Alongside her brothers, Antonia, who turns 14 in August, has been documented on the Bravo reality series since her mom joined the cast in the show’s third season in 2011.

In December, Antonia made her red carpet debut alongside her parents for the New York City premiere of Second Act, which was attended by the film’s stars Jennifer Lopez, Leah Remini and Vanessa Hudgens.

The eldest Gorga child proudly posed for photos with her parents. “@joeygorga & I loved seeing her turn into a little lady,” Melissa said on Instagram, calling the night out “unreal.”
