RHONJ - Joe Giudice's Daughter Gia And Estranged Wife Teresa Share Emotional Messages On Father's Day
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice couldn’t be with his four daughters on Father’s Day because he was deported to his native Italy last October, but his family still showed him plenty of love on the holiday via social media.
Joe shares daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Teresa. Gia took to Instagram to show her love and gratitude for her dad, her late grandpa Giacinto “Nonno” Gorga, and her uncle Joe Gorga.
Gia posted numerous family photos, and in the caption she wrote: “Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing people in my life and souls who keep me going every single day! Dad thank you for showing me how to show strength, Nonno thank you for always pushing me to be my best self, and Zio Joe thank you for being there when I always need you.“
Giacinto Gorga passed away in April, and Gia concluded her post by writing that she speaks to him everyday and thanks him for everything he taught her. The college student said that her Nonno was one in a million, and she misses him dearly.
“Thank you all so much for making me the person I am today. I love you,” wrote Gia.
Even though Joe and Teresa are going through a divorce after 20 years of marriage, she still commemorated Father’s Day by posting a pic of Joe with their daughters. In the caption she wrote that the girls miss him today and everyday.
Teresa also posted a special video for her dad, and wrote in the caption that she couldn't believe it was her first Father's Day without him. The RHONJ star wrote that she misses her dad every day. She misses hearing his voice in the kitchen, their Costco runs, and the laughs they shared.
"I find peace knowing you & mommy are walking barefoot on a beach together, she’s making you something delicious to eat today and you’re relaxing with a glass of Johnnie Walker Blue, you’re breathing easy & for that I’m so happy. I love you Papa, the girls and I miss you so much & I’ll always be Daddy’s girl. Happy Fathers Day in Heaven. Till I see you again papa," wrote Teresa.
Joe moved to Italy in October after spending three years in federal prison and seven months in an ICE detention center. An immigration judge ordered Joe’s deportation after he was convicted for bankruptcy fraud.
Even though he couldn’t be with his daughters, Joe still had his girls on his mind on Sunday. He posted a video filled with old family photos, and in the caption he wrote that he wished was in New Jersey so he could give his girls a “real big hug.”
Joe Giudice added that no matter how far away they are from each other, his daughters will always be his babies.
