Jennifer Aydin Reveals She Was 9 Months Pregnant When She Discovered Bill’s Affair on ‘RHONJ’

Celebrity news
Jennifer Aydin was nine months pregnant when she discovered that husband Bill Aydin was having an affair.
“This is nothing that I haven’t spoken about with him,” Jennifer begins in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek of the Tuesday, February 8 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, talking to Dolores Catania and Teresa Giudice.
“This happened ten years ago. I’m over it.”
Jennifer, 44, confirmed that her husband had previously been unfaithful after being confronted by Margaret Josephs in the final minutes of the season 12 premiere of RHONJ.
“I was pregnant, we had just moved to Jersey … he was not around. He was working a lot. And he was really feeling himself. You know, he was making a lot of money,” she recalls, adding that she was tipped off by seeing a credit card receipt with suspicious charges on it.
“Then I saw a text message in his phone, and I confronted him with it. He admitted it.”
“I’m nine months pregnant, a stay-at-home mom, no income of my own,” she says.

“Once the baby came and we were having our moments [with him], I was like, ‘I want to make it work if he wants to make it work,'” she explains, adding to her fellow Housewives that they “never f–king spoke about” the affair after that.
The reality star met Bill in 2001 and they tied the knot one year later.
“I thought nobody would ever find out. … I never told anybody,” she explained.
“Nobody knew — [not] my mother, my sister, my best friend, my cousin. Like, when I say I was taking it to the grave, I kept that secret inside.”
“Because I wasn’t nasty towards him and we were playing the role of this happy family life — and of course, he was so remorseful and, you know, always petting me, trying to kiss [and] care [for] me — after a while I was just like, ‘You know what? Let’s just pretend this never happened.’ And that’s what I did,” Jennifer said at the time.
“I’m glad I stayed … and forgave,” the Bravo star wrote on Instagram on Thursday, February 3, alongside a throwback photo of her whole family.
