Finally, folks:

A Jersey Shore story that has nothing to do with booze or fighting or violent acts perpetrated on a cast member by an angry baby mama.

Quite the opposite of all those things, in fact.

We now know that Deena is going to have her first child… that she’s going to have it within the next six months…and that it will be a boy.

How exciting!

"We are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness. December can’t come soon enough!” Deena added.

After the baby news was announced by his famous wife, Christopher also thanked his social media followers for the warm wishes he’s been receiving.

"Thank you everyone for all the love! We are finally starting the family we’ve always wanted and you’re the only one I want to share this blessing with.

"Love you babe @deenanicolemtv," he wrote.

Cortese and Buckner got engaged in Mexico in 2016 and then went ahead and got married this past October at Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey.

The ceremony and reception were attended by all of Deena’s colleagues from her many years on Jersey Shore, as the illustrious guest list included:

Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

Cortese’s representative confirmed the nuptials to E! News at the time, writing of her client and her soulmate:

"Finally the special day for these two amazing people together has come that will never be forgotten!

"So glad they shared the memories with her fellow cast mates who came out to show love and support to the ultimate duo."

Ever since becoming famous by doing laundry, going to the gym and also going to the tanning salon, Snooki, JWoww, Pauly D and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro have all become parents.

Ronnie has been in the news often of late in terms of his situation because he and Jen Harley welcomed a daughter into the world in early April.

But they’ve been fighting like crazy ever since and Ronnie may actually soon file for primary custody of his baby.

Incrediby, it may even be the best thing for her.
