Grocery Store Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt were total #relationshipgoals for most of Bachelor in Paradise season 7. They were basically attached at the hip—even after Joe's ex, Kendall Long, arrived to stir the pot.
All season long, these two seemed unshakeable. Even Kendall explaining that she wasn't over their breakup wasn't enough to convince Joe to leave Serena—and Kendall's self-elimination not long after was heartbreaking to watch. Days later, the couple admitted they were falling head over heels in love with each other (aw!).
After watching their relationship lead to an engagement on the beach, it's only fair to wonder if these two are still the apple of each other's eye. Luckily, Reality Steve has all the deets (and photo evidence!) you're looking for.
Here's the scoop on Joe and Serena's current relationship status:
Warning! Major spoilers ahead: Stop reading here if you don't want to know what happens on the rest of this season of Bachelor in Paradise.
Were Joe and Serena dating before Paradise?
Probably not. It seems unlikely that Joe and Serena had a pre-Paradise connection, but who knows? Joe and Kendall officially announced their split in January 2020 after dating for more than a year, according to People.
While there isn't any insider info that points to a pre-show relationship between Joe and Serena, Paradise didn't start filming until spring 2021. So there was definitely plenty of time for a flirty DM or two before the pair hit the beach.
ICYMI, here's a refresher on Joe:
Did Joe and Serena make it to the season finale?
They sure did! This lucky pair was one of three to end this season with a proposal. The other couples who also popped the question were Riley and Maurissa and Kenny and Mari.
Congrats on the Neil Lane sparkler!
Are they still together IRL?
Yep, these two are still going strong. Back in July, Reality Steve Tweeted a sneaky pic of Joe and Serena cozied up next to each other. "Grocery Joe & Serena Pitt today at a rooftop pool in Chicago…" he captioned the snap.

Also, Serena's BFF on the show, Abigail Heringer, pretty much spoiled the pair's relationship status for fans with a not-so-subtle Instagram caption. "I'm stealing you away from @joeamabile1," Abigail wrote on one of Serena's recent posts. "SO THEY WORK OUT," an excited fan responded.
