Joe Giudice Reveals The Identity Of His New Girlfriend

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice unveiled his new valentine, just in time for the day of love. The reality TV dad was previously married to fan-favorite Teresa Giudice for 20 years before they separated in December 2019 and then officially divorce in September 2020, per People. The exes hit a rough patch after Joe was sentenced to 41-months in prison for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud in March 2016. Teresa served 11 months in prison for the same crimes.

Since Joe is not a United States citizen, he was subjected to deportation and has been living in his home country of Italy since October 2019. His deportation appeal was later denied in April 2020, but his daughters — Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana — seem to be making the best of the situation and are often spotted visiting their dad overseas.

Since the exes went their separate ways, Teresa has been seeing Luis "Louie" Ruelas and she seems smitten with her man, considering all the loved-up snaps she keeps sharing on Instagram. Like her ex, Teresa posted a tribute to her boo for Valentine's Day, writing, "I feel so fortunate to have found love in the most unexpected way, at the most unexpected time." She added, "Thank you for loving me and showing me that it can be Valentine's Day every day when I'm with you." Keep scrolling to see what Joe had to say about his new lady.

Joe Giudice is head-over-heels for his new girlfriend

Valentine's Day seemed like the perfect time for Joe Giudice to reveal the identity of his new girlfriend. He went ahead and shared photos of the brunette beauty on Instagram and tagged her handle @DanielaFitty — short for her full name Daniela Fittipaldi, per People — for the special day.

"Thank you for accepting me and not trying to change me," he began in his heartfelt tribute to his new lady. "Thank you for seeing the best in me. I love the way your eyes light up when [we are] together. I love hearing about what matters to you. I am thankful for you and your family. And most of All I love the way YOU [love] MY KIDS. My life is so much better because you are here with me."

Although Joe didn't share too many specifics about his woman, according to her Instagram bio, she's a fan of home-cooked meals and prioritizes healthy living. Luckily, it looks like Joe's ex Teresa Giudice approves of his new girlfriend, after dropping two red heart emojis in his comments. Joe's fans also took to the comments to congratulate him on finding love. "So happy for you Joe, she's gorgeous," one user wrote, while another added, "You and Teresa both deserve to be happy."
