The Giudice family just celebrated a very special occasion: the birthday of none other than Joe Giudice’s mom, Filomena Giudice.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Better known as “Nonna” to her granddaughters GiaGabriellaMilania, and Audriana, Filomena celebrated another year around the sun on January 5, according to Milania. She took to Instagram that day to share several photos from the celebration, which included dinner at a restaurant. One snapshot showed Filomena posing with a birthday cake that read “Happy birthday sexy Nonna!” and another revealed that she brought an additional dessert of her own. The latter photo was captioned, “Nonna pulls out a box of her cookies at the restaurant. She would.”

After all, if there’s one thing Nonna is known for, it’s her baking and cooking. This past fall, she even “brought Thanksgiving to the Bahamas,” as Gia put it on an Instagram post at the time. The photo she shared showed nearly a dozen foil pans filled with a variety of meat dishes, rice, Caprese salad, and more mouthwatering foods.

The Thanksgiving trip was one of many the Giudice sisters have taken to visit their dad over the years, as he has resided in the Bahamas — specifically, Nassau — since 2021. “It’s so close to the States… I have a future here,” Joe said on a recent episode of ex-wife Teresa Giudice’s podcast

There, he works in “construction [and] rentals,” he added on the podcast. “It’s an easy job. I’m not complaining. I get a salary, and we’re partners for other things that I bring in, like stucco.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 13 premieres Tuesday, February 7, at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a 75-minute supersize episode. Each week, the episode will stream next day on Peacock
