Jennifer Aydin is celebrating the newest addition to her family. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member recently revealed that her brother, Michael, has welcomed a baby boy with his wife, Melda, whom he married last year.
Jennifer shared sweet photos of her newborn nephew in an Instagram post on June 19, along with a couple snapshots from Michael’s 2019 wedding. “Dear Michael, congratulations on the birth of your new baby boy, John Bryan,” she wrote in the caption.
Jennifer went on to wish her brother a safe flight as he prepares to move to Turkey to be with his family. “It’s been a rough couple months, I know,” she wrote. “With the closing of the jewelry store and the decision to move to Turkey to be with your family and all of these delays to getting you there, but all I can say is be patient and have faith that everything happens for a reason. One door closes and another one opens.”
The mom of five went on to conclude, “Life is a gift. And it’s time for you to start enjoying it, finally! Give Melda and my cute little nephew a big hug and kiss from me!!! We all love you so so so much! Never forget that!”
In May, Jennifer announced the closing of her brother's business, John Michaels Jewelry, in Woodbury, Long Island. The New Jersey mom, whose family has deep ties to the jewelry industry, called it the "end of an era," but said she and her family were looking forward to a new beginning. As she wrote at the time, "Cheers!! To a new chapter!!"
