The #RHONJ cousins grow up so fast, don't they?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey are Back!

This week is going to be full of partying for Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo. The sisters-in-law are celebrating the birthdays of their respective sons, CJ Laurita and Albie and Chris Manzo, respectively.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

CJ and Chris actually share a birthday, May 24. CJ is turning 14 while Chris will be celebrating his 27th. Jacqueline wished the boys well on Instagram Monday, along with a too-cute throwback pic of herself and CJ. "My little CJ is turning 14 tomorrow!!! Sweetest kid ever! We love him so much!" she wrote in the post.


Just take a beat and let it sink in that CJ is now 14 years old.


RHONJ alum and Manzo'd with Children matriarch Caroline also sent her love to the birthday boys on Instagram Tuesday. "Wishing my beautiful boy @chris_manzo a very happy birthday," she wrote to Chris. "Never stop smiling Christopher, Mom and Dad love you dearly."


Caroline also had a heartfelt message for CJ. "Happy, happy, birthday to CJ !" she posted on Instagram. "One of the kindest souls I've ever known. We love you!"


As if that wasn't enough to celebrate this week, Caroline's eldest child Albie is also turning 30 on Friday, May 27.


Albie and his little bro already kicked off their birthday celebrations earlier this week.

And in case you need a blast from the past to remind you just how much we've seen the Manzo kids grow up over the years, including sister Lauren Manzo, look no further than this vintage pic from an early season of RHONJ Albie posted on Instagram last week.

Just... Wow.... #tbt #RHONJ #ViewerSubmittedPhoto @bravotv
