Although The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice has publicly declared she is “done” having kids after raising four daughters with husband Joe Giudice, In Touch can exclusively reveal that she and Joe are seriously considering trying for another baby in hopes of adding a boy to their brood.
“Joe really wants a boy,” Teresa, 40, confides in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. “And he said we should get a surrogate to carry it!”
Teresa refuses to get pregnant again, a show insider tells In Touch, but she is considering Joe’s demand for surrogacy: “He is really pressuring her,” the source explains. “If that’s what he wants, she may just give in.”
Teresa has been eager for a son in the past— especially after her rival and sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, gave birth to her first son. “After her brother’s wife had Gino (now 5), Teresa was dying for a boy, too,” a second insider tells In Touch.
In their final attempt to conceive a boy, the insider tells In Touch exclusively, Teresa even underwent in vitro fertilization in 2009, but she gave birth to their fourth daughter, Audriana, 3, instead.
A Teresa pal tells In Touch, “Teresa’s happy with her family the way it is; she loves her four girls.” But if they decide to go through with the surrogacy plan, Teresa already has her boy’s name picked out: “Franco,” Teresa says, “after my father-in-law.”
