As reported by E! News on Tuesday, Oct. 22, the former Jersey Shore star welcomed a daughter, Amabella, several months ago.  Pauly D also confirmed via Twitter that fathered his first child with Amanda Markert, a former Hooters waitress.

The 33-year-old musician  DJ and the 25-year-old hostess met through a mutual friend at Las Vegas’ Rehab dayclub in August 2012.  Pauly D and Markert went on to hook up that night which resulted in child.

Pauly D and Markert “didn’t have a previous relationship,” a source told E! News, but the new dad was “hoping to develop” one with his New Jersey-based baby mama. “[He] wasn’t exactly planning for it to happen this way,” said a source, “but God works in mysterious ways.”  Pauly D reiterated that point on Twitter.

 

 

Of course, that was before the parents got into an alleged custody battle. According to TMZ, Markert is seeking child support from her hookup.  Pauly D, meanwhile, is looking to gain some level of custodial rights as he is yet to even meet his daughter who was born in May.

After Pauly D’s paternity made headlines,  Markert accused the media of exploiting their daughter. “People should be ashamed involving an infant,” she tweeted.  “I can’t understand how and why people are so cruel and negative!  My goodness, give it up already!”

Congrats to Pauly D!  Hopefully the two parents will put differences aside and do what is best for the child.
