Jacqueline Laurita has come a long way since her time on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and her family is now all grown up.

How to Watch

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

The RHONJ alum had appeared on RHONJ in Season 1 to Season 7 and a lot has changed in her life since she stepped away. The mom to three kids — daughter, Ashlee Holmes, and sons, Chris "CJ" and Nicholas Laurita — and her husband, Chris Laurita, moved to Las Vegas before ending up in Orange County, California last year.

The Laurita boys have grown so much in this process, too. Days after sharing a new update on her son, Nicholas, Jacqueline took to her Instagram account, where she gave a much welcomed and rare update on her oldest son, CJ.

Jacqueline posted the adorable selfie of her now grown son and his girlfriend, Gia, to her Instagram feed on April 17, where she gushed about him and gave an update on what he's doing today.

CJ can be seen next to his girlfriend, Gia (not to be confused with Gia Giudice) staring into the camera, and he's sporting a beard, mustache, and gold chain, looking so much older than the last time viewers saw him on screen.

"This is my other handsome son CJ that some of you confuse with Nick sometimes," Jacqueline wrote in the caption of the post. "He works with his dad. CJ is 21 (22 at the end of May). This is his gorgeous, sweet girlfriend Gia that he's known since the 5th grade. They're like an old married couple. They're very cute."

Some RHONJ cast members took to the comments to gush over CJ, who was just six years old when RHONJ filming began. "Beautiful couple," Teresa Giudice wrote.

"They are beautiful I absolutely love her style," Dolores Catania added.

"An old married couple?" Jacqueline's daughter, Ashlee asked. "He buys this b*tch Chanel. I've never been gifted Chanel."

It pays to be CJ. Jacqueline's husband, according to his Instagram bio, is the CEO and founder of Velocity Global Brands, spending his time between New York City and Irvine, California. While it's just a little unclear what CJ does while working for him, especially since he keeps a low profile, he does look so happy now.

Where is Jacqueline Laurita now?

The RHONJ alum swapped coasts and is now living in Orange County, California, where she has been spending plenty of time by the ocean and catching up with some of The Real Housewives of Orange County alums. Jacqueline has been enjoying the beach, and taking in all of the sights of the Pacific Coast Highway with her youngest son, Nick.

"We moved to Orange County, CA last June and are absolutely LOVING IT," Jacqueline wrote in the caption of a January Instagram post.
