"I've always been a father," Joe told E! News during a recent interview. "I've always done everything but Teresa did all the driving around, running around, paying for everything and doing all this and doing all that. I never knew how many expenses there are just in the activities."

But, luckily, Joe does have the help of his eldest daughter, Gia, who he explained is "very mature for her age, which is good." He added, "So is [11-year-old] Gabriella actually...having them two around was a big help."
