• Joe Giudice shared a throwback photo on Instagram featuring his eldest daughter, Gia Giudice
  • Fans showered the post with positive comments, saying baby Gia looked “super cute”
  • Gia was the only daughter who did not visit Joe during the Easter holiday last month

Fans were delighted when Joe Giudice decided to show off a throwback photo of his eldest daughter Gia Giudice on social media.

On Monday, the 49-year-old former reality star took to Instagram to share a baby photo of Gia. In the snap, Joe looked proud and happy while helping baby Gia swim in the pool.

“My baby Gia,” the father of four wrote in the caption.

Gia, now 21, quickly left a comment on her dad’s post, writing, “Love you [red heart emojis].”

Fans showered Joe’s Instagram update with positive messages, saying they found the young Gia very cute and adorable.

“Oh my goodness! How super cute is this?” one wrote.

“Why does Gia have the same exact face? How adorable are the both of you?” another commented.

“You look handsome and Gia [is] such a cutie,” a third user added.

It should be noted that when his daughters paid him a visit during the Easter holiday last month, only Gia was not able to make it. Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 12, spent the holidays with Joe in Nassau, Bahamas.

Gia decided to stay behind in the U.S. with their mom, Teresa Giudice. In an Instagram post, the 49-year-old “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star shared that she loved having her “firstborn” by her side at the time as she was busy with some working engagements.

Though Joe and Teresa are staying in different countries, the exes vowed to continue co-parenting their children. Joe announced late last year that he was willing to “do everything in my power” to return to the U.S. and reunite with his daughters.

Joe got deported to his home country, Italy, in 2019, after serving nearly three years in federal prison for fraud and seven months in an Immigration and Customers Enforcement (ICE) detention center. He eventually moved to the Bahamas.

Joe and Teresa officially separated in December 2019. Their divorce was finalized in September the following year.

Joe previously revealed that aside from his children visiting him in the Bahamas from time to time, he also talks to his daughters “all the time via phone or FaceTime.”
