And the good news just keeps coming. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes announced that she and her fiancé, Pete Malleo, are expecting their first child together via a cute Instagram post on Friday, March 18.
“Had so much fun at @thelittlekernel launch party tonight!!” she captioned a sweet snapshot of the two of them on the red carpet. “@c3peteo and I are so happy to announce that we’re sprouting a little kernel of our own *coming this fall*!!!”
The reality star topped off her caption with a baby and a heart emoji.
Laurita, 45, reposted her daughter’s photo a few minutes later, confirming the happy news.
“Yes, that’s right! I’m going to be a #Glamma! @ashleenicholexx @c3peteo #SOExcited,” she captioned the shot. (Laurita is sister-in-law of Dina and Caroline Manzo.)
It’s been a whirlwind of good news for the New Jersey reality family.
Holmes, 25, excitedly shared that she and boyfriend Malleo were engaged just last month in a gorgeous photo of the pair set against the backdrop of Manhattan’s skyline.
In the photo, Holmes shows off her impressive sparkler while resting her left hand on her financé’s chest.
“I said ‘yes,’” the RHONJ guest star wrote on Instagram at the time. “Thank you for such an amazing day @c3peteo … I’m so excited for this next chapter of our lives.”
