Gia Giudice speaks out amid rumors that she and boyfriend Christian Carmichael are already engaged.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, who turns 21 on Saturday, January 8, broke her silence over engagement speculation in an exclusive interview with Celebuzz published Wednesday. She provided a link to the article in a new Instagram post.
“There have been rumors circulating on the internet that my boyfriend and I are secretly engaged. I can confirm the engagement news – in particular, that we are NOT engaged, ”Teresa Giudice’s eldest daughter told the outlet.
She continued, “We’re happy together as boyfriend and girlfriend, but there’s definitely no engagement here.”
Gia and Christian have been together for a while now. They made their relationship official on Instagram in July 2020, but it was not clear when exactly the two started dating. Since then, Gia has made a habit of updating her social media accounts with cute photos featuring her boyfriend, according to Bravo’s The Daily Dish.
Rumors that they would have become engaged emerged around the same time Gia officially introduced her beau to her father when the couple visited Joe Giudice, 49, in the Bahamas in November.
Gia gave her fans a glimpse of how she spent her reunion weekend with her father in Nassau. The trio spent the night in town before heading to the beach the next day, according to the series of snaps Gia shared on her Instagram.
Joe mocked Carmichael in his social media update about the reunion weekend. In a video he shared online he told fans he was meeting “Danny [Zuko]”from the hit movie” Grease. “It was referring to the costume Christian rocked when he and Gia dressed up as Danny and Sandy for Halloween.
Joe has been dividing his time between the Bahamas and his homeland, Italy, since being deported from the United States to the latter in 2019 after serving his federal prison sentence for fraud.
Before the end of 2021, Joe’s four daughters – Gia, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 12 – traveled to the Bahamas to celebrate the New Years with him, while their mother and ex -Joe’s wife, Teresa, hosted 2022 with her fiancé Luis Ruelas, 46, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Before heading home, Joe and his daughters celebrated Gia’s birthday early this weekend. Joe posted a clip of them singing “Happy Birthday” to Gia as she blew out a candle on her strawberry cake. Christian was also present at the mini-celebration, as seen in the clip.
Gia shared a few snaps from the intimate reunion at Carmine’s Atlantis restaurant. One of them showed the father and daughter sitting next to each other while smiling for the camera.
Gia also showed off a series of photos showing her and Joe strolling around Nassau the day after the celebration. “Days in town are the best days,” she wrote in the caption with a red heart emoji.
