Teresa Giudice made sure her eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, had a milestone birthday to remember. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom recently took to Instagram to share a heartwarming tribute to her daughter as Gia celebrated her special day with a fabulous 21st birthday extravaganza in Miami.
"To my brilliant and beautiful daughter on her 21st birthday," Teresa wrote in the caption of her January 8 post, alongside a stunning picture of the mother-daughter duo. She added in the post, "You are a rare and wonderful soul who makes the world a better place. Continue to be strong and never stop being YOU!! I am so proud and amazed of the woman you have become. Happy birthday baby."
Several Bravolebs offered Teresa's first-born daughter birthday wishes in the comments of the post. "Happy birthday, Gia," wrote RHONJ's Dolores Catania, while The Real Housewives of New York City's Sonja Morgan added, "Love." Gia's aunt, RHONJ's Melissa Gorga, also commented, "I can’t believe she’s 21!!!"
"I can’t believe my baby is 21, for 21 years I’ve had the deep joy of being your mom," Teresa wrote in the caption of the January 8 post. She went on to add, "You are my rock Gia, my port in the storm of life, you lead your sisters as amazing example, you impress everyone you meet with your maturity [and] you always make sure those around you are happy. I adore you [and] I can’t wait to see all the successes life will bring you. Happy Birthday, beautiful girl!"
Gia replied in the comments, "I love you, mommy." The RHONJ daughter also shared the birthday love she received from family and friends in her Instagram Stories, including a sweet post from her uncle, Joe Gorga, and an adorable throwback post from Melissa, as well as one from their daughter, Antonia Gorga.
Gia also shared a selfie while on a plane following her Miami birthday festivities, writing in her Instagram Stories, "This was the best weekend of my life!!!!"
