Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga’s daughter, Antonia, is officially 17! The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple took to Instagram to commemorate the occasion, sharing the sweetest birthday tributes to their eldest child on her special day.

On August 12, Joe penned a heartfelt message to his daughter in honor of her birthday. The proud dad revealed that Antonia was celebrating not one but two major milestones: turning 17 and getting her driver’s license. In a series of videos posted on Instagram, the teen can be seen getting ready to take her driver’s test and then celebrating with her dad after she passed the exam.

“A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never your heart. [H]appy birthday [Antonia Gorga],” Joe wrote in the caption of the clips.
