RHONJ's Jacqueline Laurita's family is officially expanding (PHOTO)
Looks like we may be seeing a wedding on an upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Ashlee Holmes, the daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, announced that she's engaged to her boyfriend, Pete Malleo, on Thursday. Holmes shared the news on Instagram, writing "I said 'yes.' Thank you for such an amazing day @c3peteo... I'm so excited for this next chapter of our lives."
Laurita is a proud mother-in-law-to-be, and she showed her support by reposting Holmes' Instagram of the couple as well as sharing one of her own. Laurita captioned her photo, "I woke up so happy today knowing my beautiful, grown up 25 year old daughter @asheenicolexx will be in good hands with this thoughtful, considerate, handsome kind gentleman @c3peteo #engaged #beautiful #RHONJ #MustBeOld #smotherinlaw #me."
Judging by her kind words, it's clear that Laurita is excited about Holmes' wedding. Now there's just one question for RHONJ fans: Will we get to see the big day on-screen? Ashlee has made appearances on the series in the past, and there's nothing that grabs ratings quite like a wedding special.
As E! Online points out, Laurita is also busy caring for her son, Nicholas, who has been diagnosed with autism. We'd love to see the family band together for a Bravo-lebration of Ashlee and Pete. Especially if Teresa Giudice is going to play nice this season, Season 7 could use a little extra fun. What do you think, Andy Cohen?
