He’s glowing up behind bars! In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice revealed that her husband, Joe Giudice — who is currently serving a four-year prison sentence at Fort Dix Federal Prison — has undergone quite the body transformation since being locked up in March 2016.

“He looks really, really good! He’s lost maybe 40 pounds. Really cut up, really chiseled. He’s not puffy anymore. He’s thin!” the mother-of-four shared during a signing for her new book, Standing Strong, at 30 Rock last week. Not going to lie, we are totally dying to see him post-weight loss transformation. We’re sure it will be worth the wait, though!

One reason we’re not surprised Joe is working hard on himself while he’s away is because, as Teresa revealed in her book, he’s been sending her jealous letters. The Bravolebrity further elaborated on this to Life & Style, explaining, “I think that’s going to still keep happening until he comes home. It’s only normal — like, ‘What are you doing?’ But you know, he’s fine with it.”

While Teresa — who also served a 15-month prison sentence and was released in December 2015 — has been accused of cheating in the past, she assured fans that Joe “doesn’t have anything to worry about.” She was even forced to confront these rumors in front of her RHONJ co-stars, “because somebody was saying that was true and it was like, ‘Why are you saying things that are not true?’” It’s clear she is waiting for her man and his new body to return home to their family!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
