Is there such as thing as baby-safe, industrial-strength hair gel? If so, Pauly D might be interested, because it turns out he's now a father. TMZ reports the 33-year-old "Jersey Shore" star (real name: Paul DelVecchio) recently welcomed a baby girl named Amabella with a 26-year-old woman he hooked up with during one of his DJ stints in Las Vegas.
Like Pauly, the mom is a Garden State resident, and she's reportedly filed court papers to establish paternity legally. TMZ says Pauly has already taken a DNA test that proves he's the pop.
The tot is 5-months-old and already shows signs of inheriting her dad's robust coif.
"I'm proud I'm a father," says Pauly. "I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."
A source adds to E! News that the former reality star "didn't have a previous relationship" with the mom, but he's "hoping to develop" one with her.
"She contacted him after the baby was born," an insider tells Us. "He, of course, had to take precautions before believing the baby was his, but he is definitely excited to be a dad. Pauly is taking responsibility and will be in this child's life one way or another."
Adds the E! spy, "[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way, but God works in mysterious ways."
Pauly should plan on some playdates with former co-star Snooki, because she's eager to matchmake Amabella with her 14-month-old son, Lorenzo.
"YAY so happy for Pauly!!" she tells Us. "Now Lorenzo has a girlfriend! Pauly will be an amazing father."
