On Friday, the personalities of the “True Hosts of New Jersey” – who broke up in December 2019 – posted touching tributes on Instagram in honor of the 20th birthday of daughter Gia.
“Happy 20th birthday @_giagiudice I love you to infinity and beyond ❤️🎂🍾🎉🎊🎁🎈 I can’t wait to celebrate with you tonight,” Teresa, 48, captioned back
In a separate post, Teresa called Gia “strong” and “ferocious,” adding, “you are doing everything wrong in the world right.”
“I love you more than you will ever know, and I admire your strength and beauty. I love you girl and I hope this is the best birthday so far !! Thank you for always being such a wonderful role model for your sisters, I am so proud of you !! “Teresa continued.

“Happy birthday to my beautiful princess, GIA! “From my little girl playing with dolls, you grew into a strong and independent woman that I am proud of. Your achievements make me smile and be proud [sic] from you, ”Joe breathed.

Thank you daily for being an understanding and supportive daughter. You are not only my daughter, but also my best friend, ”he continued.
