Former Jersey Shore star Pauly D is the father of a love child, born to a girl he met while he was DJing in Las Vegas last year, according to a new report.
Given his lifelong devotion to getting it in with DTF chicks, maybe this shouldn't come as a major surprise in a sense. Still, it certainly came out of left field.
The unnamed mother is 26, and is a resident of New Jersey. She and Pauly are not together. The baby girl is a few months old, and living with her mom.
The mom has filed court documents in New Jersey to formally establish paternity, while Pauly D has already taken a DNA test and confirmed he's the dad.
The baby's mother and the Rhode Island native "didn't have a previous relationship," but the new dad "is hoping to develop a relationship" with her.
"[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way," a source close the the DJ and MTV personality says, "but God works in mysterious ways."
Pauly is "ready to jump in and take responsibility as a dad."
The star, 33, also briefly told TMZ, "I'm proud I'm a father."
"I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."
Congratulations ... hopefully.
