Fans of the hit TV series may find it difficult to imagine anyone demanding anything of Teresa but apparently at home, it is husband Joe who calls all the shots and she accedes to his wishes. Now he wants a son and Teresa is considering using a surrogate to give it to him.
Initially reluctant to add to their family of four girls, she is apparently now considering it, to satisfy her husband. Apart from the size of her existing family, Teresa is thought to be worried about putting her body through another pregnancy. Also, she had to undergo a gruelling period of IVF treatment in 2009 to have her youngest daughter Audriana in 2009. Apparently the couple were initially hopeful she would be a boy.
But apparently Joe has the answer: they should get a surrogate.
“Joe really wants a boy,” Teresa told “In Touch” magazine. “And he said we should get a surrogate to carry it.”
Adding to her pressure to produce a son and heir is the fact that Teresa’s bitter rival, sister-in-law Melissa Gorga has a son, Gino, aged 5, with Joe’s brother.
Last year, Teresa vowed she was “done” having any more kids after Gia (12), Gabriella (8), Milania (7) and Audriana (30. But it seems Joe’s longing for a son has not gone away.
But Teresa will apparently do anything to make husband Joe happy. She even plans to name any future son Franco, after her father-in-law.
