Pauly D Has A Baby Girl With Former Fling, Says He's 'Excited' About Fatherhood

Looks like Snooki isn't the only "Jersey Shore" parent anymore, because Pauly D is a dad.

According to TMZ, Pauly D, otherwise known as Paul DelVecchio, has a baby girl with an unnamed 26-year-old woman from New Jersey who he met in Las Vegas last year. They apparently got together while he was DJ'ing there and she gave birth a few months ago.

The two "didn't have a previous relationship," but the reality star "is hoping to develop a relationship" with his child's mother, a source told E! News. "[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way, but God works in mysterious ways."

The mom has allegedly filed court documents in New Jersey to formally establish paternity. According to TMZ, but Pauly D has already admitted he is a "proud father" and is "excited."

And his MTV castmates are already congratulating the 33-year-old on the news.

"Holy s--t I just heard!" Jenni "Jwoww" Farley told E! News. "I'm so f--king happy for him I just texted him. Crying! He's going to be the best dad ever!"

“I think he will be a great guido dad," Season one and two member Angelina Pivarnick told RumorFix. “I wish him the best of luck.”

He thanked his Twitter fans for their support.

The new dad might have been celebrating fatherhood with a recent stop at New York’s famed Avianne & Co, dropping $170,000 on gold chains and a Rolex watch, according to RadarOnline.com.
