Teresa's husband, whom he married in 1999, began his 41-month prison sentence in March 2016, after turning himself over to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix for fraud. Giudice's main concern was to maintain the stability of her four daughters: Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13 and Audriana, 9.
"I think of that as there are people in the army who are not there for everything," he told PEOPLE in 2016. "Of course, he would be there if he could … as long as we have our health, that's all that matters. When you have your health, you have everything. "
But it has not been easy: while discussing her husband's prison sentence in an ABC News interview in July 2016, she broke the tears and walked away from the cameras. "I'm getting emotional," he said. "No, I think our future is not uncertain," added Giudice, after gaining composure. "He's going to be home, we're going to be together, and that's what I'm looking forward to."
