Naturally, fans have also been interested in Gia’s love life ever since she started dating boyfriend Christian Carmichael, but are they still together?

Do Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice Like Christian Carmichael?

Teresa and Joe – who finalized their divorce in September 2020 after more than 20 years of marriage, In Touch confirmed – seemingly approve of their eldest daughter’s beau. 

“Christian is an absolute doll,” a source close to the reality TV family previously told Us Weekly. “The family is just happy that Gia is happy.”

Are Gia Giudice and Christian Carmichael Still Together?

While some fans have pointed out that Gia doesn’t appear in posts on Christian’s Instagram, an insider proved that all is well between the young lovebirds. “Gia has not broken up with her boyfriend. Not true,” the source exclusively told In Touch in September 2022.

“They are still together and news of them breaking up are just rumors,” Dominique Enchinton, owner of Dominton Talent House, exclusively told In Touch separately.

In October 2022, Gia admitted that she and Christian previously experienced a rocky time in their relationship while exclusively speaking to In Touch.

“Our relationship is definitely private,” the reality star said while attending BravoCon in New York City. “We had a little rough patch but we’re back and better than ever.”

While Gia and Christian have continued to keep their romance out of the spotlight, she gave fans a glimpse into a trip they took to Tulum, Mexico, in January 2023.

“Just me & you,” she captioned a series of photos via Instagram of the couple on the romantic getaway.

Are Gia Giudice and Christian Carmichael Engaged?

In January 2022, Gia set the record straight on whether she and Christian privately took their relationship to the next level, telling Celebuzz at the time, “There have been rumors circulating on the internet that my boyfriend and I are secretly engaged. I can confirm the engagement news, specifically, that we are NOT engaged … We are happily together as boyfriend and girlfriend but definitely, there is no engagement here.”

She continued to express the sentiment at BravoCon in October 2022, noting that they’re still not ready to get engaged. “I still have a lot of things to do in my life,” Gia exclusively told In Touch at the time. “I’m going to law school, he’s forming his career right now. But yeah, we’re not opposed to moving in together or doing something like that in the future.”
