Pauly D’s First Tweet as a Dad: Amabella Was Unexpected But Is a “Blessing”

Now that we’ve had some time to process the fact that everyone’s favorite guido DJ is now a proud papa, we’re starting to love the idea that Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio has a little one out there in the world. Having gone public with his lovechild, Amabella, only days ago, the former Jersey Shore star is finally ready to speak out.

While in North Carolina for his appearance at LABEL Charlotte, Pauly got inspirational on Twitter. “Sometimes in life things aren't planned and they may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing,” Pauly tweeted on October 24.

We are so glad that Pauly D is taking the news well and is taking fatherhood seriously. There are even reports that he’s fighting for custody of little Amabella!

We finally discovered that the baby’s mama, and Pauly’s one-night stand, is named Amanda Markert, and is a former Hooters waitress and current VIP hostess at Harrah’s in Atlantic City. She’s a Jersey girl — and so is little Amabella.

SallyAnn Salsano, Founder and President of 495 Productions (and executive producer of Jersey Shore), opened up to Wetpaint Entertainment and assured everyone that Pauly will make an excellent dad and that she will ensure that Amabella will grow up to be a true Jersey gal.

“I will absolutely make sure he takes her down to the Jersey Shore,” SallyAnn said.
