How to Watch

"Joey got his braces," Melissa wrote in the caption of her April 25 Instagram post, which featured a sweet photo of the RHONJ mom in the car with her son alongside her 16-year-old daughter, Antonia Gorga

In addition to Joey being all smiles as he showed off his new set of shiny braces, Melissa also revealed that both she and Antonia got their own dental devices during the visit to the orthodontist. "Invisalign for [Antonia] and I," she added in the caption of her post, along with smiling face emojis.

In addition to putting Joey's new braces on display, Melissa also shared glimpses of her family, including her husband, Joe Gorga, 14-year-old son, Gino Gorga, and Antonia, all coming together to celebrate her youngest child's recent birthday. "What a day celebrating my baby!!" wrote Melissa in the caption of her April 24 Instagram post, featuring a series of captures from Joey's birthday festivities, which included a fun limo ride with friends, good times at a water park, and plenty of cupcakes.

She went on to add, "This is what life is about. Good memories, family [and] friends!"

Earlier this month, Melissa reflected on how much both her sons have grown over the years. “It’s crazy how we just filmed the show like 6 months ago! And watching even my boys on TV tonight they look dramatically different [and] younger [than] this picture taken this weekend!” Melissa wrote alongside a sweet photo of herself with Gino and Joey in the caption of her April 5 Instagram post. "I cannot believe how kids change so quickly."

Melissa also recently shared the cutest throwback Easter photo of baby Antonia, donning a flower dress and surrounded by furry bunnies. She wrote in the caption of the adorable post, "Happy Easter from vintage [Antonia]."
