In fact, one of Joe's most genuine tributes to Bessy and their kids came just ahead of their breakup, which had fans feeling puzzled. "These 3 humans make me the happiest guy in the world. From the quirky daughter to snuggly son to the most loving and lovable partner in the universe," Gatto wrote in the post.
