The Giudice family is back together!
Teresa Giudice and her four daughters traveled to Italy this week, reuniting with her husband (and their father) Joe in his native country. Following their reunion, which was reportedly filmed for the current tenth season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," oldest daughter, Gia, shared their first full family photo in four years.
"We're back," the 18-year-old Rutgers student captioned her family selfie, which also includes Gabriella, 15, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 10.

Gia had posted several travel photos on her Instagram Story ahead of the family reunion to let fans know that the trip was happening. Teresa and Joe first confirmed it, though, during their joint interview on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" at the end of October -- Joe's first interview since serving his 41-month prison sentence and another 5 months in an ICE detention facility.
Last October, a judge ordered Joe to be deported back to his native Italy following his prison sentence. He's appealed the ruling twice and is currently waiting for a ruling on his third and final appeal. While a judge denied his request to wait out the appeal ruling at his home in New Jersey, his request to wait in Italy was granted this October.
Teresa and Joe Giudice have been married for 20 years, but they revealed during the "WWHL" interview that the future of their relationship is up in the air. The estranged couple was hesitant about making any decisions until they reunited in person.
"I’m waiting until I get there to see if I feel differently," Teresa told Cohen. "I just feel like when you live apart. … He says the same thing, when he sees me, he may not want this either. We’ll know when we see each other."
"If we stay together, we stay together, if we don’t, we don’t," Joe said. "It’s a conversation, we’ll see. … As long as she’s happy, that’s all that really matters. I’m not going to tell her what to do. If she doesn’t feel like she wants to be with me anymore, then that’s the thing to do."
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" airs on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST
