Congratulations to Pauly D on that baby he just learned he has!
The "Jersey Shore" star has a five-month-old daughter, Amabella, with 25-year-old Amanda Markert, a cocktail waitress at Harrah's in Atlantic City. According to Page Six, Pauly and Amanda hooked up in Las Vegas where she worked as a Hooters waitress.
"I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life," Pauly D told TMZ, which is about all you can say when your ex has filed a paternity suit and you've already taken a DNA test.
Pauly's "Jersey Shore" costar, and now fellow parent, Snooki, offered her congratulations. "YAY so happy for Pauly!! Now [her son] Lorenzo has a girlfriend! Pauly will be an amazing father," she told Us Weekly.
Fellow "Jersey Shore" denizen Mike "The Situation" Sorentino recently opened up to Metro about overcoming his prescription drug addiction and returning to the show after rehab.
“I had a lot of questions in my head: Was I gonna be the same Mike? Were people gonna like me? Was I gonna be able to withstand the temptations of being around the club, and the liquor? I was. A big misconception about me was that I mixed a lot things — I never mixed. I really just stayed with one thing, and I really wasn’t the biggest drinker. I got closer to my roommates than I ever was and the show was a success.”
