It’s a reunion! Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has introduced his 5-month-old son Romeo to the cast of Jersey Shore. The MTV star, 39, reconnected with his pals and documented the festivities on Instagram on Thursday, Oct. 21, captioning the post, “Meet the family.”
Pauly DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi are featured in the carousel of images, along with Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s son Greyson Valor, 5, and Deena’s son Christopher John, 2. Mike shared a second post from the “family” time on Thursday that featured Romeo and Deena’s second son Cameron Theo, 5 months, excitedly staring at each other. “I’m not crying you are,” Mike captioned the sweet post.
Mike and his wife Lauren Pesce welcomed Romeo, full name Romeo Reign, in May. The childhood sweethearts, who wed in 2018, first announced they were expecting in November 2020. The happy news came after Lauren revealed in 2019 that she suffered a miscarriage about seven weeks into her pregnancy. “It was heart-wrenching,” she said while on Good Morning America’s Strahan, Sara and Keke. “I didn’t want to hold this in. I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process.”
The pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage came a month after Mike was released from prison in September 2019. He served an eight month sentence for tax evasion. Mike and Lauren’s rep released the following statement to HollywoodLife at the time: “We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort. We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations!”
Despite the loss, Mike and Lauren remained hopeful, telling PEOPLE in 2019 that they would try for another baby. “We’re definitely trying again,” Mike told the outlet. “We’re excited to move forward in that chapter of our lives. Hopefully, it happens and once it does it will definitely be a blessing.”
