Former Jersey Shore star Pauly D, whose real name is Paul DelVecchio, is a father. The MTV reality star has a love child with a woman he met in Las Vegas last year.
TMZ reports that DelVecchio and the woman, 26, met in Vegas when he had a DJing gig there. They hooked up and are now the parents of a daughter, who is a few months old.
The mother filed documents in New Jersey, establishing paternity. DelVecchio did take a DNA paternity test and it proved that he is the father.
“I'm proud I'm a father,” he said in a statement to TMZ. “I am excited to embark on this new part of my life.”
A source for E! News states that the mother and DelVecchio “didn't have a previous relationship,” but he is “hoping to develop a relationship.”
The source went on to explain that he wasn’t “planning for it to happen this way...but God works in mysterious ways.” He is ready to become a father for the child.
DelVecchio was very excited last year when his Jersey Shore co-star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi gave birth to Lorenzo. In an interview with People at the time, he said the baby was “adorable,” adding, “He already has hair! We are doing a blow out.”
He also said that he wanted to be like an uncle to Lorenzo. “...I want to be a part of that baby's life, because Snooki is one of my best friends now, and I'd love to be with her when she's delivering the baby, and I'd love to babysit,” he said.
