Gia Giudice Says Stepbrother Louie Ruelas Jr. Is One of the “Real Ones”

The RHONJ daughter also spent her final game day at Rutgers University with her younger stepbrother.

Ever since Teresa Giudice and Luis “Louie” Ruelas tied the knot in August, it’s been nothing but love, love, love between their kids. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 14 premiere May 5th at 8/9c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shares Gia (21), Gabriella (18), Milania (16), and Audriana (13) with her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, while her new husband, Louie, has sons Nicholas (21) and Louie Jr. (19), and it looks like the newlyweds are seamlessly blending their families together.

On November 21, Teresa’s eldest posted to Instagram a series of snapshots with her pals, including her stepbrother (in the third photo).

“Keep the real ones close,” she captioned the pictures, along with a red heart emoji. 

Shortly before Gia referred to Louie Jr. as one of the “real ones,” she spent her final football game day at Rutgers University with the teen. Like Gia, who is a senior at the New Jersey school, Louie Jr. is also in college. He attends Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, New Jersey.

“Last game day,” Gia captioned the photo of her posing with her stepbrother before the November 19 game. The step-siblings wore matching vests and sneakers, and they coordinated their tops for the picture (Gia opted for Rutgers red leggings to complete her look).

“Awwww love you both,” Teresa wrote in the comments of her daughter’s post. 

Gia’s school may not have won the game, but she’s clearly winning in the family department.

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