Jacqueline Laurita showed a photo of her 21-year-old son CJ – who was  6-year-old when The Real Housewives of New Jersey began – and his girlfriend whom he’s known “since the 5th grade,” before Teresa Giudice reacted.

Jacqueline left the show before season 8, amid her and Teresa’s feud. For many years the costars shaded each other in the press, until their recent reconciliation.

“This is my other handsome son CJ that some of you confuse with [his brother] Nick sometimes,” wrote Jacqueline in an April 17 Instagram post. “He works with his Dad. CJ is 21 (22 at the end of May).”

She then introduced CJ’s girlfriend.

“This is his gorgeous, sweet girlfriend Gia,” she shared. “He’s known [her] since the 5th grade. They’re like an old married couple. They are very cute. 🥰”

Teresa reacted in the comments.

“Beautiful couple,” said the star, with two heart emojis.

Fans also shared their reactions.

“Nooo🤦‍♀️CJ is still 10 in my head,” said one viewer. “They grow up too quickly 😍”

“Omg can’t believe that’s CJ,” wrote another.

“At first glance I thought this was Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra!” said a third fan. “Very sweet couple ❤️”

“I always thought he was a great big brother to Nick! I am sure he still is,” wrote a fourth. “He has a kind heart!”

“He has such a sweet face,” added a different user. “Great job raising two boys and one beautiful daughter (that’s now a grown a** woman too, WOW).”
