Joe Giudice Is Missing His Daughters: "I Didn't Get to Spend Summer with My Babies"

The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad has a touching message for his kids.

By Laura Rosenfeld

As summer winds down, Joe Giudice can't believe where the time has gone — especially how much time has passed since he last got to see his daughters, Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10.

How to Watch

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

Joe reflected on the end of the summer season and the beginning of fall while marking the start of September in a post on Instagram published on September 1. "My [No. 1] tribe," Joe wrote in the post, which featured a collage of photos of him and his daughters. "#Fact I can’t believe September [is] here and I didn’t get to spend summer with my babies."

Joe has been living away from his family in Italy since he was released from ICE custody in the United States in October 2019. His latest appeal in his deportation case was denied in April 2020.

Teresa Giudice and her daughters were able to see Joe in person in Italy, as we saw in Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey (clip above). The family was later set to reunite over the Easter holiday this year. However, that trip was cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Joe confirmed during an interview with Extra in July that he has not been able to be with his four daughters since the pandemic, although he noted that it "would be great" to see them.

As for his relationship with Teresa as they go through the process of ending their marriage of 20 years, Joe told Extra, "We get along fine. We talk a lot, any time I talk to the kids… Relationship is good. It's unfortunate what happened; you can't change what's done."

Teresa opens up more about how her family is handling her separation from Joe in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 After Show, which you can view, below.
