Ever since Joe and Teresa Giudice surprised their four daughters with a fluffy white puppy this past Christmas, we've been wondering what the family would name the newest addition. Well, we finally have an answer, people!
Gia Giudice took to Twitter to officially welcome the pooch to TheReal Housewives of New Jersey clan and she revealed the doggie's adorable name. The girls decided on a good, old-fashioned Italian name: Bella!
"Merry Christmas! Bella welcome to the family!" Gia wrote on the site, along with a picture of her holding the tiny cutie.
True, the name Bella is a little trendy right now thanks to the popularity of the Twilight vampire trilogy, but it's a classic! Plus, it's a perfect choice for the little looker since "bella" means "beautiful" in Italian.
Joe and Teresa decided to give their daughters the pup this Christmas, making it a very special holiday for the girls. What kid doesn't want to wake up to a little tail-wagging furball squirming under the tree?
Considering the legal battle that the Giudice's are currently going through, we're not surprised to see them bringing an extra dose of happiness into their home with a sweet puppy. Joe and Teresa were charged with 41 counts of financial fraud and could end up facing up to 50 years in jail as a result.
We hope that jail is the worst-case scenario. We'd hate to see Joe and Teresa in prison, especially for the sake of Gia, Gabriella, Milania, Audriana, and now Bella, too!
