Joe Gorga recently had an epic birthday bash at his Jersey Shore home. The Real Housewives of New Jersey dad celebrated in Italian-inspired style, with mozzarella towers, loaves of bread that spelled out Ciao, and even a four-tier cake inspired by his parents’ native country. (Mini Colosseum swathed in frosting? Check.)

But it wasn’t just delicious snacks that made Joe’s day extra special. Melissa Gorga’s husband also got plenty of love from his family, including his daughter, Antonia Gorga. In honor of her dad’s big day, the incoming University of Delaware student made a birthday video for him that you simply must see.

On August 21, Antonia shared a TikTok video that she captioned, “Happy birthday to the best!!” Her clip showed Joe knocking on the screen and then mouthing along to a celebratory announcement: “Everyone! It’s my birthday.” 

The New Jersey teen also shared a sweet Instagram tribute to her dad. In an August 21 post, she shared two photos depicting sweet moments between herself and Joe. Both wearing blue and white, Antonia and her dad posed on a dock in front of a watery backdrop. (It appears to be the dock at their shore house, which you can see in the clip above.)

In her caption, Antonia wrote, “Happy birthday to the best dad love you!” Joe responded “Love you baby,” while proud mama Melissa chimed in “Love you both,” adding three heart emojis.

Joe Gorga’s Birthday Dinner

The Gorga family also celebrated Joe’s birthday with dinner at a local steakhouse. Melissa shared two photos from the River Palm Terrace. One pic showed her and Joe with two of their kids, Gino and Antonia. The table held bottles of sparkling water and red wine, and the family looked happy and cozy in a leather-backed booth. 

In the next photo, Joe could be seen grinning over a massive slice of chocolate cake. Topped with two candles, the towering birthday dessert was garnished with strawberries, raspberries, and dollops of whipped cream with mint leaves.

Joe’s birthday isn’t the only thing the Gorgas have celebrated recently. The RHONJ couple celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on August 20. In honor of the special occasion, Joe posted a message for Melissa on Instagram. 

“Happy anniversary to the most amazing woman who has brought 19 years of pure joy and love into my life,” Joe captioned the post, which showed pics and a video of Melissa from a recent summer trip to Italy.
