Gia Giudice is sharing her gratitude for dad Joe Giudice. In honor of Father’s Day, The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter took to Instagram to share a touching tribute to Joe and two of the other important fathers in her life: her uncle, Joe Gorga, and her late grandfather, Giacinto “Nonno” Gorga.

How to Watch

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

In celebration of the holiday, Gia shared several sweet family photos, writing, “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.

Gia concluded her emotional message by remembering her Nonno, who passed away earlier this year after battling health issues. “Nonno today and everyday I speak to you and thank you for everything you taught me, you are one and a million, and I miss you so much everyday,” she wrote. “Thank you all so much for making me the person I am today. I love you.”

Milania also posted a message for her dad, aka "my best friend." She wrote, "Thank you for letting me know I have someone that understands me. I would be lost without you. I love you to infinity and beyond."

Gia isn’t the only one to share a Father’s Day tribute to Joe, who remains in Italy after the denial of his recent deportation appeal. Teresa Giudice also commemorated the occasion, sharing a photo of Joe with their four shared daughters.

“Happy Fathers Day @joe.giudice,” she wrote in the caption. “The girls miss you today & everyday!”
