Joe Giudice isn’t letting distance stop him from showing his appreciation for Teresa Giudice on Mother’s Day. The dad of four, who is currently living in Italy, took to Instagram to post a heartfelt message dedicated to The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom.
Joe shared a video slideshow featuring several family photos of Teresa alongside text that reads “Queen Mother.” In the caption, Joe also expressed his immense gratitude for Teresa, whom he reportedly split from back in November.
“I just want to start by telling you how thankful I am for you. I will never be able to say it enough times. THANK YOU. Thank you for everything,” he wrote.
Joe went on to recognize all of the work that Teresa has done for their four shared daughters, writing, “I know while I’m not around, you will always do whatever needs to be done to make sure our girls are safe. You are [a] beautiful and wonderful mother. I will always be grateful to you.”
In recent months, Joe has been working on building a new life in his native Italy, where he has been living since being released from ICE custody last October. Following news that his deportation appeal to return to America was denied in April, the RHONJ dad took to social media to share that he’s focusing on the future.
"It's a beautiful time for new beginnings! Keep calm, slay, and do jumping jacks!!" he wrote at the time.
Giudice family attorney James J. Leonard also released a statement, telling People that Joe is "very positive about life" and adding that any further appeals "will be discussed with Joe and his immigration counsel in the coming days."
