Teresa Giudice and Luis Ruelas are looking forward to the holidays as they settle into their new house in New Jersey.

Ahead of the highly anticipated premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12, an insider tells Hollywood Life that after moving into their $3.35 million home, the couple is planning for a much-needed vacation with the four daughters she shares with ex-husband Joe Giudice, including Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana, and the two sons he shares with his ex.

"Teresa wants to go away with Louie and all of their kids around Christmas time this year to somewhere tropical and warm and escape the cold East Coast weather,” the insider said. “Her kids love him and his kids love her. They really are turning into one big blended family.”

As fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will recall, Giudice and Ruelas publicly confirmed their relationship on Instagram around this time last year. And, just months later, they purchased a 7,728 square-foot mansion.

After finalizing her divorce from ex Joe in September of last year, Giudice could be headed for a second marriage with Ruelas as they continue to look forward to their future together.

"They are very serious and friends wouldn’t be surprised to see them engaged soon,” a source told Hollywood Life recently, adding that Giudice has “never been happier, is so in love” and that Luis “treats her really, really well.”

“He’s great to her daughters, too,” the insider added of Ruelas.

The source went on to say that Giudice would love to be with Ruelas forever.

“Teresa is in a completely different place than she was a couple of years ago. It’s amazing. The house is a fresh start for her and she’s ready," the insider continued. "Teresa feels like this is it for her when it comes to her relationship with Louie. She’s honestly never been happier and is in the happiest, healthiest relationship she’s ever been in. She absolutely could see herself marrying Louie.”

During her own interview with the outlet, Melissa Gorga said she believes Giudice and Ruelas are in it for the long haul when it comes to their relationship.

"I just don’t think he’s a fling,” Teresa’s sister-in-law and Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Melissa Gorga told Hollywood Life in May. “I think that they’re very serious about each other and they love each other very much. I could tell if he was a fling and he just doesn’t feel like a fling.”
