Gia Giudice has grown up right before our eyes on the small screen! The 19-year-old college student — who studies at Rutgers University — is the daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey veteran Teresa Giudice and her estranged husband Joe Giudice. Gia, along with her three younger sisters, have been part of the hit show for most, if not all of their lives. Gia, being the oldest, made her debut during the show’s inception in 2009. From her 12th birthday, to her singing debut and red carpet moments — take a look back at Gia’s major milestones through the years!

She even accessorized with silver hoop earrings!

Christmas Day in 2014 was a special one for Gia, along with her besties Alexa Maetta and Cristianna Cardinale. The trio, who made up the girl group 3KT, performed their then-recently released single, “Season of Joy” — the group’s second single. The performance, which took place at Freehold’s iPlay America in New Jersey, aired on an episode of RHONJ.

Fast forward two years later, where Gia attended a wedding on March 15, 2016. She shared this cute photo with one of her gal pals, Miranda, that showed the pair in identical black dresses. The duo were bridesmaids in a friend’s wedding. Gia, who rarely wears her hair in an up do’, looked beautiful with her brunette locks in a low bun.

If there’s one thing RHONJ viewers have learned from watching the Giudice family, it’s that Teresa loves to take her daughters to concerts. From meet and greets with Fetty Wap and more stars, Tre loves to give her girls the VIP treatment. And, 2018’s annual Jingle Ball was no exception. Teresa, Gia and Milania Giudice all attended Z100’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden on December 7th that year. Talk about an epic early Christmas present!

This particular photo marked a major milestone for Gia, as it was the first time she revealed her plastic surgery. “Yes I got a nose job,” Gia captioned a photo, alongside her mother, Teresa on July 17, 2020. “Yes I’m swollen,” she admitted without shame, before thanking her doctor, Geoffrey Tobias, a New York City-based rhinoplasty specialist. “I’m absolutely in love with it,” Gia continued, declaring, “I am an adult now. This has been an insecurity of mine for a while and I’ve never been happier and so comfortable in my own skin!!” Dr. Tobias also shared Gia’s photo to his Instagram page, which contains more photos of his patients after surgery. That same month, Gia also revealed her new boyfriend, Christian Carmichael.
