The 43-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star told fans “‘Merry Christmas. Happy New Year….all of you should go be with your families and your loved ones,’” her lawyer, James J. Leonard Jr., said (via E! News).
Teresa‘s family, including husband Joe, and their four daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6, were waiting for their mom’s arrival.
“It was very emotional,” James continued. “It was a private moment but it was very emotional, very powerful and it was something to see. Gia was up early this morning and then the younger ones started to get up. I think they got a little bit of sleep. I got no sleep. Teresa says that she didn’t sleep at all. Joe slept a little bit. I think everyone is going to sleep well tonight, myself included.”
