It was an exciting weekend for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice's family, as they all gathered to celebrate a very special birthday.

On January 26, Teresa posted a group photo of herself and her family members smiling in front of a gigantic birthday cake and some bubbly. "Celebrating Great Grandma's 80th Birthday at my house with the whole family..." Teresa captions the shot.

Some of Teresa's Twitter followers were confused as to why Teresa's brother, Joe Gorga, wasn't in the pic, so Teresa explained. "This is my husband's grandmother, so all of his family was at my house," Teresa tweets.

"This [is] Joe's family," Teresa tweets at another confused follower. "Grandmother and her six kids and with their grandchildren  the woman in red is my daughters' great-grandmother."

It's great that the family members were all able to celebrate such a happy occasion, and we must say that Joe's grandma looks lovely and spry for 80. Those are some good genes!

We also like that Teresa and her family are getting to bond under positive circumstances, given that the near future could be rocky for the family. Teresa and Joe are due in court soon to face federal fraud charges.

Send birthday wishes to Joe's grandma in the comments!
