"Louie's older son has autism, so that's an adjustment for our family, and [we're] doing a lot of charity work for the autism foundation," Teresa told Us Weekly in February 2023. "The girls are so amazing with him...we love and adore him."

"As a mom, you never know if you're doing a great job," she continued. "But then looking at my girls to see how they interact with Nicholas, I'm like, 'Oh my God, thank you God. I'm doing a great job.'"
