A “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star has shared big news about her family. Teresa Giudice confirmed that her second-oldest daughter, Gabriella Giudice, has chosen which college she will attend in the fall of 2023.
“My beautiful porcelain doll,” Teresa Giudice captioned an Instagram post on March 17, 2023. The caption accompanied a school photo of Gabriella Giudice, who wore an off-the-shoulder black top and a cross necklace for picture day. Gabriella Giudice is notoriously private and is rarely featured in her mom’s social media posts. She keeps to herself and doesn’t like to be the center of attention.
“I loved you from the moment you opened your eyes. You are a joy, a wonderful daughter, a voice of reason, the greatest big sister. You, Gabriella, will go on to do great things. You are so kind, inclusive & organized! My mind soars with possibilities for you,” she continued.
Teresa Giudice then confirmed that Gabriella Giudice has committed to the University of Michigan. “I’m so proud of you – as my daughter but especially as a kick ass human! I love you Gabriella- today & all of my tomorrows,” she wrote.
