The Daily Dish How to Holiday

Dolores, Paul, Frank, and Brittany's “Fun" Christmas Together Included the Most Epic Pajamas (PHOTO)

RHONJ's Dolores Catania, Paul Connell, Frank Catania, and Brittany Mattessich had a holiday celebration in eye-catching attire.

Christmas morning for Dolores Catania's family was a festive celebration, as evidenced by this Instagram video of the occasion. Even more festive than the loads of presents? Dolores's ex-husband, Frank Catania, and her current boyfriend Paul "Paulie" Connell's pajamas, which featured some very interesting prints. 

How to Watch

On December 25, Paul hopped on his Instagram Stories to share a peek at his Christmas morning with Dolores, Frank, and Brittany. For the photo op, which included a slew of adorable dogs (a staple of  Dolores' household!), the two couples gathered on the couch as Paul wrote over the Story, "Merry Christmas to all."

Also honoring the holiday were Frank and Paul's eye-popping printed pajamas, which appeared to include face prints of their respective ladies. 

On Frank's bright blue pajama top, we saw a hilariously cute print of Brittany's face along with a dog print throughout. Paul, for his part, wore a black pajama top and pants that were covered in Dolores heads and red hearts. 

"What a fun morning had by all," Paul wrote over the snapshot. "Check out them PJs."

Speaking of matching looks, before the pajamas photo Paul took a video of him and Dolores in the car with similarly grey sweaters. 

"We didn't plan on this matching but ... I'm not mad at it, I think it's kind of cute," Dolores said in the video. "We both came downstairs with the same sweaters on — that's what happened."

Paul then stepped in with a little bit of humor about the Christmas fashions to come: "It beats matching PJs. Who would have matching PJs?"

We love to see the RHONJ couples enjoying Christmas together. Considering how Frank and Brittany also just took the next step in their relationship, it seems there will be many fun holiday moments to come for the group. 

Frank and Brittany shared details about their epic engagement, which featured a wall of red roses and a sign displaying the message "Will you marry me?" 

"We’re Engaged!!!!" Brittany gushed in the caption of her post. In the photos, we also saw candles and red rose petals scattered around the floor, courtesy of Pretty Planners & Events

"I'm so excited to start this next chapter with you along with all [of] the other good things we have going on," Brittany added in her caption.

Brittany concluded in her caption, "Thank you for being you [and] making me the happiest girl in the world. I wouldn’t want to do this life with anyone else other [than] [Frank Catania.] love you so much[,] my fiancé."
