Looks like someone wanted to steal the spotlight ahead of the premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, as cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro officially welcomed his first child on Tuesday! Click through for all the details.
E! News was the first to confirm that he and his girlfriend Jen Harley welcomed a daughter on Tuesday. A source revealed that "He’s over the moon.”
Fans speculated that the birth was near after Ronnie ditched the London Premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation (others were spotted taking photos with cast members of Geordie Shore on Tuesday).
Jen also took to her Instagram stories on Monday night to documented her visit to the hospital. "Ron lands at seven so we have five hours," she shared. "I'm feeling very very uncomfortable.” Looks like everything turned out just fine for the new parents.
They first shared the news that they were expecting back in December, shortly after it was revealed that Ronnie would return to television on Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Then in early March, the couple revealed that their first child together would be a baby girl.
Ronnie is far from the first Jersey Shore cast member to have a baby. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley has two children with husband Roger Matthews. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi also has two with husband Jionni LaValle, and Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio is the father of a 3-year-old girl named Isabella.
