Jacqueline Laurita’s son Nicholas is growing up fast. The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum recently celebrated her youngest child’s 11th birthday, marking the special occasion in a sweet Instagram post.
On June 11, Jacqueline took to Instagram to post a photo of Nicholas rocking a party hat. The mom of three also dedicated a proud message to her son in the caption of the image, writing, “Happy 11th Birthday to my beautiful boy, Nicholas! He always lights up a room! He makes me smile and laugh everyday with his loving, endearingly quirky ways. I love everything about him! Everything!”
She also went on to note how much Nicholas, who has autism, has progressed over the years, writing, “He works so hard and has come so far! We are so very proud of him! He was so excited for his birthday! He hasn’t stopped smiling today! My heart is full!”
This marks Nicholas’ first birthday since the family’s cross-country move from New Jersey to Nevada last summer. In January, Jacqueline shared an update on how Nicholas is adapting to their new home. "Nick is REALLY loving school and he’s adjusting well!” she wrote at the time.
