REAL Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia’s 20th birthday on Friday with her new boyfriend, Luis Ruelas.
The 48-year-old reality star began dating Luis a few months ago, after her divorce from her ex-husband, Joe, last year, as he continues to live in Italy.

They all sang Happy Birthday to Gia as she stood behind a lit-up white cake with her name on it.
The video ended with Luis smiling at his girlfriend’s daughter.

They co-parent their four daughters – Gia, 20, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12 – and the kids visited him in Italy in December 2019 and again this past November.
