PHOTO: RHONJ’s Jaqueline Laurita Shares Rare Picture of 20-Year-Old Son C.J. Laurita as Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, and Ashlee Malleo React

Time sure does fly by.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey OG, Jacqueline Laurita, recently shared a rare picture of her 20-year-old son, C.J. Laurita, along with his dad, Chris Laurita, enjoying a round of golf on Instagram.

C.J. was only six years old when he began filming with his famous family on RHONJ but has kept a relatively low profile since The Lauritas exited the reality show juggernaut.

Jacqueline captioned the photo, “Rare picture of my older son C.J. who turned 20 years old in May! He started on [RHONJ] filming his 6th birthday! Where has the time gone? He rarely lets me post pictures of him, but because [my husband, Chris Laurita] posted it, I’m posting it too.”

C.J. was joined on the show by siblings Ashlee Holmes Malleo and Nicholas Laurita, as well as Aunt and former RHONJ housewife, Caroline Manzo.

Ashlee commented on the photo affectionately saying she “loves” the picture.

Aunt Caroline also took notice of the all-grown up C.J. exclaiming in disbelief, “He’s a man. And I just saw him a few months ago, but the shock never wears off. He’s a grown ass man. A handsome man.” adding, “He’s way too big.”

RHONJ alum, Kathy Wakile, also left her sentiments underneath the photo.

“Ummmm omg I had to double take! CJ! God Bless him so handsome, so grown, even more since I saw him last year,” she commented.

Jaqueline and her family were part of RHONJ’s original cast and appeared on the show from 2009-2014, returning 2016, before Jaqueline announced she was leaving the show for good in 2017 following a messy feud with her former friend, Teresa Giudice, surrounding Teresa’s legal woes with the IRS.
