Slow and steady wins the race to Teresa Giudice's heart.
Last week, reports claimed that the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star was dating New Jersey-based businessman Luis "Louie" Ruelas, 46. While this is true, things aren't moving at a quick pace.
A source tells Page Six that the couple is intentionally moving slowly.
"It's new," the source said. "They are taking things very slow. They are both happy. Right now it's very low key and casual. One step at a time."
As of now, it appears that the new duo will not celebrate the holidays together as a blended family, as Teresa, a mother of four, and Louie, a father of two, are "not that far ahead yet planning wise."
Teresa and the Louie, the co-founder of Digital Media Solutions, were first linked in early November after being photographed at a football game over the weekend. The picture showed Louie with his hand on Teresa's waist. At the time, his identity was unknown.
"The relationship is very new, but both are very happy," a source said at the time.
When he was recently asked about Teresa's dating life, Joe said, "What's she going to do, stay alone forever? That's not fair, as well. Look, if I would have got out and I would have been able to go home, who knows what would happen? Maybe we'd still be in the same situation, maybe not. I don't know. Things change after so many years."
