Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes Malleo is sharing an update on her personal life. The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter has been spending some quality time with her family while navigating some ups and downs in recent weeks, as she opened up about on Instagram.
On May 3, Ashlee took to Instagram to express her gratitude for her loved ones, revealing that she and son Cameron recently returned to New Jersey spending a couple of weeks visiting her dad and half-brothers in Texas.
Ashlee shared several family photos from the trip featuring her son and extended family members. “I’ve been back in NJ for a week now. I’ve been sort of silent on social media. A lot going on in my personal life,” she explained in the caption of the pictures. “Doing my best to navigate everything while trying to protect my mental health. I’ll be back on here soon.”
Ashlee went on to conclude, “Until then, here are some more pictures from my time in Texas. Love and miss my family so much. (In Texas and in the other states.) I’ll re-share a bunch in my stories and make a little Texas highlight since I don’t get to visit as often as I’d like anymore. (Love and miss you all!)
In April, Ashlee offered a glimpse into her trip to Texas, sharing several videos and photos from their visit. “𝚃𝙴𝚇𝙰𝚂 𝚆𝙴𝙴𝙺 𝟷,” she captioned one post. “It’s been so nice seeing my family again for the first time in SO LONG. Although I haven’t fully been myself lately, being in their presence during this time has been MUCH needed for my soul. Grateful to have been able to make this trip with Cam. I especially love watching my little brothers be uncles.”
Speaking of her brothers, the proud mom enjoyed plenty of time with her younger siblings, as she captured in several Instagram photos. “I’m so proud of not just my brother @gavinholmes_ , but all of my brothers. All athletes. All good students. Amazing Uncles to Cam,” she captioned one picture.
In a post on April 25, Ashlee reflected on how spending time with her family helped her recharge. “If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m VERY open about my mental health. It hasn’t been that great lately,” she wrote, going on to explain, “Depression and anxiety are very real. ADHD. Throw in all my hormonal issues lately. —the works lol There are moments where it can all feel very emotionally draining and just… all consuming… overwhelming. IYKYK. Having my family around me during this time has been SO important to me. I feel like timing is everything. I was meant to be here during this time and recharge myself.”
In addition sharing her gratitude for her dad and brothers, Ashlee recently posted a sweet shout-out to her mom on her birthday. “Taking a quick break from all the Texas content to wish my Mom @jaclaurita a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! A true Taurus. Love ya Mama!” she wrote.
