Ronnie Magro-Ortiz and Jen Harley are the "best" they've "ever been."

The Jersey Shore star and the mother of his child have been through many ups and downs over the last year. In late April, less than one month after welcoming their daughter Ariana Sky, the couple called it quits. The split came after a series of explosive social media fights, including one broadcast on Instagram Live.

A month later, an insider told us that Ron and Jen were "peaceful" for the sake of their daughter. Then in early June, the duo was involved in a domestic dispute in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to E! News that Ron and Jen got into a physical altercation at Planet Hollywood. E! News confirmed at the time that the fight was sparked by the sudden death of Jen's beloved dog.

Weeks later, Jen was arrested for alleged domestic battery. She was taken into custody at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, where she was later released after meeting $3,000 bail. The Clark County District Attorney's office confirmed to E! News in early July that Jen will not face charges for the alleged domestic battery incident. The case was dropped due to insufficient evidence.

Shortly after, Ronnie and Jen celebrated the Fourth of July together and seemingly have been back on since then. A source confirmed to E! News that the couple is "back together" in August as they spent time with their baby girl in Puerto Rico.

"They've been quiet about it but it's been about a month now," a source told E! News at the time. "They want peace and they want things to work out for the baby's sake.

On Thursday, the couple took Ariana and Jen's son Mason to Central Park in New York City, where they snapped some adorable photos.

Later on, Jen took to her Instagram Story to share a video of her and Ronnie embracing.

"How we are all the time," Jen captioned the video. "We went through a rough time but we are strong and best we've ever been. I love you and have your back always."

On Friday, Ron showed his support for Jersey Shore co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino by attending his tax evasion sentencing in New Jersey.
