Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio

Pauly D Spotted in New Orleans Amid Custody Battle Over Daughter (PHOTOS)

We still can't believe Pauly Dad, ahem, Pauly D, is a father to 5-month-old baby Amabella. The former Jersey Shore star said that he's excited to embark on this new part of his life, so we're excited for our favorite guido.

And despite reports of a custody battle between Pauly and Amabella's mom, Amanda L. Markert, Pauly was seen looking super smiley at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans on October 27. The night before, the successful DJ performed at Harrah's casino in front of an audience of 2,000 people.

Hopefully Pauly and Amanda can work out their differences — apparently Amanda doesn't want her daughter taken away and Pauly is concerned about her parenting — and come to an agreement.

So while we wait to hopefully see pics of Pauly and baby Amabella together, click through the gallery to see this reality TV dad looking like his bubbly self in NOLA. What do you think of the pics? Weigh in below!
