Teresa Giudice posted a touching tribute to daughter Gia on Tuesday, in honor of her 18th birthday.
“The day I became your mom was the day I found purpose in my life,” the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star shared on Instagram.
“Gia, you are such a sweet, gentle loving smart person and I’m so fortunate to be chosen as your mother?. Thank you for being such an amazing big sister, cousin, niece, friend & all the other roles you play, I don’t know what I’d do without you,” she continued.
The photo montage, set to Beyoncé’s “Halo,” features a timeline of Gia’s life, and also includes snapshots of her and father Joe Giudice, who is currently serving a 41-month prison term after pleading guilty to federal fraud charges back in 2014. He is set to be released this March, but faces a deportation order to his native Italy.
“You’ll never understand how much I love you & how grateful I am. I’m so proud & excited to see where your future takes you,” the mother of four continued. “Happy Birthday my gorgeous girl!!! 18 – I can’t believe it!!!”
Shortly after Teresa, 46, posted the sincere message, “Housewives” of past and present wished Gia a happy birthday, too.
“Happy happy Birthday to amazing Gia,” wrote Margaret Josephs.
“Happy Birthday Beautiful Gia,” wrote former “New Jersey” star Dina Manzo.
The Giudice family has done plenty of celebrating in recent weeks. Over the holidays, Teresa, along with daughters Gia, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 13, and Audriana, 9, enjoyed Christmas break in Jamaica.
