Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is reportedly ecstatic that her husband, Joe Giudice, is "finally free" from ICE custody.

Joe is currently waiting on a judge to decide whether or not he is to be permanently deported back to Italy after he served a 41-month prison sentence on mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud charges. As part of his appeal, Joe agreed to return to Italy to wait out the decision.

"Teresa is relieved Joe is finally free, and they know what's happening," a source close to the Giudice family told HollywoodLife. 

"She and the family know the chances of him returning to the states is very slim, but Teresa knows the girls can now go visit him anywhere in the world except here. The girls were all together celebrating with their mom when Joe was officially freed and really can't wait to see their dad. The biggest relief for Teresa is the girls are feeling the relief. It's a huge stress and weight off of the entire family's shoulders to have him out of there."
