Teresa Giudice will be home for the holidays – and husband Joe Guidice is ready.

In a new interview with E!, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star said he’s already preparing a special Christmas for the whole family.

“Just being out is going to be a relief in itself and it’s a couple of days right before Christmas,” Joe said.

Teresa is currently scheduled for an early release date Dec. 23 from the Danbury, Connecticut, prison she checked into Jan. 5.

“We got the holidays. We’re probably going to take a trip or two with the family,” he said. “I’d stay in the States … [maybe] some island close by.”

Joe said his wife, who was jailed on a 15-month prison sentence for fraud, will likely want to “keep it small” and have a “family dinner” for Christmas.”=

The 43-year-old, who said he’s going to welcome Teresa back by first telling her, “it’s good to have you home,” admitted it may be hard when she first arrives.

He’s also looking forward to having his wife back in their bed.

“Now I don’t have to worry about the kids sleeping in my bedroom anymore or mommy sleeping with them,” he said. “That’s all over. It’s done with.”
