Pauly D ‘excited to be a father,’ reveals he has a baby girl
Pauly D is a dad! The “Jersey Shore” stud has revealed that he has a baby girl.
Well, we can’t say we didn’t see that one coming...
“I’m proud I’m a father,” the reality TV alum, real name Paul DelVecchio, told TMZ. “I am excited to embark on this new part of my life.”
So, we suppose, his gym-tan-laundry routine will need to change to gym-tan-baby?
The 33-year-old Rhode Island native fathered the child, who is now a few months old, with a 26-year-old woman who is currently living in New Jersey with the baby, the site reported. The mother said she met the GTL-loving guido while he was deejaying in Las Vegas.
The mother reportedly filed court documents in New Jersey to formally establish paternity; however, TMZ reports that Pauly D already took a DNA test that determined he was the father.
The spiky-haired gel enthusiast reportedly always wanted kids. Though he “didn’t have a previous relationship” with the baby’s mother, but he “is hoping to develop a relationship” with her, a source told E! News.
"[He] wasn’t exactly planning for it to happen this way, but God works in mysterious ways,” the source said.
The hard-partying funnyman seems to be taking the news well, as he retweeted Tuesday several messages of congrats and news stories about him being a dad.
Pauly isn’t the only “Jersey Shore” alum to become a parent. Costar Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, currently competing on “Dancing With the Stars,” is mother to a nearly 14-month-old boy named Lorenzo, who she had with fiance Jionni LaValle.
