‘Jersey Shore’ Star Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Shows Off New Engagement Ring

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, one of the original cast members of MTV’s hit series Jersey Shore, turned to Instagram on Monday to announce her engagement to boyfriend Justin May — and to show off her new diamond ring.

The 37-year-old told her 3.8 million followers that she was the “happiest and luckiest girl in the world” and shared closeup shots of a prong-set round diamond solitaire on a thin yellow gold band.

Giancola’s new bling mirrors the recent resurgence of yellow gold and solitaire settings, as reported in The Knot’s 2023 “Real Weddings Study.”

In a post sprinkled with a series of emojis, including an engagement ring, red and white hearts and a “loudly crying face,” Giancola wrote, “Life update: Fiancé 3.16.24. The easiest question I’ve ever answered. I’ll love you forever and then some.”

And because she made the announcement on April 1, the reality star was sure to include a note that clarified that her post was “Not an April fools joke.”

May posted a similar series of pics on his Instagram page and captioned them with this sweet sentiment: “She said yes! Can’t wait to Marry my best friend! Love you so much babe! Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!”

Giancola was one of the original eight cast members of Jersey Shore, which ran for six seasons from December 2009 to December 2012 and spawned numerous spinoffs and sequels, including Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, which she rejoined in 2023 after a decade away from the MTV franchise.

Jersey Shore castmates were quick to jump into the comments thread of Giancola’s Instagram page to add their well wishes.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wrote, “Congratulations!! Love Love” punctuated by a clapping hands emoji, while Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio added, “Ayeeeee congrats,” alongside champagne and clapping hand emojis.

Giancola and May, who have been dating since 2021, have yet to pick a wedding date.
