Jersey Shore star Deena Cortese has welcomed her second child!
The 34-year-old welcomed a baby boy named Cameron Theo on Saturday, May 1. He was born at "7:21pm weighing 7 pound 3 ounces and 20 inches long."
"He is such a little angel baby .. mommy is feeling well and we are all so beyond happy and we’re bursting out with so much love .. our hearts are full! We can’t wait until he meets his big brother tomorrow!!" Cortese gushed on Instagram with a series of pictures of the newborn.
The first picture showed Cortese holding her new baby in a hospital bed with her husband, Chris Buckner, which was followed by close-up snaps of the tot and another family pic of the pair wearing matching "Best Dad Ever" and "Mama Bear" t-shirts.
Fans and famous friends took to the comments to send their well wishes to the happy couple. "Congrats my meatball! Can’t wait to meet my baby!! Love you both so much 🙏🏽💙," BFF Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi wrote.
"Welcome to the fam little meatball! 🥰❤️," the Jersey Shore account said.
Cortese announced that she was expecting again in October. "Our hearts are filled with so much love and joy! CJ is going to be the best big brother ever!!! #blessed #growingfamily Sooo for everyone that was asking YES YES YES. I’m pregnant," the reality star captioned a photo with Buckner and their 2-year-old son, CJ.
One month later Cortese confirmed that anther boy was on the way. "Looks like CJ is getting a little Brother," she shared at the time.
Ahead of the due date, Cortese shared that her "pregnancy really was amazing.. and even though I feel like this last month is dragging (mostly because I’m in pain and uncomfortable) it truly flew by .. definitely having a whirlwind of emotions .. happiness ..excitement .. so much love .. but also feeling a little mom guilt because my first baby is no longer gonna be the only one .. but I know CJ and Cameron are going to be the best of friends and CJ is going to be the best big brother ever to 'baby Camin.'"
The Instagram caption continued, "We can’t wait until Cameron decides to make his debut bc we are all so ready to have him here already !!!! LOL I guess my uterus is super cozy lol my boys seem to like to hangout in there until the very end 😂."
Bucker popped the question in 2016, and the pair tied the knot in 2018. While Cameron Theo may be their second child, he might not be the last.
Cortese told Us Weekly in 2018 that Buckner wants to "have three" children. "I would be fine with two, but the more the merrier, right?" she said.
