Jacqueline Laurita: My Son Nicholas Has Autism

The NJ Housewife and husband Chris open up to People in a candid interview.

Jacqueline and Chris Laurita

Jacqueline Laurita and her husband Chris are speaking out about a very personal matter this week, telling People magazine that their son Nicholas is autistic.

The three-year-old boy had been intentionally kept away from the Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras this past season by Jacqueline and Chris after they began seeing some signs that his development was regressing. "We had no idea what was going on," Jacqueline tells People in the interview. She adds that she worries about him being independent in his later years, and says that she spends "all my time researching what we can do for him."

Chris opens up in the interview as well, telling the magazine: "You never want to think that your child isn't perfectly healthy. We didn't want to believe it was true."

Nicholas was born in June of 2009 and is the third child for Jacqueline. She has another boy, CJ, with Chris and daughter Ashlee from a previous marriage.

The full article is in this week's People magazine.
