us Weekly at the time. “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.”
