In a video shared by the former couple’s 15-year-old daughter Milania, Teresa and Luis sit at the end of the table, while Joe is seated a few chairs down, with their kids in between.
Milania’s post, which she shared to her Instagram Story, was picked up and reposted by a number of different fans, who were excited to see Teresa’s new man being welcomed by the family.
