Jersey Shore's Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola was known for her volatile relationship with her costar Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, but those days are long over. The former reality show star is preparing to tie the knot with longtime boyfriend, Christian Biscardi, who proposed in March. Over the weekend, she revealed that the two of them had celebrated their engagement with an intimate family party.
Giancola shared a few shots from the family celebration, including one of her and Biscardi smiling together. "Had the most amazing weekend celebrating our engagement with our families!" she wrote in the caption. Other photos show Giancola posing with relatives. Biscardi reposted one of the images and said, "And the family grows!"
Giancola previously announced she was engaged with an image showing the exact moment Biscardi popped the big question. The photo captured him down on one knee and an emotional Giancola. Later, she shared a close-up of her custom four-carat square-stone design from Pennsylvania jeweler Paul A. Cozzi III.
"I'm completely overwhelmed with happiness. Yesterday was the best day of my life! I get to marry my other half, best friend and soulmate. вќ¤пёЏ I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you @_biscardi I love you!!" she captioned the shot with news of the engagement. Her older castmates chimed in happily and joined in on her excitement: "omg omg omg !!!!
