Teresa Giudice and Her Daughters Get Ready to See Joe in Italy

As if the first photo of the Giudice family all together again in Italy didn't already melt our hearts enough, well, the latest pics from the reunion have really made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

How to Watch

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

The patriarch of the family, Joe Giudice, has been documenting his reunion with wife Teresa Giudice and their four daughters (Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10) on his new Instagram account since they arrived in Italy earlier this week. On Thursday, November 7, The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband shared several photos and videos of himself out on the town with his girls in Sala Consilina, where he has been staying with his grandmother since he was released from ICE custody on October 11. "Had the best night with my girls," Joe gushed in one post. "So happy you guys are here. My heart is filled."

Joe took Gia, Gabriella, and Milania out dancing after they arrived in Italy with Teresa earlier that day. The Giudices' youngest daughter, Audriana, was too tired from the trip to go out with the family, Joe noted on Instagram.

Joe shared a couple more photos from the night with his "buddy" Milania and Gia. "Happy to have [you] here with me," he gushed in the post featuring a pic with his eldest daughter.

Joe was permitted to be released from ICE custody and await a final decision in his ongoing deportation case in Italy last month. "Life, it's always better to look through the windshield and not through the rearview mirror, you know. It's a much bigger picture when you're looking through the windshield," he said in his first statement since his release in an exclusive video to The Daily Dish, which you can view, below. "But at the end of the day, people make mistakes. Nobody's perfect."

But of course, his loved ones were and always will be on his mind. "I've learned a valuable lesson from all this, and I know my family is the most important thing to me. But it's better that I'm out here than in there," he shared. "I just want to let you know that I love you, and I'm always here for you. You know that."
