- Teresa Giudice stepped out for a date night with boyfriend Luis Ruelas on Tuesday
- The couple posed for the camera before heading to their destination
- A day prior, Joe Giudice shared a cryptic post about “letting go” on Instagram
Teresa Giudice is seemingly unbothered by Joe Giudice’s controversial post about “letting go” on Instagram as she stepped out for a date night with her new man.
The 48-year-old “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star took to Instagram Tuesday to share a photo of her and her boyfriend Luis “Louie” Ruelas, 46, smiling for the camera moments before stepping out in New York for their date.
The couple looked stylish in the snap, with Teresa rocking a violet and soft lilac open sweater over a purple shirt and blue high-waisted jeans. She also wore large hoop earrings and styled her hair in a curly ponytail.
On the other hand, Ruelas sported a soft brown cardigan over a dark gray V-neck top and a pair of black denim pants. He accessorized with a white smartwatch.
“Date night [heart emoji] #love #springnights #newyork #meduza jeans,” she captioned the snap that quickly caught the attention of her followers.
Many praised Teresa’s look in the photo by flooding the comments section with words such as “beautiful,” “stunning” and “gorgeous.”
“You look so good! So happy and in love,” one fan wrote.
“What a beautiful couple. I’m happy for the two of you,” another added.
Meanwhile, a few pointed out that Ruelas somehow looked like Teresa’s ex-husband in the photo.
“Boy oh boy looking like joe u sure got a type,” one netizen commented.
“He looks like a young version of Joe,” another stated.
Teresa’s post comes a day after Joe took to his personal Instagram account to share a cryptic post quoting author Anjum Choudhary’s words about letting go.
“Sometimes you just have to let go without closure for the sake of your own sanity,” the message read.
The former reality TV star, also 48, received a lot of supportive messages in the comments. Many of his fans encouraged him to move on and focus on more important things. A few attacked him for not treating Teresa well when they were still together.
Teresa and Joe called it quits in December 2019 after 20 years of being together as husband and wife. The former filed for divorce shortly after announcing their split, and it was finalized in September last year.
The exes share four daughters together — Gia, 20, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11. Post-split, they decided to remain amicable for their children.
“Parenting should always be about giving your children the best outcomes for every situation. I believe we deserve to all be happy and our children will thank us for it,” Joe told Us Weekly in April.
After her split from Joe, Teresa started seeing Ruelas, and they have since been inseparable. On Mother’s Day, the businessman took the reality TV actress and her daughters to a shopping trip at the Hamptons, as per Page Six.
On the same day, Ruelas proudly professed his love for Teresa in a sweet Instagram post. He shared a picture of them posing for the camera in their backyard and wrote a lengthy caption for his girlfriend.
“Happy Mother’s Day Sweetheart! if I I could give you one gift right now it would be the ability to see yourself thru everyone’s eyes and only then would you realize how special amazing and LOVED you are by everyone. Thank you for everything you do. Love you,” Ruelas wrote.
