After growing up in front of The Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras, fans were able to see the beginnings of Melissa Gorga's daughter Antonia Gorga's college journey on Season 14 as she prepared to set off for her freshman year. Now, she's officially wrapped her first year at the University of Delaware.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

Antonia's dad Joe Gorga and her younger brother Gino Gorga drove down to Delaware on May 19 to help Antonia bring all of her belongings back to New Jersey. "Little road trip to Delaware," Joe shared in a video he posted to his Instagram Stories, which showcased him sitting in the car with Gino. "Going to pick up Antonia from college. I got Gino driving..."

Joe then reflected on how quickly Antonia's first year away went for him. "I'm on my way to Delaware to pick up my daughter. I can't believe it. One year down," he said from the passenger seat. "Man, oh man, how fast it went. But, you know what? I'm happy because she's coming home."

"Antonia on our way," Joe wrote in the caption of the Story.

Antonia first revealed that she was going to be a Blue Hen on Instagram in May of 2023. She posted three photos of her posing on her bed — which was decked out in blue and yellow swag from the school and snacks — underneath a balloon sign that read, "UDel."

“I don’t know if I’m happy, or I want to cry," Joe reacted in the comments section of the post.

Melissa added, “My baby girl[.] I’m so proud of you!! love [you].”

After her freshman year kicked off in the fall of 2023, Antonia later joined the Alpha Phi sorority. She's since shared snapshots of her friends, sorority sisters, and other milestone occasions on her Instagram feed — such as her spring formal look just earlier this month
