Audriana Giudice was born September 14, 2009, at 5:56 p.m. She weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and was 20-1/2 inches long. She doesn’t have a middle name. None of my daughters do. Neither do Joe or I. I made up the name Audriana (I’m sure I’ll hear from a bunch of Audrianas now! Hi! Love love love your name!) I never heard anyone with the name and I liked Adriana, but I wanted it to have the Italian sounding "u" in it, so I just added a "u." I like pretty and unusual girls names that end in an "a" of course! Audriana is the light of our lives. She just brought so much extra love into our family. The girls just love on her all day long. And she’s such a happy baby!
How sweet was baby Nicholas bringing her a rose (and lots of presents from Auntie Jacqueline)? I would love it if they got married some day.
I asked Dina to be the godmother, and I even cried watching that scene again. In the part of Italy where our family is from – Sala Consilina in Salerno – you pick a godmother who you would want your daughter to grow up and be like. So if you pick someone cheap, they say your child will be cheap. Dina decorates so well, maybe Audriana will pick that up from her! Just kidding. Seriously, Dina is a beautiful person inside and out. She’s so classy and beautiful, she’s a great mom, she’s got a great heart, she’s religious and cares so much for children. I would be honored if Audriana was like her in any way. You’ll get to see the christening in an upcoming episode.
Thank you so much for all your sweet wishes and
congratulations! To answer some of your questions, no, none of the other Manzos or Lauritas are godparents to my other girls. We used family members. If you don’t have kids yourself and I freaked you out with my screaming, I’m so sorry, but I promise, it’s so worth it! And you can find the hat with the flower that Audriana was wearing on my website at: www.teresagiudice.com. Click on "Shop with Me." Also lots of the jewelry and t-shirts I wear, and the headbands and bows my girls wear.
i can only say you are a hell of a women and a mom. i hope joe got you that diamond lol. i have 4 kids of my own and yes it wasn't easy it was the worst but its all worth it. god bless her she is a doll. you look great the whole time to. i love the fact this blog was all about your birth therers a time and place for everything. and like you say love love you
Hey Teresa! I always liked your sassiness but when I watched this episode and you said to the camera that you said "Thank you God for giving me a healthy, beautiful baby" I was really impressed. You are sincerely humble and I admire that most. I love your family dynamic. Please consider having ONE more baby ok? just kidding.
I have your book as well, haven't made anything yet, but i so enjoy reading it.
Thanks for sharing the baby's birth with us. I know I feel blessed by the love she brought to your world.
your girls are just beautiful. i just last week gave birth to my second child (a boy) first one was a girl i love my babies and as a motheer i think you are just great!!!!! the godmother part of the episode with Dina was so touching, it made me tear up it was a beautiful moment to share with your family. Thank You for opening your life (all of your lives) accept Danielle i could really care less about but you all are such AWESOME GREAT PEOPLE.
Congrats on another beautiful baby girl!!! As they grow into beautiful young women I think Joe may have to go visit Chris and his safe to keep away the boys!!
You are starting to sound like Jill Zarin.....All you girls just peddle your junk. Did you pre-plan the hat scene with your new daughter? I bet you did! All of it is pre-planned with the housewives that have ulterior motives! Whatever they are selling is the focal point for them...all the way down to using a baby to do so.
Hi Teres, congrats on your angel. I love you beyond words you are fabulous!!! You should have your own show. Stay positive and stay far away from jail bird!!!!
You have such a wonderful family and now with the new member makes it just perfect , May God Bless you always!
Congrats on the birth of your daughter!!! I have to say I can't believe Bravo showed you getting that needle in your back...I almost passed out...I actually did have to walk out of the room. I know how they do an epidural...but never actually watched. Glad it all went well and best of luck!!!
CONGRATULATIONS to your family! What a beautiful baby! On another note, EVERY time I see you cooking or eating it makes me hungry for italian food! I must get your book! Much love, tam. e.
Theresa, congrats on that little cutie. Those hats are hysterical, as a mommy of a boy I get a kick out of that.
The cook book is fabulous (like you), I'm getting another copy for my sister, she's getting married and I'm going to wrap it up in a gift basket with some ingredients, kitchen stuff, etc. Thanks again for another great episode!
How wonderful to have a new baby and the other children accept her immediately!
How proud and excited you must be for making the best seller list!
And I cannot believe you actually made french toast while you were in labor!
Oh my goodness Audriana is gorgeous, bless her! When she sneezed and looked at you my heart melted! Congratulations, all of your daughters are going to be absolutely stunning women! You must be a proud mommy!!
Congratulations on your new baby girl! One of the main reasons why I watch your show is to see you and your daughters. I get the biggest kick out of watching you and the girls interact and always end up laughing so hard. You are a great mom! Keep up the good work!
Congratulations on your beautiful family. You and Joe are very attentive to not only the children, but to each other as well. It is so refreshing to see families like yours and Jaquelines. WTG on your blog this week. It was all about Audriana and not the Danielle DRAMA!!!
Louisiana loves, loves, loves Teresa and family!!!
Teresa, I love you. The episode was wonderful and what a beautiful addition to your wonderful family. Mazol Tov

