• Joe Giudice reunited with his daughter Gia in Nassau, Bahamas
  • He also got to meet her boyfriend, Christian Carmichael
  • Joe shared a heartwarming message online after the reunion

Joe Giudice had a blast when he reunited with his eldest daughter Gia in the Bahamas.

The former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, 49, revealed on Instagram that he had a wonderful reunion with his first daughter with ex-wife Teresa Giudice, also 49.

On Saturday, Joe shared a snap of Gia, 20, smiling to the camera while cuddling a puppy. In the caption, the businessman shared that his daughter was doting on her new friend, which was still unnamed.

In a follow-up post, Joe shared a video showing him and Gia greeting each other while looking at the camera. From the looks of things, the two stepped out for some evening fun in Nassau. “Hanging with my [black heart emoji],” he wrote in the caption.

Although not visible in the clip, Gia’s boyfriend, Christian Carmichael, could be heard in the audio, and his hand was also seen at one point when he pushed the buttons in the elevator for the father and daughter duo.

Days before their reunion, the former reality star did share on Instagram that aside from meeting up with his daughter in the capital of the Bahamas, he was also meeting her boyfriend.

In a video he uploaded at the time, he poked fun at Christian saying he’s meeting “Danny” from the hit movie “Grease.” He was actually referencing the costume that Christian rocked with Gia when they dressed up as Danny and Sandy for Halloween.

Following their reunion, Joe shared a heartwarming message with his followers on the social media platform to remind them of the things that they should treasure in life.

“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish them,” the message read.

Fans were pleased that Joe got to bond with one of his daughters since he is unable to travel back to the U.S. after getting deported to his home country, Italy, in 2019.

“It’s so nice to see the love [that] you have for your daughter. Not every dad is there for their daughters in this way,” one fan commented in one of his recent posts.

“They have the best relationship with him! He’s awesome, he’s fine, he’s funny and he’s a great protector,” another wrote.

Aside from Gia, Joe also shares three other daughters with Teresa, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12.

Meanwhile, Gia’s trip to Nassau with her boyfriend comes a few weeks after Teresa got engaged to her boyfriend Luis Ruelas, 46, while they were vacationing in Greece.

In a post-engagement interaction with her fans via Amazon Live, Teresa admitted that she “had no idea” Ruelas was going to propose to her during their getaway in Porto Heli. She also said that she got emotional during the “really magical” moment between them.
