Teresa Giudice is especially thankful to be celebrating the holidays with her father, Giacinto Gorga, this year. On Thanksgiving, The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom posted a sweet message of gratitude to her dad, who was hospitalized earlier this month

“Thankful for him,” the New York Times bestselling author wrote in an Instagram story, alongside a snapshot of Giacinto sitting at the head of the table filled with plates of turkey, corn, and other hearty holiday food.     

Giacinto appeared to be in good spirits following his recent illness. He was hospitalized for pneumonia just a week before Thanksgiving, shortly after returning from visiting his son-in-law, Joe Giudice, in Italy. This latest hospital stint follows a series of health battles in recent years. In 2018, he also sought medical help after suffering from pneumonia and a hematoma in his stomach. 

Thankfully, The Real Housewives of New Jersey grandfather — or nonno, as Teresa’s daughters affectionately call him on the show —seems to be on the mend, just in time to ring in the holidays.

Teresa also made sure to express her gratitude for her daughters, sharing a heartwarming photo of her and her four children alongside the caption, Thankful for my beautiful daughters they put a smile on my face everyday.”

While Teresa, her father, and her four kids celebrated Thanksgiving in New Jersey, Teresa’s husband, Joe, continues to settle into life in Italy. Joe, who is still awaiting a final ruling in his ongoing deportation case, recently revealed that he’s started a new job and taken up MMA training. He also has his own quality family time to look forward to — Teresa and Joe’s daughters will reportedly be returning to Italy for Christmas.
