Joe, 49 — who remained in Italy — also celebrated his daughter for her birthday, posting two video montages of baby photos of Gabriella, as well as a sweet note from "Daddy."

I'm so proud what a beautiful, confident, smart, athletic, and most of all how caring you are. You shine in everything you do. Your sisters all look up to you," the father of four wrote.

The proud dad continued, "Gabriella always know how thankful and incredibly proud I am of you. I know I have been hard on you at times. I set high expectations that you sometimes feel are impossible to reach. You never ever disappointed us. We set those expectations because we want you to achieve everything you have ever wanted. I want all of your greatest dreams to come true. You deserve the absolute best that life has to offer. you helped mommy and me with your sisters so much and still do."

He then told his daughter that he wants her to "be confident always," even as she makes mistakes. "You have probably taught me more than I think I've taught you. You've taught me patie [sic]. You taught us never ever be late!!!! I admire your strength in everything we endured. You keep moving forward, never letting s--- drag you down," Joe said.

"I hope your birthday is everything you dreamed it could be," he ended his note. "Remember how loved you are. You are my sweet baby, your [sic] daddy's little girl, your sister's heroes. Happy Sweet 16 baby girl!"
