Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is a father.
This is somewhat of a frightening thought for those who have watched the reality star do little but drink, party and hook up with various women over the course of numerous Jersey Shore seasons.
But, if you're included in this camp of doubters and generally considered citizens, then we have some encouraging news:
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro may actually not be a father after all!
According to In Touch Weekly, the muscle-bound meathead himself has questions about his status and may ask ex-girlfriend Jen Harley for a paternity test.
This rumor comes on the heels of an epic and vicious ongoing fight between Ronnie and Harley.
One that has seen the former refer to the latter as a "hoe" and a "cum dumpster" and the latter shoot back that Ronnie is a "coke head" who is unfit for parenting.
It's been both hilarious and very disturbing to watch this back-and-forth take place online.
Both halves of the former couple have aired their dirty laundry in the most viral of social media forums, going back and forth over allegations of sex tapes and cheating.
For those who need to get caught up, here you go:
At the sad heart of this feud is that Ronnie and Jen welcomed a daughter named Ariana back on April 3.
"They had only been dating for a few months when Jen discovered she was pregnant," a source tells In Touch. "Pals are telling him to get a paternity test."
This is a silly line of reasoning, of course.
A few months? It only takes one night, and really just a few seconds, to get someone pregnant.
Ronnie is somehow worth over $3 million once you factor in his endorsement deals and his salary and those close to the star just want to make sure he's protected.
"He will honor his commitment [if he really is the dad]," says the source. "He feels so angry and betrayed right now. He's determined to go through with it."
Is he really, though?
Not according to Ronnie himself.
Late on Wednesday, Ortiz-Magro shared a screenshot of a Daily Mail article that cited this paternity test chatter and wrote several hashtags over it. They include:
“#GetNewSources,” “#ThatsMyWorld,” “ShesMyLife,” and “FakeNews."
Furthermore, Ronnie went ahead and shared a new photo of his very cute little girl.
In the picture, Ortiz-Magro’s newborn is seen lying down and actually holding her own bottle, an impressive feat Ronnie notes via several more hashtags:
#MyTwin, #MyLife, #ArianaSky
Ronnie and Jen are allegedly on decent terms right now and both have said their focus will remain on raising their kid in a happy and healthy environment.
"This is a private matter that should have never been made public,” Ronnie said last week amid the ugly fight with Harley, concluding:
“I remain focused on my daughter and she is my No. 1 priority.”
Good. Let's hope he means that.
