They also spent the holidays together. They were side by side as they stood by a tall Christmas tree in the foyer of her New Jersey mansion which she once shared with ex-husband Joe.
The beauty had on a low-cut black dress with her raven hair down as she was glammed to the nines. Her new man was dapper in a dark suit as he put an arm around his lady love and held her hand. In her caption she said, ‘It’s official.’
She also said Luis was ‘the BEST thing that came out of 2020.’

In early November, the reality TV personality posted an image to her Facebook account to let her followers know that she was moving on and had met someone new; the caption for the post read: ‘Excited to reveal my new boyfriend.’
It was made known that month that Giudice had begun a relationship with Ruelas.
Teresa was previously married to Giuseppe ‘Joe’ Giudice from 1999 until this year.
The former couple were heavily featured on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey and share four daughters.
In 2009, Joe and Teresa couple filed for bankruptcy, which set off a chain of legal battles culminating in the two being convicted for various forms of fraud.

Five years later, the two were handed prison sentences; Joe’s status as an illegal immigrant was also brought into question, as he had never gained citizenship despite living in the United States since he was a year old.
At the end of his time being incarcerated, Joe went to live with his family in Italy to await the results of his deportation hearing and subsequent appeals.
The Giudices separated in December of 2019, months after Joe was released, and finalized their divorce in September.
The media personality’s former husband is reportedly both aware and supportive of her new relationship.
Also this summer Teresa said she is set to launch her own yoga clothing line.
The star – who first started doing yoga in 2016, before training as an instructor and transitioning into a bodybuilding competitor – has partnered with Electric Yoga on The Love Collection.
She told Page Six Style: ‘I’m all about comfort. My workout line is really comfortable, really soft. You want to feel good in it because I feel like when you look good, you feel good.’
The star’s upcoming spring/summer 2021 collection was inspired by her desire to create the ‘perfect’ sports bra, after years of struggling to find the right fit.
She said: ‘You know how all the sports bras are really short underneath your boobs? I went a little longer with mine because sometimes if you want to stay in your workout outfit all day — if you’re running around — you can’t run around with a sports bra.

‘I always was looking for that perfect sports bra top — like I didn’t want the short one, I didn’t want the real long one, I wanted the perfect length.’
Teresa got her daughters, Gia, 20, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11 – whom she has with ex-husband Joe Giudice – to give her their honest opinion of the pieces before they went into production.
She added: ‘I flew out to California and I met with the owner and the designers and I sat with them and created the whole line. They sent me the deck sheet after I went to go design it, and [my daughters] weighed on it, like they told me what they liked, what they didn’t like and I made changes based on what they told me. They’re going to be wearing it, so I wanted to hear what they had to say.’
