Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife Lauren had a baby boy on Wednesday. Romeo Reign Sorrentino is the little bundle of joy’s name, the fist-pumping first-time father has announced on social media.

Among the first of the more than 715,000 likes the post got on Instagram alone were well-wishes from some of Sorrentino’s Jersey Shore co-stars, including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenny “JWoww” Farley, both of whom are moms. 

“I’m so happy!!!!!” Jenny commented, while Snooki posted, “WELCOME BABY!!!!!!”

The Sorrentinos have admitted to having dealt with infertility issues in the past. The couple, who were married in 2018, told the daytime show Strahan, Sara, and Keke that Lauren suffered a “heart-wrenching” miscarriage, but wanted to keep trying to have a baby.

Sitch and the gang will be seen again on MTV on June 3, when the second half of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation season four premieres.
