Teresa Giudice Is "Bonding" with Her New Sisters-in-Law: "Sweet Loves"
The RHONJ cast member is getting to know fiancé Luis "Louie" Ruelas' family on an epic vacation.
As things started getting serious between Teresa Giudice and her now-fiancé, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, of course, started introducing her special someone to her loved ones, from her daughters to longtime friends like Dina Manzo to even her ex-husband, Joe Giudice. And now, Teresa is getting to know Louie's family in a big way.
Teresa and Louie are currently on a gorgeous getaway in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico — but this isn't one of their usual romantic vacations. This time, the RHONJ couple is joined by Louie's sisters, who will become Teresa's new sisters-in-law once they officially tie the knot.
Teresa introduced us to her new family members in a post on Instagram on December 29, which included two photos of the ladies all smiles together in this tropical paradise. "Sweet Loves," Teresa captioned the snaps, along with hashtags, including "bonding" and "friendship."
That's not the only fun that was captured during this family vacay. Louie also shared some videos in his Instagram Stories of Teresa dancing as a saxophonist wowed the crowd at Taboo Los Cabos. We wonder if Teresa picked up any tips that she can use on the saxophone that Louie gifted her, which you can see in a Bravo Insider exclusive video, as well as the RHONJ Season 12 trailer, above.
Louie's brother, David, was also among those tagged in his Instagram Stories during the trip.
Teresa and Louie got in plenty of alone time on the vacation, sharing the most beautiful pics together taken during the trip. "Mi Amore," Teresa captioned one photo of the couple.
"When we discovered Love, it was like discovering fire for the first time," Teresa gushed about another photo of the pair, along with the hashtags, "hearts on fire," "bae", "love, love, love," and what appears to be their couple name, "Louresa."
Louie returned the love with his own touching tribute to Teresa on December 27. "As hard as I try, mere words aren't enough to express how I feel about you," he wrote in a post that featured a photo of the couple embracing in Cabo. "LOVE YOU forever."
This vacation isn't the first time Teresa met Louie's family. She previously revealed at the RHONJ Season 11 reunion that she had met Louie's sons and his ex-wife, who, Teresa said, was "lovely." One of Louie's sons even now lives with the couple and Teresa's daughters in the home they share together in New Jersey.
Teresa and Louie's loved ones recently came together to celebrate the couple at their engagement party earlier this month. "My Family. Thank you for always being there for me and loving me and my children unconditionally. My two handsome sons Nicholas [and] Louie Jr, My two beautiful sisters Veronica and Jennifer my brother David [and] my loving parents Iris and Louie Sr. Love you guys," Louie captioned a group photo of the whole family during the event, which he posted on Instagram on December 6. "Welcome to the family [Teresa]."
Teresa then shared in the comments section of Louie's post, "So happy to be part of your family."
Louie later posted a pic of himself, his brother, David, his sister, Veronica, Teresa, and her youngest daughter, Audriana, getting in some "last minute Xmas shopping" on December 24.
Christmas Day was all about family for the couple as Teresa and Louie celebrated the holiday with their kids under one roof.
We'll hear all about Teresa and Louie's relationship and the blending of their families in the new season of RHONJ premiering Tuesday, February 1 at 8/7c. Catch up with what Teresa and her fellow New Jersey Housewives have been up to since Season 11, and get your first look at Season 12 at the top of this post.
