It's a happy time for this Real Housewives of New Jersey star. On Tuesday, Jacqueline Laurita became a grandma after her daughter, Ashlee Holmes, gave birth to her first child. Before the arrival of her grandson, sweetly named Cameron Hendrix Malleo, Laurita took to Instagram Monday to announce Holmes' water broke, so they were just waiting until her first grandchild arrived. He made his entrance on Tuesday at 5:20 p.m. and weighed in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces, and measured 20 inches long. Holmes also took to Twitter to announce the birth of her son and wrote, "Cameron Hendrix Malleo. We are so in love with you." She added, "23 hours of labor followed by 1 hour and a half of pushing... but it was worth it. My lil man is finally here."
As you'll notice below, Holmes and her fiancé, Peter Malleo, made one cute baby. He is absolutely precious. It's apparent Laurita agrees, because she can't stop sharing photos on social media. In one Instagram, where the Housewife is holding her grandbaby, she wrote, "I'm so in love!" I mean, who wouldn't be with that sweet face? It also looks like Laurita's family and fellow RHONJ co-stars are thrilled for her.
Her sister-in-law and former Real Housewives star Caroline Manzo wrote on Instagram, "Congratulations @ashleenicholexx & @c3peteo as you begin the most wonderful adventure of your lives! Welcome Cameron Hendrix Malleo!" Laurita's RHONJ Season 7 co-star Dolores Catania also posted on Instagram, "CONGRATULATIONS! We welcome our little RHONJ angel can't wait to hold you."
As nice as all of the congratulatory messages are for Holmes and Malleo on their new addition, no one is as excited as Laurita. Just check out these photos.

I think it's safe to say that Laurita is one proud grandma.