I loved seeing how calmly and thoughtfully you handled the whole birthing episode. I am a L&D nurse, mother of 5 and grandma of 7 - you are one lovely, and beautiful lady. The baby is sooooo beautiful, I just wanted to tell Dina it was my turn to hold her. You were right - you & Joe make some outstanding girls. Love the book, my husband is half Italian, but diabetic so it helps alot, the man loves his food.....Only the best proud mama.
i just loved this episode you had a beatiful baby. All of your kids are beautiful God be with you all.
LOVE LOVE LOVE You and your family! You crack me up with all of your girly foofoo stuff!, and your sassy atittude! keep up the good work!
CONGRATS 2 U AND JOE ON UR PRECIOUS GIFT SHE IS BEAUTIFUL, U R MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE BECAUSE U SEEM REAL AND U DO IT ALL COOK,CLEAN,TEND 2 THE GIRLS,AND JOE:).U GO GIRL!!!
You are my favorite!! I LOVE how cute you look right before and right after giving birth... love it! Joe is such a funny guy... DIAMONDS!!! Good answer Joe!! He appears to be such a wonderful husband and father... So happy for you and your family!!
Teresa- How come your house is for sale ? Are you moving to Franklin Lakes ? Thought that was your dream house.
I shed a few tears at the birth of Audriana as well. Congrats to you and Joe. She is so very beautiful, but then so is her mommy.
Teresa -- congratulations on the birth of Audriana! She definitely will have a birth day to remember! She looks like Gia .. is that what Gia looked like as a baby? Anyway ... health and happiness to you and your whole family...
Teresa, you are a pleasure to watch. I think you are one of those rare gems - a truly happy person that spreads warmth and love to everyone she meets. You are a great mom and I love watching your excitement about events in your life. I wish I was Italian - it seems like all of you have great family values and enjoy time spent together.
I loved the scene where you asked Dina if she wanted to be Audriana's godmother. It was so touching--you could see how much it meant to her! It looks like Dina has been through so much stress over the last year and this must have done her heart a world of good. What a joy and what healing a new little one can bring...all of the drama and unimportant things seem to fall by the wayside. God bless your baby...much happiness to you as a new mommy. Enjoy every second of "little baby time"...as a mom of four I know that you know as well that there is truly nothing like it...XOXO
Dear Teresa, Being a Mom of three, I totally get how painful it is, your epidural didn't work at all from what I heard!! Back when I had my kids...there was no epidural or anything else!! Just plain old natural child birth, so I do know what you were going through!! They used to say that "natural child birth was beautiful!" Nothing beautiful about it!! Although, afterward there's no numbness to get through, and you feel great!! You looked absolutely beautiful while you were in labor!! Of course I cried right along with Dina when you asked her to be Audriana's God Mother!! Congrats!

Teresa: Congratulations on baby Audriana!! I can't believe this is 8 months later, she must be gorgeous because she was so beautiful when she was born. You are a brave woman letting the cameras in, but you looked amazing the whole time. God Bless you and your beautiful family. DA

My family is from outside of Palermo, and the one thing I can tell you about taking on as a Godparent is also in case of death to a parent. It's a big responsibility. God Bless you and your family Audriana is beautiful and so are all of your girls. Loved watching it last night :)
Teresa, my birthday is a day before your baby girl! Virgos are awesome! You gave birth in typical Teresa style! You rocked it girl! As for asking Dina to be Godmother, I couldn't imagine a better Godmother to your baby. Dina is an amazing woman.
Look forward to seeing more of you in future episodes!
Congratulations on baby girl #4. I have 3 beautiful daughters of my own and my husband was watching last night's episode with me. He completely agreed with your comment about Joe loving his girls! My husband has 3 girls (he too is only able to make girls! lol) he wouldn't trade them for the world. Watching you in labor brought back so many memeories, thank you for allowing the cameras into something so private.
Your blogs are all about you...the other ladies talk about the entire show. It's like you only watch the scenes you're in.
Teresa Congratulations on your new baby girl!! She is beautiful! I love watching the show and espically you on it. I had sugery last night and was all doped up and still tryed to stay awake and watch it because I knew they would be showing you have your daugther!! I love how you wanted to wear your own outfit I did the same thing they told me I couldnt but as soon as they left the room I put my pretty gown on haha!! Then by that time they couldnt say anything cuz I was in so much pain! Love your daughters there so pretty my daughter loves watching them and shes only 3!! Goodluck with your beautiful daughters!!
