If you haven't heard, one of the most well-known Real Housewives offspring out there recently tied the knot. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo's daughter Lauren Manzo married her long-time love Vito Scalia in July. Congrats! Considering this news, there's no better time to check out some throwback pics of the reality TV daughter.

In my opinion, Lauren really lucked out. She has reaped all of the benefits of being on reality television without actually becoming a reality TV star. I know that she is on Manzo'd with Children, but the show focuses on the Manzo family as a whole, not just Lauren. This means that she strikes that perfect balance of meaningful exposure and personal privacy. The attention she receives isn't nearly as invasive as the kind the Real Housewives receive, but still has a captive audience to promote her business projects. Still, no matter how well Lauren Manzo has maintained her privacy, it's clear that Caroline's daughter has grown so much since we first met her on RHONJ

Lauren has really come a long way and she seems very happy with her new life — but how did she get where she is today? Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

There's no better time to break out some throwback photos than a friend's birthday. There are plenty of gems in this collage Lauren posted of her and her good friend also named Lauren.

This is one of the most hilarious photos I've ever seen. She should reenact it as an adult. Too funny.

It's nice to take a glimpse at some of Lauren's personal photos and see more of her than we normally would. She may be on reality TV, but she doesn't put all of her life out there for the world to see.
