Happy birthday, Teresa Giudice!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star turned 45 Thursday and celebrated with her family, including her four daughters—Gia, 16, Gabriella, 12, Milania, 11, and Audriana, 7.

Teresa posted on her Instagram page a photo of them surrounding her as well as a black and white zebra-style frosted cake that reads, "Happy birthday Teresa."
