“He tried to keep the baby news a secret,” a close pal revealed.
“Most of his family and friends found out the news the same time as the rest of the world did. Everyone was shocked!”
And just hours after it was revealed that the DJ is the father of a baby girl, the daughter’s name has been revealed: Amabella!
Despite trying to keep the news underwraps, the 33-year-old Jersey Shore star was forced to announce on Tuesday that he is now a dad – with a woman whom Pauly didn't have a previous relationship.
"The baby is a few months old now," the pal reveals.
This is the first child for Pauly D.
Although the first-pumping, gelled-up DJ wasn’t planning to take on fatherhood so soon, he’s “excited” to be a daddy.
“He’s going to be a big part of his daughter’s life,” a source told Radar. “He’s ready to take responsibility.”
