Long before she became the wild new cast member on the hit MTV show Jersey Shore, Deena Cortese was an adorable little girl and RadarOnline.com has exclusive photos from her childhood.
Deena hit the Jersey Shore with a bang, and fit right in with her outrageous hard partying co-stars Snooki, JWOWW and The Situation, but she was a little cutie long before she became part of the gang.
"She's very funny," Deena's mom Joann Cortese previously told RadarOnline.com about her daughter.
"She likes to have a good time, she has a good heart, she is a sweetheart, she might not show it but she really cares about other people's feelings, she really does."
Before she was even a year old little Deena was practicing her GTL skills - she's seen playing inside a laundry basket in one of the exclusive photos obtained by RadarOnline.com.
In other pictures Deena's dressed up in a court jester costume when she was 5 1/2 and a belly dancer costume at 6 years old.
RadarOnline.com even has a picture of Deena on Santa's lap: wonder if she asked to be a famous reality star when she grows up?
