Nearly two years after deciding to call it quits, Joe Gatto and his estranged wife, Bessy Gatto, have revealed their reconciliation.
The former “Impractical Jokers” shocked his Instagram followers by posting a smiling photo on the beach with his partner on Saturday.
“Ten years ago when we started, I could never have imagined the crazy adventure with ups and downs that our marriage has endured,” the 47-year-old comedian began. “But there has always been love. And knowing that there is no one else, I would like to be my person.
After praising the 41-year-old’s “compa*sion”, “resilience” and “laugh”, he thanked her for their decade together.
“I am happy and hope that we can recruit a few more because we have proven with compa*sion, forgiveness and an open heart that we can do it. Together,” he continued. “I can’t wait to see even more including laughing together, making memories with our amazing family and of course…the dogs.”
He concluded the upload on social media by calling his wife “Mrs”. Catto.
Joe’s rep did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Five days before her post, Bessy shared a throwback photo with Joe and wrote an equally touching tribute.
“Just days away from 10 years of marriage, I think of all the changes we’ve been through, good and bad,” she wrote on Monday. “In the end, I wouldn’t change anything. Everything that happens and everything that we go through brings us closer to where we are meant to be. And I sincerely believe that’s exactly where I’m meant to be in my life.
Bessy said she had “never been happier, happier and more hopeful for the future than now”, adding that she loves Joe more than on their wedding day in September 2013.

“The laughter, the tears, the ups and downs, the sacrifices and the forgiveness that we endured, all of those things got us to where we are today,” she continued. “I look forward to more adventures.”
In January 2022, the duo announced their split, with Joe simultaneously revealing his departure from “Impractical Jokers.”
“Alongside my friends, I have dedicated a decade of my life to building this franchise and I couldn’t be prouder of what has been accomplished,” he wrote in a statement at the time. “However, due to some issues in my personal life, I have to step down.”
The couple stuck together while co-parenting their two children and even attended an Imagine Dragons concert together the following month.
As Twitter users celebrated Bessy and Joe’s rekindled romance over the weekend, many expressed hope that the actor would return to his truTV show with James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn and Sal Vulcano.
“First of all, congratulations” a fan wrote. “Secondly. Does that mean you’re going back to “Impractical Jokers”? It’s not the same without you.”
Others focused on the couple’s return, with one gushing: “I just cried like a baby. These two deserve nothing but love.
