Joe Giudice might be thousands of miles away, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have Teresa Giudice and their four daughters on his mind this Valentine's Day. In fact, he took to Instagram to pay homage to the important women in his life with several touching tributes to Teresa, as well as Gia, Milania, Audriana and Gabriella.
In a post captioned, "Thank you," Joe shared a photo of Teresa just months after they reportedly separated along with a message showing his gratitude for how hard she works for their family, a topic that was mentioned on The Real Housewives of New Jersey on February 12.
"Thank you for providing so well for this family. I think we make a great team. I really appreciate you," the message reads. "Happy [heart emoji] day."
Next up, Joe, who is currently in Italy as he awaits for a decision to be made in his ongoing immigration case, posted a special note for their girls. "This morning I think of you all in my [heart]. You are not here, but there is evidence of you all around me. I am struck with how lucky I am to receive the gift of your love and affection every single day," he wrote. "I know I mess up a lot. I embarrass, get distracted, don’t listen to the things you ask me. But, you forgive me. Every time. You tell me that it’s ok and that you love me. There is no keeping track of the things I did that hurt your feelings, or the things that I went wrong on cause of me. You’ve loved me at my worst and it has changed me for the better as a father."
He continued, "My four beautiful daughters taught me to trust that love will pull us through. Watching all of you grow makes my heart bounce. I am fortunate to have you all. I’m celebrating each of you this [heart emoji] day by asking you each will you be my valentine? You’ve each filled my heart with joy. In our family love is nutty and weird to others but I wouldn’t have it any other way, because there is tangible evidence of [heart emoji] presence. I want you to each know one thing never changes, 'You all mean the world to me.' No other [man emoji] can replace my [heart emoji] and [fist emoji] for you all because on [camera emoji] and off [camera emoji] it will always be unending and never changing! Love you, daddy."
Joe wrapped up his Valentine's Day well wishes by thanking his Instagram followers, aka "Insta family."
