  • Teresa Giudice shared new and old photos with Gabriella on Instagram to mark the latter's birthday

  • Fans greeted the birthday girl and showered her with compliments in the comments on both posts

Teresa and Joe Giudice celebrated their second daughter's birthday on social media.

On Wednesday, the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star took to Instagram to share a couple of snaps featuring her and her daughter, Gabriella, who turned 18 on the same day.

The first photo showed the mother and daughter posing side by side, rocking different gowns. Based on their outfits, it was taken at Teresa's wedding to Luis "Louie" Ruelas in early August.

The second snap was an older photo of the two smiling side by side. A younger Gabriella held a doll wearing the same outfit as hers in the picture.

"Every day I learn from you, I get to know [and] watch the world through your eyes. You are so talented, thoughtful, smart and kind. I love being your mom [and] I can't wait to see what the future holds," Teresa captioned her post.

She continued, "Thank you for being the best big sister, helping me so much around the house and showing your sisters the true meaning of family! All of my love to you on your 18th birthday, Gabriella!"

Meanwhile, Joe shared a photo of him standing close to his second daughter while they stared at the camera.

"Happy Birthday, Gabriella. I love you so much and everything about you. Don't ever change. I'm so blessed," he captioned the post.

Many fans flooded both posts with well-wishes and birthday greetings for the young celebrity.

"She's so beautiful! She has a look all of her own. She doesn't look like her sisters or Mom, who are beautiful look-alikes," one wrote on Teresa's post.

"Just stunning! Happy Birthday to your sweet and beautiful Gabriella," another added.

"She looks like you the most. Happy Birthday, Gabriella," a different fan commented on Joe's post.

Aside from Gabriella, Teresa and Joe share other daughters, Gia, 21, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 13. Among the four, Gabriella appears to be the most elusive since she has opted to keep her social media accounts private, unlike her sisters.

Last month, the exes also put on a united front when they celebrated their youngest daughter's birthday by sharing sweet messages for Audriana on Instagram.
