Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has moved on with her life following her divorce from ex-husband Joe Giudice — and has a new man to spend the holidays with.

OK! previously reported that the 48-year-old was dating New Jersey-based businessman Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

“The relationship is very new, but both are very happy,” a source told Page Six earlier this month.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted the two lovebirds at a football game, showing what appearing to be Ruelas' arm wrapped around her waist.

The news comes two months after Teresa and Joe finalized their divorce — their 20-year marriage came to an end after Joe was ordered to return to his native Italy following his 41-month prison sentence for fraud. The former reality TV couple share four daughters together: Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 14, and Audrina, 11.


Although Teresa is excited to move on with her love life, she is taking things “very slow,” according to Page Six. “They are both happy. Right now it’s very low key and casual. One step at a time.”

So who is this new man that is vying for Teresa’s heart?

OK! gets to know Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

He Is An Entrepreneur

Ruelas launched his first business at 19-year-old. He was continuously recognized as an amazing boss with the company Digital Media Solutions — which, according to their site, "is the leading global adtech company leveraging innovative, performance-driven brand and marketplace solutions to connect consumers and advertisers."

He Loves His Family... Just Like Teresa

The 46-year-old has two sons of his own. Although, Teresa has four daughters, a source told Page Six that the couple is "not that far ahead yet planning wise," on whether or not they will join the two families for Christmas.

He Was Sued By His Ex For ‘Abusive Behavior’

In a lawsuit filed on April 15, it alleges Ruelas "abandoned his ex-fiancée in Provincetown, Massachusetts and then padlocked her out of the New Jersey home that they shared.” It also claims, “After some other instances of controlling, abusive behavior, Louie gave his ex-fiancée various gifts to induce her to continue her relationship with him.” She ultimately dropped the suit in May, it is unclear if a settlement was reached.
