Santa is coming to town, and Melissa told HollyBaby.com EXCLUSIVELY what he’ll be bringing her kids this year!
Melissa and Joe Gorga won’t be spending this Christmas with Teresa Giudice, Melissa’s sister-in-law and The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast mate, but they still have big plans with Antonia, 6, Gino, 4, and Joey, 1! And the kids are just as excited as they are: “Gino’s really into [Christmas] this year because he’s four. Joey, he’ll be ripping the gifts open and stuff,” Melissa told HollyBaby.com exclusively at the Reeve Foundation Magical Evening Gala At NYC’s Cipriani Wall Street on Nov. 30.
Gino and Joey might be excited for opening presents, but their parents say the kids don’t care what they get this year! “You know what’s pretty amazing?” Joe said. “We always ask our kids what they want, and they can’t answer. They’re just such good kids.”
So what are they giving the kids for Christmas?
“Antonia is going to get the Wii,” Melissa said. “She wants the dance thing that you can dance on the Wii. And Gino wants an iPad because he likes to download all of the games.”
Melissa said she’s the one that picked out the gifts this year! “It takes them a lot to decide,” she revealed. “I kind of decided on those gifts myself.”
But before Santa (aka Melissa) comes with the gifts, they have to make cookies! “We bake cookies every year,” she said. “Usually with my sisters, we get together and we bake cookies.” And, according to Joe, they both eat the cookies as “Santa!”
What are YOU getting your kids this year, HollyMoms?
