Before DJ Pauly D became a father, he already had a family—his Jersey Shore fam, that is! So it’s no surprise that his costars are joining in celebrating his new baby joy.
“I almost crashed my car into a pole when I found out,” the 27-year-old starlet told In Touch. “I told him how happy I am for him and he told me how excited he is to be a dad.”
As In Touch reported earlier, Pauly D, 33, became a father for the first time with an Atlantic City, N.J. woman, 26, who he met in Las Vegas while DJing.
An insider revealed that the little girl—who is already a few months old—is named Amabella and lives in Atlantic City with her mother, who has another child as well.
If mom is looking for help with Amabella, Jenni is more than willing to help out, telling In Touch “I will babysit since I live close to her.”
The new dad told In Touch that he’s “proud” to be a father. It’s a role that his friend and fellow parent Snooki, 25, thinks he’ll excel at.
“Pauly will be an amazing father,” she told In Touch.
She should know—before he became a father, he was Uncle Pauly, to Snooki’s 13-month-old son Lorenzo. Jenni agrees that this helped prepare the reality star for fatherhood.
“He was always a father figure to all of us,” JWOWW admitted. “He is great to Lorenzo so I can only imagine how great he will be with his daughter.”
When Snooki was pregnant with Lorenzo, Pauly admitted to MTV that he loved children and couldn’t wait to spoil the little boy—and now he’s spoiling him with the greatest gift of all… a friend!
“Now Lorenzo has a girlfriend,” Snooki excitedly told In Touch.
