We could hardly believe it when Gia Giudice — whom we first met as a wee one on Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey — turned 17. (Actually, we can't believe her little sister Audriana is almost 10, either — but that's another story.) Well, time keeps on flying, and now the New Jersey teen is in her senior year of high school and celebrating an all-American rite of passage.
Teresa Giudice was by her daughter's side this past weekend when Gia took part in "senior night" during her school's football game. The proud mama posted a picture of herself with her little one, who looked so grown up and gorgeous in her cheerleading uniform. (Gia's a pretty top-notch cheerleader, ICYMI.)
Both Giudice women were beaming in the sweet picture, and it's the perfect mother-daughter portrait for fall. Take a look:
Go team Giudice!
Teresa revealed what career Gia is interested in pursuing during an interview with The Daily Dish, below.
