Joe Giudice is staying optimistic as the new year approaches. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 47, shared a heartwarming photo of his four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, who recently visited him in Italy for the holidays on his Instagram account on Monday, December 30. The reality star also revealed his New Year’s resolutions and plans for the month ahead as he settles in his new place of residence.
The reality star began his post by quoting American industrialist, Henry Ford, writing, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”
Joe then acknowledged a few of the adjustments he would be making in the year. He also highlighted the more humbling realities of life in Italy. “In 2020, I may have to learn to be self-restraint with bowl usage, how water heating, or lack of American amenities but I can get accustomed to that cause I get to see these faces again!!! Till next time !!!”
Fans left kind words of encouragement for the father of four. One user wrote, “Stay Strong! You’re an amazing father with a beautiful family! It warms my heart to get to see you spending time with them!” While another user wrote, “Stay strong and have faith.” Adding, “Never give up! These beautiful girls need you.”
A third user wrote a heartfelt message telling Joe how great of a dad he was and how lucky he was to have his now-estranged wife Teresa Giudice as the mother of his children. “You’re an awesome father and just have faith. God will guide you, Joe. And you’re blessed with Teresa as the mother of your children.” Adding, “Your children are beautiful souls. God bless.”
On Thursday, December 17, Joe and Teresa, 47 announced that they were separating after 20 years of marriage. The split came after years filled with alleged affairs, legal troubles, and prison time.
A source close to the two told People, “They discussed their future when Teresa and the girls went to Italy in early November and they agreed that each had to move on.” Adding, “They have been very friendly with one another and are very supportive of each other’s happiness. They still love one another, but as Teresa told Andy Cohen on the Watch What Happens Live special, they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long-distance relationship.”
The insider noted that while Joe and Teresa had decided to separate, there were no plans to divorce and that the pair were focused on raising their four children.
