It’s time to welcome another guido baby into the Jersey Shore family! Former cast member Pauly D (full name Paul DelVecchio) is reportedly the father of a baby girl.
According to TMZ, the DJ met his 26-year-old baby mama while he was DJing in Las Vegas last year. They’re not currently in a relationship, however, he says he plans to be part of the baby’s life. “I’m proud I’m a father,” he admitted. “I am excited to embark on this new part of my life.”
The baby’s mom has reportedly filed court documents for a formal paternity test.
With this news, Pauly is now the second Jersey Shore star to become a parent. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi welcomed her son, Lorenzo, in August 2012 with fiance Jionni LaValle. Her journey was documented on the reality show, and continues to be shown on her spin-off Snooki & JWoww.
“Holy s–t, I just heard!” Pauly’s Jersey Shore cast mate and friend, Jenni “JWoww” Farley told E! “I’m so f—ing happy for him! I just texted him…crying! He’s going to be the best dad ever.”
