We’ve got a baby Situation— literally!
Jersey Shore Family Vacation star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren announced on Tuesday that they are about to become parents. The couple— who got married in November 2018— announced their big news via Christmas cookie-themed photos posted to their Instagram accounts.
In the caption of a photo that shows “Baby Sorrentino May 2021” spelled out in cookie-making ingredients, Lauren wrote, “Our biggest blessing is on it’s way.” Mike posted the same photos, using the caption, “We have a Baby Situation!”
The couple— who are currently appearing on the fourth season of ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation’— received plenty of congratulatory messages from their co-stars.
“Now that’s a situation my dude!!!!” Pauly D wrote in the comment section of Mike’s post.
“LOVE YOU BOTH sooo sooo excited for you!” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wrote.
“OH My GODDDDD I AM SO HAPPY!” Jenni “Jwoww” Farley commented.
Deena Cortese, who is currently pregnant with her second child, also wrote on Lauren’s post. “Soooo excited for you guys!!! You deserve all the happiness in the world ! Pregnancy buddies.”
Lauren and Mike had made it no secret that they were trying to start a family. In November 2019, the couple revealed that Lauren had suffered a miscarriage after Mike’s release from prison in September 2018. That baby was conceived the night Mike was released, according to Lauren.
“It was heart-wrenching,” Lauren said of the miscarriage at the time. “When I found out we were pregnant I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing.”
Months before the miscarriage, Lauren stated that she and Mike planned to have at least two children.
“We are both one of four kids, so I think we definitely think the more the merrier, but it gets expensive!” Lauren told People in May 2018, one month after she got engaged to Mike. “So we’ll have to see. Definitely more than one.”
Mike and Lauren’s baby will be the 10th 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.
