Joe Giudice may be in prison serving a 41-month term after pleading guilty to multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud, but that doesn't stop him from being a doting husband. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star sent his wife, Teresa Giudice, two beautiful flower arrangements to celebrate their 17th anniversary on Sunday.
"What a surprise got these beautiful roses from Joe for our Anniversary today October 23, 1999," Teresa captioned a photo of a huge bouquet of red roses via Instagram. "I spent 17 years married with man that I know my whole life pretty amazing adore and love him."
Joe didn't stop there. A few hours later, another bouquet arrived for Teresa. The brightly colored arrangement was filled with orchids, roses and other assorted flowers and included a card reading, "Happy anniversary. Love you with all my heart. Joe."
"I also just got more flowers for our 17 Year Wedding Anniversary!!! Love my honey #grateful #love #soulmate," the 44-year-old reality star wrote on Instagram.
A source close to the couple says they're not sure if Joe sent the flowers from jail himself or if he had someone do it for him. Regardless, he is said to be doing well in prison. "As you know, he had a rough start adjusting to being away from his family in the beginning, but he's in a really good place right now," the source told ET.
"He calls home multiple times per day to talk to Teresa and the girls, just like she did when she was away," they added. "He misses the girls so much and cannot wait to get home, but Joe will get through this, just like Teresa did. They have to."
Teresa served an 11-month sentence for her part in the crime last year. The court allowed the couple to serve their sentences at different times so that one parent could stay home to look after their four daughters.
