Prison isn't a walk in the park, but Real Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Giudice's biggest fear about his potential four year sentence apparently has nothing to do with what might happen on the inside — it's about what he'll miss on the outside.

Joe is facing up to four years in prison after pleading guilty to multiple charges of fraud; Teresa Giudice has also plead guilty, and faces potential jail time as well. Their sentencing date is July 8, and according to Joe's business partner, Johnny "Presto" Centrella, Joe's worried about missing out on his daughters growing up.

"It’s killing him that he knows he’s going to do some time and not be with his daughters," Johnny tells Life & Style. Apparently Joe told him, "The hardest thing is going away and not seeing them grow up."

The Giudices have four lovely girls; Gia, 13, Gabriella, 11, Milania, 9, and Audriana, 5. Obviously, they are all at a stage where every year makes a big difference, so we can see why Joe is sad that he might be away during some of their major milestones.

Fortunately for the girls, Teresa is reportedly holding out that she'll be allowed to serve her time under house arrest, which would allow the girls to have at least one parent at home.
