Amicable exes! Two months after their divorce was finalized, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice seem to be getting along very well. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 48, shared a few heart emojis under a new photo her ex shared with their daughters Gia, 19, and Milania, 14. The teens recently visited their dad in his native Italy, while the couple’s other two daughters, Gabriella, 16, and Audriana, 11, stayed behind in Jersey due to school commitments.
“Miss them so much already,” Joe wrote alongside a closeup photo with Gia and Milania. The father of four, who added a tearful emoji in his caption, indicated that his daughters had left Europe. Gia, meanwhile, confirmed on Instagram that the sisters’ time in Rome had come to an end. She shared a series of photos (seen below) and a video with her dad, with the caption, “See you soon [dad].. I love you!”
Gia and Milania arrived in Italy on November 6, where they traveled to nearby Salerno — in the Campania region of Italy — where Joe is living. Before the trip, the girls hadn’t seen their father since last December. The family was forced to be apart due to Italy’s bout with COVID-19, which eventually moved to the U.S. around March.
Joe and his daughters documented their reunion on social media, which included shopping in Rome, hiking in the mountains in Sala Cosilina, Campania, Italy, eating fine Italian cuisine and spending family time with the Giudice’s.
“It was very emotional and bittersweet for the girls to reunite with Joe,” a source close to the Giudice family told HollywoodLife, exclusively, adding that Teresa was “thrilled” about the reunion, too. “Gia and Milania went because they just really, really wanted to see their dad and they feel safe being there with him during COVID. They’ve had to cancel previous trips due to travel restrictions, but they didn’t want to wait any longer to see their dad, so they ended up going,” the source explained.
