Reality star Mike Sorrentino, known as “The Situation” on the Jersey Shore reality show, has welcomed his first child with his wife Lauren Sorrentino, née Pesce. Both Mike and Lauren posted pictures sharing all the news about the newest addition to their family. The couple announced they were expecting this past November.

Mike and Lauren are now the parents of a baby boy! They had previously revealed their child’s gender in December 2020, a month after sharing they were expecting. The couple chose to name their son Romeo Reign Sorrentino. To caption their photos, the couple simply shared the name of their son. Mike did, however, leave a comment on Lauren’s post writing, “I’m not crying you are 😢 😍😘”

The couple created an Instagram account for their son where they documented Lauren’s pregnancy. In Romeo’s birth announcement post on this page, further details about his arrival were shared. He was born on May 26, 2021. He weighed 6lbs 8oz and was 19 inches at birth.

Mike and Lauren met years ago while attending community college together. They were both in the same math class. When Mike began shooting Jersey Shore, the couple took a break. After the show wrapped, they reconnected and dated for four years before finally tying the knot. The couple was wed on November 1, 2018, at The Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains, New Jersey. Mike proposed on Valentine’s Day that same year and fans of the Jersey Shore got to watch the engagement unfold on the reunion series Jersey Shore: Family Vacation the following June.

Congratulations to Mike and Lauren on welcoming their first child into the world! We hope they are thoroughly enjoying being parents to Romeo.
