Deena Cortese just broke some exciting news for fans and followers:
Another precious meatball is on the way!
On Sunday, the long-time Jersey Shore star confirmed her pregnancy news on Instagram, sharing adorable, seasonal photos of herself and husband Chris Buckner, along with their 21-month-old son, CJ.
"We're so excited to announce we’re expecting Baby Buckner #2 May 1, 2021," the expecting reality star captioned this post.
"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 33-year oold added.
As you can see, Cortese and Buckner alerted supporters to this baby bombshell by posing alongside some pumpkins on which was scrawled some revealing information.
Deena's blouse also read, "I smell a child, while her husband's black shirt featured the text, "Can't scare me, my wife is pregnant."
In the Comments section of Deena's message, Chris wrote the following:
"Anotha 1! Love you so much babe. To the best mama bear ever!"
The MTV personality first became a mother in January of 2019, writing at the time:
"Our Little Man has finally arrived. Christopher John Buckner (CJ) born January 5th at 4:41 pm at a whopping 20.5 inches..6 Lb 8.5 ounces."
About a year later, she had to sign online and tell trolls to stop bullying her very young son.
"I've been getting a lot of messages about CJs feet, how he walks and other mothers ridiculing me for not putting shoes on him at 1 years old," Deena wrote on her Instagram Story several months back.
"Please before messaging me telling me what I should do or asking and making comments about why he's not wearing shoes...
"maybe ask if I've already looked into what you see could be wrong ..because more than likely I have."
On air, Deena spent a bulk of this past season feuding with Angelina Pivarnick after she and her other female co-stars gave an insult-filled speech at Angelina's wedding late last year.
"After seeing the episode and seeing her true colors … I can care less if I ever see her again in my life,” Deena said on social media in July, referring to Angelina and some of her actions on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
This said, both stars will return for the upcoming season.
It kicks off with back-to-back installments on November 19.
For these new episodes, Cortese, Jenni Farley, Miike Sorrentino, Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Pivarnick will be take over an entire Nevada resort.
Once there, the pals and frenemies will live their "best lives" in their own bubble, according to a recent MTV press release.

With more than 10 years of ups and downs and humor and heart, the cast has always made it out on the other side stronger than ever -- until now.
Angelina’s wedding and the speech heard around the world left the family fractured, leaving the boys with only one option -- make the family whole again.
So, DJ Pauly D takes over a resort and with the help of Mike "The Situation," Vinny and Ronnie, they hatch a plan to reunite the girls, invite the extended family to distract them from the drama, and hope for the best.
It seemed like a good idea at the time, but with this group you never know what will happen.
While you consider what all that means, join us in sending congratulatory mesages to Denna and Chris!
Way to go, guys!
