Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga's dad, Giacinto Gorga, is in the hospital. His son, Joe, confirmed the news to Page Six. “He has pneumonia,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey brother said. “He’s alright. He’s not that bad, hopefully. He’ll be okay. So let’s see what happens.”

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

The Gorga patriarch just returned from a trip to Italy where he visited his son-in-law, Joe Giudice, who is in his native Italy as he awaits a decision in his ongoing deportation case appeal.

Over the last several years, Giacinto has faced several hospitalizations, including earlier this year. Teresa even wrote about her father's health issues in her 2017 book release, Standing Strong.

In a 2018 interview with The Daily Dish, Teresa opened up about the precautions her family has taken in the last few years around her dad, who lives with her and her four daughters. "That's the thing, none of us can be sick around him because he catches it right away. We're constantly always washing our hands," Teresa explained. "Like when you have a baby and you make sure everything's clean, that's how you have to be with him because he gets sick easily."

On WWHL this week, Teresa opened up about her dad following his trip to Italy, below.
