Erika Girardi has always lived her life out loud. However, there has long been one part of her life she has kept more private: her son, Tommy.
Erika has dropped a few hints about her son, who is from her first marriage, over the years, such as that he's in his 20s, he works as a police officer, and he even lived with Erika and her husband, Tom Girardi, in their Pasadena palace.
Unfortunately, we have yet to properly meet Erika's son on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. When asked if he will ever appear on RHOBH during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in January 2019, the answer was "probably not." "I don't think so, no," she said. "You know, he has a private life; he's a police officer."
So for those who have been dying to know what Erika's son looks like, we finally have the answer. Erika shared the first photo of her son on her Instagram on May 5. The pic shows Tommy standing proudly in his police uniform. "People say we look alike," Erika wrote in the caption to the post.
We certainly think so!
Erika has been opening up more about her personal life than ever before this season of RHOBH. Not only did we get to see a photo of Erika's son when he was a kid in the April 22 episode of RHOBH, but she also opened up to Garcelle Beauvais about how much it meant to her for her husband to be so welcoming toward her son. "That's the one thing I loved most about Tom when my son was younger was that he welcomed him with open arms," Erika shared with tears in her eyes. "I'm very thankful. That's my guy."
