Reality star Deena Cortese, known for appearing on the MTV series Jersey Shore has announced that she and her husband are expecting their second child together!

Deena posted a Halloween themed photo to share the exciting news. Deena and her husband, Christopher Buckner, stood with their son on their porch, which was decorated with pumpkins, mums, hay, and more while wearing Halloween-themed shirts. Their new bundle of joy will be arriving in May of 2021.

Deena and Christopher share a one-year-old son, Christopher, together who is named after his father. The reality star refers to her firstborn as CJ.

Earlier this year, Deena responded to criticism she was receiving online about the way CJ walks. “CJ has Metatarsus Adductus.. and will be getting night braces to get it corrected .. he’s had it since he was born but we noticed it at 10 months when he started walking .. the doctor says it’s common and we’ve been on top of it .. unfortunately his right foot has an extreme case and he literally can not get a shoe on .. that is why CJ isn’t in shoes and just socks and booties.” She has since been keeping her followers updated on his progress.

Deena and Chris married in October 2017 after Chris popped the question less than a year prior in November of 2016. Their wedding was attended by many of Deena’s Jersey Shore co-stars. Congratulations to Deena and Chris on growing their family!
