Longtime fans of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have watched Gia Giudice grow up from a young girl to a beautiful young woman — so it was pretty special to watch Gia reach a new milestone when we watched her go to her senior prom on Wednesday, February 12. Teresa Giudice's eldest took Dolores Catania's son Frankie Catania as her date, and the moms were definitely pleased to see the pair spending time together, to say the least.
While Gia was definitely missing her father, Joe Giudice, as he was still in ICE custody at the time, she knows how lucky she is to be surrounded by loved ones. In the episode, she said, "I try to make the best out of every situation, so even though my father can't be here with me today, my support system is amazing and I couldn't be more grateful for it." And a big part of her support system is her mom, Teresa, who was thrilled to be at the prom pictures to support her daughter.
In an Instagram post, Gia expressed her gratitude for her mom's presence in her life, writing, "With my beautiful mama" alongside a photo of the mother-daughter duo.
