He’s no monster dad!

Despite his late-night dates with young women and boozy Jersey Shore parties, Joe Giudice is a good father, his sister-in-law insists to

“He’s usually at home with the girls,” says Sheila Giudice, the wife of Joe’s brother Pete.

Joe, who is the primary caretaker to daughters Gia, 14, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5, while wife Teresa finishes up her prison sentence for fraud charges, is concentrating on getting his girls ready for a new school year.

“Joe’s just taking it day by day,” Sheila insists. “He’s looking forward to Teresa coming home so they’ll have some time together.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, 43, will be released in December after nearly a year behind bars, but the family will only be complete for a fleeting moment. Joe will begin his 41-month sentence soon after his wife arrives home.

As for the looming prison stint, Sheila says the father of four, 43, isn’t wasting time focusing on bleak future.

“He really hasn’t talked about it,” she claims. “He’s just excited to see Teresa.”

As previously reported, Joe got into a nasty fight last month with his Jersey Shore neighbors after partying all night long.

“Gia was hysterical and had to be calmed down by Joe,” a source told

Just the week prior, the reality dad was spotted drinking with a mystery woman at a Long Beach Island bar.
