- “This vacation has done wonders for them, it’s the boost they desperately needed to clear their heads and let their hair down as a couple,” the source told Us Weekly. “They got to soak up the sun, pamper themselves and hang with friends, but most of all they’re thrilled because they’ve gotten their mojo back as a couple.”
- “They’ve been committed to each other throughout the prison ordeal, but it was definitely a buzzkill and romance had to take a back seat for such a long time because of it,” the source told Us Weekly. “Now though, they’ve got a new lease on the marriage and a permanent smile on their faces!”
The trip down to Mexico came after some dramatics. Because of their sentencing from the college admissions scandal, Loughlin and Giannulli filed two requests to “travel to San Jose Cabo, Mexico, to spend time with (their) family,” according to NBC News. The judge approved the trip.
- Giannulli and Loughlin’s legal teams argued that the couple “acted in compliance during (their) time of supervised release” after they spent time in prison for the college admissions scandal, according to NBC News.
Loughlin and Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, would be crew recruits for the University of Southern California. Loughlin and Giannulli originally pleaded not guilty to the charges in 2019 before flipping their plea in summer 2020. Loughlin finished her prison sentence in December 2020, as Giannulli wrapped up his prison sentence in April.
