Jersey Shore's Mike Sorrentino & His Wife Lauren Revealed The Sex Of Their Baby

That's right, The Situation is going to be a dad!

Updated: 

A little "situation" will be joining the Jersey Shore family in a matter of months. In November, Mike Sorrentino announced his wife Lauren is pregnant with their first child and, just a few short weeks later, the couple revealed the sex of their baby on the way.

It’s A Boy!

On Tuesday, Dec. 8, the couple announced in a sweet Instagram post that they are expecting a baby boy next year. Lauren and Mike posed in front of a larger-than-life Christmas tree, decorated in blue colored lights. “Gym, tan, we’re having a baby boy,” the proud dad-to-be captioned the post, referencing his famous Jersey Shore catchphrase, “gym, tan, laundry.”

Over on their baby’s Instagram account — @itsbabysituation, which has more than 50,000 followers, in case you were wondering — the couple revealed (through the “voice” of their child) that they wanted to throw a sex reveal party, but because of the current pandemic (or “the C word”) they decided to do it virtually.

“Please share all your baby boy advice and favorite places to shop for cute baby clothes as my mama cannot wait to shop for me!,” Baby Situation wrote in the caption of the post. “Mama and daddy are thrilled and mama is about to start full on nursery planning!”

Baby Sorrentino Will Arrive In May 2021

The Sorrentinos used a festive holiday cookie theme writing out "Baby Sorrentino May 2021" using flour and sprinkles to announce that they're expecting. In one photo, their sonogram can be seen sitting on the counter. "Our biggest blessing is on it's way," Lauren wrote in the caption of her announcement.

This will be the first child for the couple after Lauren suffered a miscarriage last year. During an appearance on Good Morning America's Strahan, Sarah, & Keke in November 2019, the couple opened up about how difficult this was for them. "When I found out we were pregnant I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and this was our blessing," Lauren recalled. "It was hard. It was really difficult."

Unsurprisingly, Mike's Jersey Shore cast mates couldn't be more excited for the couple. "Now that's a situation my dude!!!!," Pauly "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio, commented on their announcement. "Love you both! Soooo sooooo excited for you!," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi added. "So excited for you both!," Deena Cortese, who is currently expecting her second child, wrote. "Love you guys so much!"

In an interview with InTouch Weekly in July, Lauren said she has plenty to learn about motherhood from the moms on Jersey Shore — Polizzi, Cortese, and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. "They're all such amazing moms," she told the magazine. "I mean, they've shown me just to be comfortable in your own skin, especially while being in the public eye, you know, not letting the opinions and stuff from other moms get in the way of your parenting because everybody's different."

As she and Mike prepare for their little one, fans can follow along on their journey by following their child's Instagram account, which Lauren said she created so she can share all of her pregnancy updates and have a "lifetime timeline of pictures" for her baby. Stay tuned for more updates to come from "Baby Situation.”
