The next generation! Several of the original Jersey Shore stars are proud parents and fans have seen them go from the gym, tan, laundry lifestyle to raising kids.
DJ Pauly D (real name: Paul D. DelVecchio Jr.) took people by surprise by revealing he has a daughter in October 2013. The MTV star introduced his Instagram followers to adorable Amabella Sophia shared with his ex Amanda Markert in January 2014 and more recently, he gushed over Amabella’s charming personality.
“She’s like me, she’s a little prank war champion,” Pauly exclusively told In Touch about his 7-year-old in November 2020, revealing she is just as clever as her dad and always keeps him in good spirits. “She hides everyone’s phones. She hides everyone’s things. You know, she’s funny … she makes me laugh.”
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Pauly said he and his former flame had to work out a more convenient coparenting arrangement. “It’s really difficult to see her, but thank God for technology and the FaceTimes,” he shared about how they stay in contact. “She’s able to do school at home, and I can [do] school with her online, too. So thank God for technology is all I’m going to say. Yeah. And wifi.”
After the show premiered in 2009 and became a huge hit, several of his fellow costars welcomed children of their own. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her husband, Jionni LaValle, are now parents of three following their romance which blossomed in 2010 during season 3 of the reality series. The lovebirds took their relationship to the next level by getting married on November 29, 2014.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley is also a mama. She and her now-ex Roger Mathews welcomed two kids together, Meilani and Greyson. The former flames finalized their divorce in August 2019, but stay in touch for the sake of their little ones.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro shares a beautiful daughter named Ariana Sky with ex Jen Harley — and the Jersey Shore family keeps on growing with the recent pregnancies of Deena Cortese and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s wife, Lauren Sorrentino (née Pesce).
Deena welcomed baby No. 2 in May 2021 and Mike and Lauren are expecting their first child together any moment now. “Soaking up these last few weeks (days?) with just me, [our dog] Mosey and Mike. Our life will change forever very soon, and I can’t wait to start this new journey as we grow our family!” Lauren gushed.
