Gia, the 21-year-old daughter of Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice, took to social media to share her family's first holiday since her mom remarried and tied the knot with Luis "Louie" Ruelas

In the glamorous family portrait, shared to Instagram on Tuesday, Dec. 27, Teresa, 50, and her new hubby are seen posing together in matching black and white ensembles, while the brood of children from their new blended family pose behind them. 

"First official Xmas card❤️🎄" Gia captioned the photo, which features her posing with her three sisters, Teresa's other daughters from her first marriage, Gabriella, 18, Milania, 16 and Audriana, 13. Louie's son Louie Jr., 19— also from a previous relationship—is seen in the family snap as well, while his brother Nicholas, 21, was notably missing since he wasn't feeling well at the time of the shoot. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star also shared the holiday photo to her own Instagram page this week, writing, "Happy Holidays from our family to yours!" Teresa and Louie blended their family earlier this year, after exchanging vows in a romantic New Jersey ceremony back in August

"2022 was such an amazing year for us and I'm excited to make new memories, embrace more new opportunities, take more chances, and continue my path of spiritual growth and healing in 2023," she added. "Sending so much love to all of you and wishing you a beautiful and happy New Year!"

Teresa also talked to People about her hopes for 2023, explaining that she aims to avoid "toxicity" and "have a great time" this year, even despite her ongoing feud with brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga. "I just want peace, love, happiness and health," the reality star stated. 

"Life is short, it's very valuable, so you have to value the time that you have on this Earth and surround yourself with good people, good vibes, people that are happy for you," she continued. "It's really important, and especially my children, I want them to see that also."
