For The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, Teresa Giudice, and her husband, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, their kids mean everything to them. Since the couple blended their families together after tying the knot in August 2022, both Teresa and Louie could not be happier and have really been open about what it's been like to raise all their kids together.

How to Watch

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

"We've all leaned into our relationships, and our love for each other," Louie said during a panel at BravoCon 2023. "We've all grown together."

This is apparent in Louie's throwback Instagram post, where he shared a series of photos of his two sons, Nicholas and Louie Jr., that he shares with his wife from a previous marriage. He accompanied this with the sweetest message for them, where he expressed his gratitude for them being in his life.

Louie took to Instagram in December, where he shared an old holiday photo of Nicholas and Louie Jr. as little kids, along with two photos of them all grown up. In the current photos, both boys have the sweet smiles on their faces, but they look just a little bit older.

"Then and Now — My two amazing sons have been the source of endless joy, teaching me more than they'll ever know," he wrote in the caption of the post. "Their patience and love have shaped me into the father and friend I strive to be every day. Grateful for this role and the daily growth it brings. LOVE YOU beyond words."

Inside Louie Ruelas and Teresa Giudice's Blended Family

While Louie's sons love making time for their dad — as evidenced in this Instagram post of Louie Jr. working out with him at the gym — they also love hanging out with their stepsisters. Teresa's daughters have posted a number of photos and videos with their two stepbrothers, whether they're hitting the ski slopes, or chilling on a rooftop in New York City together.

"The girls embrace Louie and it's beautiful," Teresa told People in December 2022. "Little Louie hangs out with the girls all the time, they go out together. I treat him like he's my own, and of course, Nicholas, too. Every time Nicholas leaves, he always says, 'When am I coming back?' He always wants to know...The girls have embraced Nicholas. They let Nicholas hang out with them, with their friends when they're all hanging out at the house."
