There’s only one gal on DJ Pauly D’s mind today: His 5-month-old daughter, Amabella.

The Jersey Shore star finally got to meet his baby girl on Wednesday afternoon and has all the exclusive details.

“He flew home early from Vegas and hasn’t stopped talking about how she’s the first girl to steal his heart,” a source told of the Nov. 6 meeting.

“He’s overjoyed!"

Until now, the MTV star has claimed the baby’s mother, Amanda Markert, wouldn’t allow him unsupervised visitation rights.

But the pair finally agreed to meet on Wednesday at an undisclosed, “natural” location in New Jersey, the source revealed.

“Pauly bought Amabella a bunch of toys and clothes,” the insider said.

Pauly and Markert remain locked in a custody battle.

Sources tell that Pauly filed for full custody just weeks before the story went public.

Amabella currently lives in New Jersey with her mom, a former Hooters waitress who had a one-time hookup with Pauly D in Las Vegas last year.

Pauly D is said to have no problem caring for the child financially, but wants to maintain custody in Vegas, where he resides.

“He knows she’ll be safe with him and his family," the source added.

"He’s already built a nursery for Amabella and is excited for this next chapter in his life."

As previously reported, the 33-year-old spinner revealed he is ready to step up and take responsibility.

“Sometimes in life things aren’t planned and they may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing, that is how I feel about having a daughter,” he said in a statement to

“I’m looking forward to being a parent to her.”
