Teresa Giudice’s four daughters have grown up in front of our eyes on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and believe it or not, Gabriella just turned 18. To mark the special occasion, Teresa threw her second eldest child a lavish birthday dinner on October 4 and gave fans an inside look via her Instagram Stories.
The RHONJ mom shared a sweet photo of Gabriella posing with her birthday cake as her smiling sisters — Gia, 21; Milania, 16; and Audriana, 13 — all huddled around her. Elsewhere in her IG Stories, Teresa posted pics of their decadent meals, including steaks and lobster tails, along with videos of the many guests, including Teresa’s new husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, singing “Happy Birthday” to Gabriella.
Earlier in the day, Teresa uploaded a stunning mother-daughter photo from her and Louie’s August 6 wedding, along with a throwback photo from when Gabriella was a little girl. “Everyday I learn from you, I get to know [and] watch the world through your eyes,” she captioned the October 4 post. “You are so talented, thoughtful, smart, and kind, I love being your mom [and] I can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
The RHONJ mom continued, “Thank you for being the best big sister, helping me so much around the house, and showing your sisters the true meaning of family! All of my love to you on your 18th birthday Gabriella!”
Several Bravolebs, including Teresa’s RHONJ castmates Dolores Catania, Jackie Goldschneider, Margaret Josephs, and Jennifer Aydin, and The Real Housewives of Miami’s Alexia Nepola, chimed in to wish Gabriella a happy birthday in the comments. They were joined by Gia, who wrote, “queen sis,” adding a white heart emoji.
The same day, the girls’ father, Joe Giudice, posted his own Instagram birthday tribute to his now-18-year-old daughter. “Happy Birthday Gabriella,” he captioned a photo of them, adding several emojis. “[I love] you so much and everything about you[.] [D]on’t ever change[.] I’m so blessed[.]”
As she did with Teresa’s post, Gia, who recently vacationed with Gabriella in Ibiza, commented on her dad’s photo, this time sharing three red heart emojis.
If this isn’t sisterly love at its finest, we don’t know what is.
