Over the holiday weekend, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member was flooded with heartfelt messages celebrating her birthday. The posts—some of which were reshared on Margaret’s Instagram Stories—came from friends, family, and Margret’s RHONJ castmates, including her bestie Melissa Gorga.

“Happy birthday to this ride or die!” Melissa captioned an Instagram carousel that included pictures of their time together. “So many amazing memories with you through the years.”

Dolores Catania also posted a tribute to her pal, writing, "Happy birthday to my beautiful glamorous girl [Margaret]. Thank u for your friendship love and support you give to each and every person in your life."

Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, followed suit and posted a photo from Margaret’s recent birthday bash at Sugar Tree Cafe.

“Wishing the happiest birthday to one of the best friends I could ever ask for,” Jackie wrote on Instagram. “Margaret, you are [an] endless source of love, support, and laughter and I can’t imagine life without you. I hope you get everything you wish for, today and always!”

But perhaps the most touching birthday message came from Margaret’s mom, Marge Sr

“Wishing you [Margaret] the happiest birthday today,” she captioned a collection of Instagram pictures, which included photos of Margaret as a child. “You have accomplished so much through the years. I am so proud of you. From when you were a baby to this day your beautiful soul, kindness, talent have always shined through. It is wonderful that everyone sees and appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity [...] I am one very lucky mom to have you as my daughter. I love you more than words can say, you brought joy to everyone that comes into your life.”

Margaret touched on the beauty of aging in a recent interview with New You. Margaret dished on the importance of work-life balance, learning to be comfortable in her skin, and her daily health practices.

“To take care of my mental health, I do a gratitude checklist of what I’m thankful for because life is complicated, and you can get down very quickly if things don’t go right. I’m always so grateful for the people in my life,” she said. “… I am very concerned with health and wellness, and I am constantly taking care of myself,” she said. “I think that was instilled in me as a young child. I’ve given up eating a lot of dairy. I exercise, take long walks and go on the Peloton. When you become a woman of a certain age, you have to do other things. I take Omega XL, which has really changed everything!”
