Jenni “JWoww” Farley and her husband, Roger Mathews, welcomed a son today!  The reality TV star took to her website with the announcement. “Roger’s and my son is here. He arrived at 6:03 pm weighing 7lbs 2 oz and we could not be more in love. The craziest part about this whole thing is Roger got to deliver our son!  Super tired now…but promise I will tell you guys more soon…”

Prior to her son’s arrival, the former Jersey Shore star had told OK! that she was struggling with choosing a boy’s name.  “I cannot figure out my son’s name; Roger and I cannot agree… It’s been the hardest thing. Before I even had Roger I had my daughter’s name!”

Farley and Mathews are already parents to a daughter named Meilani Alexandra who was born on July 13, 2014.  The couple first revealed that they were expecting a second child at their wedding in October.  During their reception, Roger unveiled an oversized photograph of Meilani with the words, “I’m going to be a BIG SISTER!! May 2016.” JWoww shared the photo on Instagram and wrote, “Such an amazing feeling to be able to surprise our friends and family!!”

The couple met while JWoww was filming Jersey Shore and became engaged in 2012.  Castmates in attendance at the wedding included Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Pauly D.  Not long after the wedding, JWoww announced that they were expecting a baby boy.
