Over the weekend, Giudice, 51, shared a loving tribute to Gabriella on Instagram, reflecting on everything the teen has achieved and the “incredible” person she has become. “My porcelain doll Gabriella, as you embark on this exciting journey at the University of Michigan, I want you to know how deeply proud I am of you,” she began her message.
“Your relentless dedication and hard work have brought you to this moment, and I have no doubt that you will continue to impress and thrive,” she continued. “Seeing you grow into the incredible woman you are becoming, fills my heart with indescribable joy. Your strength, resilience, and determination inspire me each and every day.”
Giudice also shared her hopes for her daughter’s college experience. “Cherish the opportunities that lie ahead, and remember to embrace every experience that comes your way,” she wrote. “You are my sunshine, my pride, and my everything. Wherever life takes you, I will always be here, cheering you on and supporting you every step of the way.”
The mom of four — she and ex-husband Joe Giudice are also parents to daughters Gia, 22, Milania, 17, and Audriana, 13 — concluded her message with one final wish for Gabriella as she begins this new chapter.
Giudice’s tribute post also included a pair of photos. The first captured her and Gabriella all dressed up as they posed together in front of a restaurant. The second snapshot showed the Bravo personality and her boyfriend Luis “Louie” Ruelas surrounded by her four daughters and Ruelas’ son Louie.
Last month, Giudice threw a joint graduation party for Gabriella and Gia, who in May graduated from Rutgers University with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
