Lauren Manzo has finally given birth! The ‘RHONJ’ star has officially welcomed a precious baby girl with her hubby Vito Scalia, and just like that, the reality TV couple are first-time parents! Even better, the family has already shared two pics of their adorable new addition, and our hearts are melting!
WHAT a cutie! Lauren Manzo, 28, is a new mom, and we are so psyched for the reality star and her husband Vito Scalia. The two announced their daughter’s birth on Feb. 24 by taking to Instagram to share a first pic of the infant, and we are already in love! “My Markie Girl 💗,” the Real Housewife captioned the adorable photo, which features Lauren holding her daughter in her hospital bed. The tiny girl’s eyes are closed in the pic as she dozes off in her mother’s arms. And as for her name, we’re guessing “Markie” is just a nickname.
Albie Manzo also posted a pic of the little cutie, taking to Instagram to express his love. “& the world, turn it inside out,” he wrote beside a photo of himself holding baby “Markie.” And while Lauren and Vito couldn’t wait to meet their precious infant, it seems like the baby couldn’t wait to meet THEM either! After all, the child arrived four days early! Lauren’s original due date, which she announced during an appearance on Bravo’s The Daily Dish in November, was Feb. 26.
“I’m due February 26, and there’s only 28 days in February and it’s a first pregnancy, so I’m kind of saying it’s going to be the beginning of March,” Lauren revealed at the time, sitting beside her mom, Caroline Manzo. But at first, Lauren was NOT thrilled about her due date, admitting that she didn’t want her daughter to be a pieces. “I butt heads with Pisces because Pisces are sensitive and I don’t have time for that,” she said.
Lauren and Vito tied the knot back in July 2015 and we are so happy they’ve decided to start a family! Their daughter seriously could not be cuter — congrats again, you two!
