“We’re so excited to announce we’re expecting Baby Buckner #2 May 1, 2021,” Deena wrote on Instagram. “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.”
Many of Deena’s ‘Jersey Shore’ co-stars (past and present) sent their congratulations to the growing family, including Deena’s fellow meatball, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who wrote she was “so excited” for her former co-star. Jenni “JWOWW” Farley called the announcement the “best news” and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren expressed their own excitement, as did former ‘Jersey Shore’ star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.
This will be the second child for Deena and Chris, who welcomed son CJ in January of 2019.
Baby Buckner will be the ninth child born to the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast: Snooki and husband Jionni LaValle have three children together, Jenni has two children with ex-husband Roger Mathews, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has a daughter with former girlfriend Jen Harley, and Pauly D fathered a daughter in 2013 with a Vegas cocktail waitress.
Deena is set to appear on the upcoming season of ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation,’ premiering next month on MTV.
