Joe Giudice Is a New Man After His Release From ICE Custody — See His Weight Loss Transformation

A new man! Joe Giudice looks almost unrecognizable after he was released from ICE custody and sent on his way to Italy to await the verdict on his deportation appeal. It’s clear that during his prison stay, the 47-year-old was hitting the gym and getting in shape.

Now that Joe is able to roam free overseas, daughter Gia Giudice has been sharing tons of pics of her slimmed-down dad. The 18-year-old posted a photo of Joe and his brother, Pete, on the streets of Italy to Instagram with the caption “So happy [you’re] together right now … enjoy, see you in a few weeks daddy❤️❤️.” Fans couldn’t help but praise Joe in the comments for his epic weight loss transformation.

“He looks so good, oh my gosh! Can’t wait for you all to reunited,” wrote one user while another echoed, “He looks sooo healthy and happy.” A third person chimed in, writing, “Looks like a new man.”

One day before Gia posted a rare full-body photo of her dad, she gave us a taste of his new look in a FaceTime screengrab. In just the headshot, fans could see that he had slimmed down a ton and was in high spirits. “One of the happiest moments of my life,” Gia captioned the pic. “Love you so much daddy, so happy you’re free. See you so soon,” she added.

In Touch previously reported that Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud. Since Joe is not an American citizen, he is eligible to be deported back to his home country of Italy after completing his sentence. Joe was transferred to ICE custody after he was released from prison back in March. He has remained in custody ever since and was even denied bond last month.

Although Joe is not allowed to await his verdict back in New Jersey, he was granted release from ICE custody as long as he returned to Italy. On Friday, October 11, Joe boarded a plane back to his home country. Scroll through the gallery below and check out Joe’s epic weight loss transformation.
