Looking good, Joe Giudice! The Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s daughter Milania Giudice posted several photos of her father enjoying a day at the beach in Italy on Tuesday, October 22, via her Instagram Stories. In the snaps, the 47-year-old showed off his slimmer physique — sans shirt — while posing in front of the ocean. “Can’t wait to be on the beach with you,” the 14-year-old wrote. “I love you beyond words, buddy.”

Despite being away from his family, Joe — who shares daughters Gia, 18, Gabriella, 15, Milania, and Audriana, 10, with his wife, Teresa Giudice — seems to be adjusting to living abroad just fine. Joe’s daughters have shared a bunch of snaps from him recently — from him hanging out with his brother, Pete, to kickboxing at a gym — and it looks like he is making the most of his time ever since he was released from ICE custody on October 11.

Fans are still in shock at how good Joe looks after he spent time behind bars. One person wrote, “He looks so good, oh my gosh! Can’t wait for you all to be reunited,” while another echoed, “Looks like a new man.”

After Joe was deported, the Bravo personality spoke out for the first time about how he was feeling about his current situation. “Life, it’s always better to look through the windshield and not through the rearview mirror, you know?” he said in a video message posted by Bravo’s The Daily Dish on Monday, October 21. “It’s a much bigger picture when you’re looking through the windshield. But at the end of the day, people make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect. I’ve learned a valuable lesson from all this, and I know my family is the most important thing to me, but it’s better that I’m out here than in there,” he said, referring to his ICE custody release.

The businessman concluded the message by explaining how much he appreciates his friends and family. “I just want to let you know that I love you, and I’m always here for you,” he said. “You know that.”

Joe completed a 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud charges in March and was immediately transferred to ICE custody. Since Joe is not an American citizen, a judge ordered that he be deported to Italy — where he was born. His legal team filed an appeal on his behalf, but his bond request was denied in September. However, Joe’s request to be released from ICE custody was granted, and he boarded a plane to Italy in October.

Teresa, 47, “already has a trip to Italy planned” with her four daughters. “She’ll be taking all her girls,” a source told Us Weekly. “Teresa and all the girls will be visiting sooner rather than later. It’s fast approaching.”

However, before they visit, the brunette beauty and her husband will be filming a segment with Andy Cohen on Sunday, October 27, to chat about all of the changes in their lives. “Joe and I will be sitting down with @Andy to discuss everything that has been happening with us and our family the past few months,” Teresa tweeted on October 21.

Well, it looks like Joe is finally happy after a tough couple of years.
