Audriana Giudice just turned 11 years old! Joe Giudice wished The Real Housewives of New Jersey family’s youngest daughter a happy birthday from Italy with a heart-warming Instagram tribute, which included some adorable footage from the day she was born, as well as a collection of photos from throughout her childhood.
“You will be my little girl forever. Today I teared up, remembering how much joy you brought to us. Do you remember all those hair things mom put in your baby curls to get you ready for school? Those things were all over the house,” Joe recalled. “They day you were born it was a bright day, like a light I needed that moment. Mom told everyone I wanted a boy. Not true, I’m a girl dad.”
Joe went on to explain how much Audriana and her sisters, Gia, Gabriella, and Milania, mean to him.
“You came at the right time when our family needed you the most and for that I will always be grateful. I have to say YOU all don’t know this but I am challenged by you girls to always be better. You all encourage me to fight harder. Your life has given me breath in so many ways. You teach me the importance of love and I am thankful for that gift. Thank you for always being patient with me. Thank you for always loving me so unconditionally. Thank you for all your kisses and hugs still remember and miss them. Thank you for exceeding every expectation in school, dance, and just being you.”
“Happy birthday @audrianag_ my love have a great day, he continued. “Miss you. Baby girl, I vow to show you I will always be here and love you happy 11th birthday Audriana. [Love] Daddy.”
Mom Teresa Giudice also shared a heartfelt message for Audriana alongside a collection of some of her sweetest moments.
“Happy birthday Audriana!! I love being your mom. You are such a thoughtful, strong, dedicated daughter and I’m so proud of you everyday!” she wrote. “You are so kind to everyone and have such love for animals and people alike. Thanks for being my baby! I love you to the moon and back my sweet baby girl!”
Teresa also beautifully decorated their home with a pink and silver balloon installation for Audriana, who received a lavish pink birthday cake.
