Joey Gorga Jr.’s Football Season

Antonia Gorga’s College Prep

Meanwhile, the RHONJ cast member’s eldest child is getting ready for a brand-new chapter: college. 

Back in May, Antonia shared the exciting news that she will be attending the University of Delaware in the fall of 2023. On August 14, Antonia posted an Instagram video detailing her packing process, and she noted that it was “almost time” for her to leave.

In the post’s comments, Melissa added that Antonia was less than a week away from her big move, while her dad joked “Don’t leave me” in his own message. 

Melissa also posted a video of Antonia’s suitcase and joked that she “would jump in” if she could. 

Shortly before she started packing, Antonia celebrated another major milestone. The RHONJ kid turned 18 on August 12, and she commemorated the occasion with a pink cake and a dinner with her parents and siblings. 

Between Joey’s time on the field and the beginning of Antonia’s college journey, the Gorgas certainly have a lot to celebrate these days!
