Pauly D recently found out that he's a father to a 5-month-old baby girl named Amabella and it looks like he's already embracing this new chapter in his life.

The former Jersey Shore star recently took to Twitter to show how much he's looking forward to spending time with his daughter. He wrote, "Excited to see my baby girl next week!!!!!!!!!!" And we're excited for some adorable father daughter photos!

As far as we know, Pauly hasn't met Amabella yet. Apparently, Pauly has been in a custody battle with the baby's mom, 26-year-old Amanda Markert. Pauly and Amanda met and hooked up in Las Vegas in 2012 and after finding out she had his baby, Pauly reportedly filed court documents to gain some sort of custody over his daughter.

While we're not sure if Pauly will have custody, we're happy to know that he'll be seeing his baby soon — and hopefully teaching her how to fistpump and apply hair gel. Congrats again to our favorite DJ daddy!
