Before Joe Giudice began his 41-month prison sentence on Wednesday, March 23, The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad took his daughters, Gia, 15, Gabriella, 12, Milania, 10, and Audriana, 6, and wife, Teresa Giudice, out for some last-minute quality time together. In this exclusive footage (above) from their trip to famed Big Apple cupcake shop Magnolia Bakery, you can see that one of their last family trips was filled with tears and hugs, as well as the signature Giudice sense of humor.

Joe will spend his sentence at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey, the same facility where Phaedra Parks' estranged husband Apollo Nida is currently serving time. In 2014, Joe pled guilty to conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges. In addition to the 41 months in prison, he could face a possible deportation back to Italy in connection with those charges following his jail sentence.
Teresa will return to RHONJ when Season 7 premieres later this year. Check out a preview of what's to come for the Garden State mom when the show returns, below.
