Since Joe Giudice's release to Italy as he awaits his appeal in his ongoing deportation case, his eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, has been keeping fans up-to-date on her father's life following his release on Friday (October 11). She posted the first look at her dad on her Instagram Stories, sharing a screenshot of what he looks like these days from a FaceTime session with him.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey teen has also shared some candid looks at what his life looks like in Italy, adding in one caption on Instagram, "See you in a few weeks daddy."
That comment on when she might be seeing her dad mirrors one shared by Milania, also on Instagram: "See you soon daddy. I love you beyond words."
Giudice family attorney James J. Leonard Jr. confirmed to PEOPLE that while Joe is no longer in custody they "are still fighting and it is his desire to return home to the United States to be reunited with his family."
The video above breaks down every turn the Giudices' legal matters have taken over the years, including how Teresa has been handling the matter and raising their four daughters following her own jail time in 2015.
Teresa Giudice previously opened up about how detrimental it would be for her daughters to not have their father at home if Joe does, in fact, get deported in a video exclusive to Bravo Insider, below.
"If he gets deported, he'll never be able to go to their graduation[s], celebrate their birthdays, anything," Teresa shared. "He's going to be missing out on so much. The girls adore their father and no child should have to go through what my daughters are going through. They should have their daddy here."
