Joe Giudice reunited with his family in Italy after they traveled to be by his side as he awaits his deportation sentence on Thursday, November 7. His eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, documented their embrace on Instagram. “We’re back,” she captioned the photo with a heart emoji. Joe, 47, can be seen smiling with his four daughters and wife Teresa Giudice.

Friends and family were thrilled to see the reality TV family back together. “YES! 🙏 Love you,” Teresa’s brother, Joe Gorga commented on the sweet selfie. Gia’s prom date and son of Real Housewives of New Jersey costar Dolores Catania, Frank Catania, chimed in writing, “Fam’s back together,” with a heart emoji.

Fans also sent the family well wishes. “So happy for you guys!!! Have a great trip!” one user wrote, while another said, “What a beautiful 😍 reunion. God bless you all … please don’t separate your family.”

The Giudice girls were highly anticipating their trip to Italy to visit their father as a free man. “Never been more excited. Can’t wait to see you, buddy,” Milania, 15, wrote on her Instagram Story from the airplane window. Gia, 18, also documented their travels starting from JFK International Airport to their “pitstop” in Milan and finally joining their dad in Naples.

Gia expressed how hard it has been not having her dad around on a sneak peek of the RHONJ  season 10. “I am going to prom, I’m going to graduation, I am going to college. Those are three big things I want my father here for,” she said in the clip. “Milestones,” added Teresa. “I understand we’re all hurting, but I’m saying it’s a big year for me and I’d want my father here,” Gia explained before breaking down in tears.

Since filming, Joe completed his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud and being held in ICE custody. As Joe is not an American citizen, he was subjected to deportation. He is living in Italy as a free man while he awaits his fate. Luckily, he has been able to communicate with his daughters over FaceTime and Instagram. We are so happy to see the Giudice family reunited, even if it isn’t on American soil.
