Teresa and Joe Giudice are celebrating their eldest child. On Friday, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” personalities — who split in December 2019— posted touching Instagram tributes in honor of daughter Gia’s 20th birthday.
“Happy 20th Birthday @_giagiudice I love you to infinity & beyond can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight,” Teresa, 48, captioned alongside a throwback snap.
In a separate post, Teresa called Gia “strong” and “fierce,” adding, “you make everything wrong in the world right.”
“I love you more than you’ll ever know & I admire your strength and beauty. I love you baby girl and I hope this is the best birthday yet!! Thank you for always being such a wonderful role model for your sisters I’m so proud of you!!” Teresa continued.
Teresa shares Gia and daughters Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11, with Joe, 48. The Giudices finalized their divorce in September.
Joe, who has been living in his native Italy following a messy deportation battle, also shared a video message Friday dedicated to his first-born.
“Happy birthday to my beautiful princess, GIA! From my little girl who used to play with dolls, you have grown up to become a strong and independent woman, that I am proud of. Your accomplishments make me smile and pride [sic] of you,” Joe gushed.
“I love you baby girl, more than words could ever describe. Thank you for being you and for being so special. I want you to always know you are the best big sister, daughter, and friend to many. I thank you everyday for being an understanding and supporting daughter. You are not just my daughter, but my best friend too,” he continued.
In November, Gia and younger sister Milania visited Joe in Italy and documented their travels on social media.
Over the weekend, Teresa also treated Gia to a sweet celebration that included a purple and white birthday cake.
“Happy Birthday Beautiful @_giagiudice hope you enjoyed your birthday love you endlessly #20thbirthday,” Teresa gushed
