It’s a girl for Jenni ‘JWoWW’ Farley and her fiance, Roger Mathews! The Jersey Shore stars welcomed their first child today!
The couple, who are currently starring on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, are now the parents of daughter Meilani Alexandra Mathews. Roger took to his Twitter to announce that their little girl had (finally) arrived, weighing in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces.
“Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. I’m humbled,” he tweeted on Sunday morning.
While Jenni’s pregnant BFF, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, has yet to comment on her friend’s new addition, several of Jenni’s former ‘Jersey Shore’ roommates were quick to congratulate them.

Jenni and Roger did not post any photos of the baby (because they are undoubtedly going to sell the first pics to a tabloid–duh!). They did, however issue a statement via Jenni’s rep regarding the baby’s birth.
“Meilani and her parents are doing great and are happy and healthy,” the rep told E! News. Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells.”
MTV, the home network of ‘Jersey Shore’ and its spin-off Snooki & JWOWW, also issued a statement to the press: “We’re fist pumping in celebration!”
Little Meilani is the third baby to be born to a ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member. In 2012, Snooki gave birth to her first child, Lorenzo, and in 2013, it was discovered that Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio had fathered a child after a one night stand in Las Vegas. His daughter, Amabella, just turned one. Pauly continues to battle Amabella’s mother for custody.
Earlier this week, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino said that he, too, is ready to settle down and become a father, so there may be many more ‘Jersey Shore’ babies in the near future!
Congrats to Jenni and Roger!
