For Teresa Giudice, not everything about 2020 was bad.
A year after splitting from longtime husband Joe Giudice, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has moved on with a new man. In November, the TV personality teased fans about her boyfriend, who E! News later learned is Luis "Louie" Ruelas, a businessman, fellow New Jerseyan and father of two.
While Giudice has kept her words about him to a minimum, she recently took a new step in their romance—by going Instagram official. On Tuesday, Dec. 22, the mom of four posted a photo of herself with Ruelas on her page for the first time. Judging by her ultra sweet caption, it sounds like this pair is going strong.
As she wrote, "The BEST thing that came out of 2020."
Earlier in December, the two were snapped by paparazzi while out for a date night in New York City. They were not shy about PDA either as they were photographed embracing in a kiss and holding hands while they walked together. The couple even sported matching face masks.
While appearing virtually on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Nov. 22, Teresa gave the host a brief update on her blossoming relationship.
"It's fairly new," she told Andy Cohen, "so I'm taking things slow and we'll see where it goes from there."
In the meantime, she has the support of famous friends and castmates. As Dina Manzo commented on her new Instagram post, "So so Happy for you."
Co-star Jennifer Aydin echoed, "So happy for you." Margaret Josephs added, "You deserve all the happiness and love."
