After a challenging year, Teresa Giudice celebrated her 44th birthday on Wednesday, and the reality star spent most of her special day working.
A source tells ET Teresa was filming scenes for the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey on her b-day, but that didn't keep her from having a good time when her co-stars and family threw an impromptu celebration after they wrapped for the day.
Teresa shared some heartwarming family photos from her b-day dinner -- which a source tells ET was a low-key affair that included a special cake -- where she celebrated with her four "beautiful girls," daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana.
ET spoke with the couple just days before Joe's departure where they opened up how they going to cope with being apart yet again. "As long as I have my four healthy beautiful daughters and healthy husband and I am happy," Teresa shared. "That's all that matters." Check out the video below to hear more.
