The entire family is currently enjoying a family vacation in the Bahamas, where Joe is getting some much-needed time with his girls (he can’t come back to the U.S.). They shared a family dinner at a restaurant, and the girls captured the special moment on social media on Wednesday, March 31. Joe seemed really appreciative to spend time with loved ones and said that Luis is a stand-up guy! Check out pics below!
Joe and Teresa share four girls, Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12. Milania captured the best video, which featured a pan of the mixed family at the dinner table. “Great night out,” Joe wrote on Instagram after the fabulous night. “I truly appreciate & hope i will continue to be present in my best friend life. A great person, mom, and confident individual. @teresagiudice @louiearuelas great meeting you and your boy?.”
Joe and Teresa finalized their divorce in September after 20-years. Shortly after, Teresa went public with Luis “Louie” Ruelas. During a March episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” Teresa admitted that Louie and Joe had a phone call before the meet-up.
“Louie wanted to go to the Bahamas and meet [Joe], which I thought was the most amazing thing ever,” She told Andy Cohen at the time. “He said he just wanted to talk to him and let him know he’s not trying to take his place or anything. But he just wanted to meet him, ’cause I have daughters.”
Interestingly enough, the dinner came on the same night that “Real Housewives of New Jersey” aired on Bravo. The March 31 episode featured Teresa’s brother trashing Joe, something which she felt like she had to address on social media.
“Tonight’s episode is hard for my girls and I,” she wrote on Instagram. “Joe is the father to my children & even though we split I respect his relationship with my daughters so it’s hard for them to see my brother disparage him, for the sake of my daughters who have already been through so much loss. My mother adored Joe & that’s what my girls saw & remember.”
She continued, “I hope from this point we can all move forward on a more positive note for the sake of our family. ❤️ ❤️❤️❤️”
