Jacqueline Laurita is one fierce mom of three and now we're getting a new look at her life today as a mom to son, Nicholas.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

During the first seven seasons on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jacqueline gave a look inside of her life with husband, Chris Laurita as they raised their three kids — her oldest daughter from a previous relationship, Ashlee Holmes Malleo, and their sons, CJ and Nicholas. Throughout her time on the show, Jacqueline had been open about Nicholas having autism, which was confirmed in 2012. And since leaving the show, she has continued to advocate for her son

After RHONJ, Jacqueline and Chris left New Jersey and headed west to Las Vegas before landing in Orange County, California, in June 2023, due to Chris' business. While Jacqueline seems to be loving her new, sunny locale, according to Jacqueline's newest update on Nicholas, he has been loving it too.

Jacqueline Laurita's New Look at Son, Nicholas

Jacqueline took to her Instagram feed on Tuesday, April 9, where she shared a series of photos and videos from a recent drive that she and Nicholas took on the Pacific Coast Highway. In the video, her son can be seen smiling while he rides in the back seat of the car and looks out the window.

Both Jacqueline and Nick took in the sights of the PCH, admiring the rolling hills, the ocean, and even got to see a bird with a lizard in its mouth. "My handsome Nick just enjoying his weekly weekend drive up and down the PCH and all over the OC," she wrote in the caption of the post. "(I could have gone without seeing the poor little lizard in the bird's mouth. Maybe they're just friends)."

Jacqueline has continued to share her life with Nick, celebrating his wins like him getting straight A's in the 7th grade, highlighting his drawings of people, and sharing videos of him singing.
