Teresa Giudice is enjoying some fun in the sun with boyfriend Luis "Louie" Ruelas.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 48, shared a photo from their sunny vacation on Friday, writing in the caption, "You make my heart ❤️ smile @louiearuelas."

In the photo, Giudice strikes a pose in a black bikini and pink cover-up as she stands next to Ruelas, who is wearing a pair of gray and white shorts, in front of the waves.

The reality star capped off her beach look with oversized sunglasses and a straw hat.

Giudice's Bravo family were quick to react to her sizzling snap with Ruelas, with her RHONJ castmate Dolores Catania writing in the comments section, "🔥🔥🔥."

"So happy for you," The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Vicki Gunvalson wrote, while Tamra Judge replied, "🔥 🔥."

Giudice went public with Ruelas shortly after finalizing her divorce with ex husband Joe Giudice in September. The two were married for 20 years and share daughters Gia, 20, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11.

The mother of three previously opened up about what she wanted out of her next relationship, saying she was looking for a change after being married to Joe for so long.

"I never remember laughing with Joe. I don't," she told Andy Cohen during the RHONJ season 10 reunion in March. "I want someone to talk so sweet to me and be gentle. I want to be beautiful to him. I'm just so done with the whole Italian tough guy. I'm tired of that, I want something different."
