The mom of four is dating a 46-year-old businessman after her split with Joe Giudice and has now made her relationship with him Instagram official
If you're a 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' fan, then you know Teresa Giudice has had it tough when it comes to love. The 48-year-old reality TV star finalized her divorce from her ex-husband, Joe Giudice, in September, ending a 20-year marriage. Having spoken about how she wants a different kind of relationship compared to the one she had with her husband, it turns out that Teresa has found just that, with her new boyfriend, Luis 'Louie' Ruelas. Teresa went on to make her relationship official on Instagram, with a picture and a caption that read, "The BEST thing that came out of 2020".
If you're wondering who exactly is Teresa's new man, here's all you need to know.
What is his net worth?
Ruelas is the co-founder and Executive VP of Business Development at Digital Media Solutions, which is based out of Clearwater, Florida. The 46-year-old co-founded the company back in 2012. His firm offers a range of marketing solutions. Being a known name in the digital response marketing industry and the founder of his own agency, Ruelas's current net worth clocks in at over $2 million. According to Page Six, he resides in Allendale, New Jersey.
Big on charity
While he strongly advocates spending time with youngsters with particular needs, Ruelas is also an active philanthropist, having fed over 300 households in Harlem, New York and worked with JL Blessings, a non-profit that assists homeless people in New Jersey.
Dating since November
Although Teresa made the official announcement only recently on Instagram, Teresa posted to Facebook back in November that she was "excited to reveal my new boyfriend". She later went on to confirm his identity once her divorce with Joe was finalized. She also spoke about her new relationship on 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen', saying she was in a new romance and wanted to take things slowly. "Well, it's fairly new as I told you, so I'm taking things slow and we'll see where it goes from there," she said.
Joe and Teresa co-parenting
After ending a 20-year marriage, Joe and Teresa still maintain a cordial relationship, although not a romantic one. While Teresa has found love, turns out, her ex-husband, Joe, is also dating. Joe confirmed that he is, in fact, dating a lawyer, when he appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show'. Joe, stays in Italy now after serving his 41-month sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. He was also briefly under ICE custody. Although Joe is in Italy and Teresa in The USA, both of them are committed to continuing co-parenting their four daughters-Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15 and Audriana 11. Also a parent, Ruelas is father to two sons.
