He's a pro wrestler.

Carpinello, who goes by Zack Clayton in the wrestling world, is an independent wrestler who decided to pursue the big leagues (WWE) post-high school. He currently wrestles for All Elite Wrestling where he's been since 2015.

He's the best step-dad.

Carpinello absolutely adores Farley's two kids, daughter Meilani Alexandra, 6, and Greyson Valor, 4, from her previous marriage to Roger Matthews. He frequently posts with the kids and always praises Farley for her mothering skills.

He even does family costumes with them on Halloween, like last year's epic Stranger Things look.

He's already friends with her castmates.

After he started dating Farley, Carpinello appeared on her show Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. And it seems as though he fits in. He still hangs with the cast outside of filming. He even helped throw a surprise birthday dinner for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino!
