Meet 'RHONJ' Newbie Danielle Cabral and Her Husband, Nate
Before fans had time to digest The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 12 fully, Bravo was already on the hunt for some new blood to come to the successful reality show. In May 2022, Bravo and Cocktails reported that three new cast members were coming, including two full-time housewives.
After months of rumors, Bravo confirmed in December 2022 that three housewives would be joining the show for the first time. One of them is Danielle Cabral, an actor, TV personality, and owner of the companies Boujie Kidz and Relatable Productions. Danielle plans to show the hustle and bustle of her career in between showing off her beautiful family.
Here's everything we know about Danielle’s family, including details regarding her husband.
Meet Danielle Cabral's husband, Nate Cabral.
After starring on an episode of MTV True Life, titled "I'm a Staten Island Girl," Danielle moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
While there, Danielle managed to land several roles in independent and feature films; not only did the City of Angels bring Danielle plenty of success, it introduced her to Nathan Cabral, her husband!
The couple eventually decided to leave Los Angeles to get married. The two exchanged vows on Sept. 14, 2012, at the Tuscan Garden at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, per SI Live. Since then, the Cabrals have starred in the HGTV series Family Under Construction and welcomed two adorable children: son Dominic and daughter Valentina.
Danielle introduced fans to her little family on the Season 13 premiere of RHONJ. On the show, she described her man as a “walking Adonis” in her confessional. Although Danielle adored her husband’s good looks, she admitted she wasn’t looking for a husband when she and Nate first met. However, Nate made a promise to Danielle before they made things official that she said he never broke.
“I was not looking to date anyone at the time I met my husband,” Danielle reveals in her confessional. “But, when we went to the club, I thought, ‘this is the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on.”
As Danielle continued describing her and Nate’s first date, she said her husband told her, “I’m gonna make all your dreams come true; just give me a chance.” Ten years after their wedding day, Danielle said Nate “delivered” on his vow to her, since now “all my wildest dreams are coming true.”
Danielle and her husband hinted at their ‘RHONJ’ debut after having dinner with Teresa Giudice and Louie Ruelas.
While Danielle and Nate were both previously on reality TV, their new RHONJ opportunity was so big that Danielle couldn’t give any details until weeks before the Season premiere. However, that didn’t stop the new Bravolebrity from amplifying the casting rumors with the help of her good friend Teresa Giudice.
On May 2, 2022, Danielle shared a snap of her and Nate's double date with Teresa and her husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas. Throughout the summer of 2022, she added more photos of her, Teresa, and Jennifer Aydin. When the time came to announce the big news, she received support from Jennifer in her comments.
“Finally!!” Jennifer exclaimed to Danielle.
While Teresa didn’t comment on Danielle’s confirmation post, the RHONJ star is happy to have another friend in her corner for Season 13. In the premiere, the OG said Danielle “reminds me of me,” which makes us think we’ll see more of RHONJ’s dynamic duo a lot in Season 13.
