It’s that time of the year when all the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies make plans to hit the Jersey Shore and watch the Fourth of July fireworks paint the night sky. But this year, Jacqueline Laurita has other plans — including going to Vegas for Independence Day weekend and welcoming a new member to the family!

Jacqueline made the announcement that her brother and sister-in-law (who currently reside in Nevada) will be having their first child on July 4!

Taking my boys and @sarahhrehovcik to Vegas today! My Godchild will be born tomorrow! (My brother & sis-in-laws 1st baby) So excited!! XO,” Jac tweeted on July 3. We can expect to see tons of pictures after the baby is born — if Jac isn’t too busy basking in her newfound godmother-hood.

The anxious aunt even posted a video of her boys, Nicholas and CJ on the plane en route to sunny Las Vegas.

Jac isn’t the only one having an action-packed weekend. Co-star Melissa Gorga is currently partying it up in Orlando, Fla. at the Red Hot and Boom Fourth of July Celebration, while Mel’s sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is kicking back on the Jersey Shore with her girls.

Are you excited that Jacqueline is going to be an aunt? Tell us below!
