“Baby No. 2 is official!! We are expecting and couldn’t be more excited,” Farley and Mathews told Us at the time. “A wedding that was beyond a dream come true and baby No. 2 on the way, we couldn’t ask for more. We are on cloud nine!”
“This was one of the hardest secrets to keep but it was one of the most memorable parts of our wedding!” Farley added. “The reaction from everyone was priceless. Roger and I only told our publicist and our nanny that we were expecting, so to watch everyone’s face when Roger announced it was priceless.”
Farley revealed the sex of her baby in a post on her website in October. Jenni, who is already a mom to 21-month-old daughter Meilani Alexandra (Meilani will celebrate her second birthday on July 13), revealed in the post that she had always wanted a boy.

In the same post, Farley admitted she was excited to have both a son and a daughter, just like her best friend, and former Jersey Shore co-star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

“It’s amazing knowing that we are having one of each, just like Nicole. I’ve always said I wanted a boy. I think there is something to be said about a mother-and-son bond. I can’t wait for us to meet him and I know Meilani’s going to be an awesome, protective big sister. I’m so happy they’re going to grow up close in age and now the countdown really begins!”
On April 25, JWoww teased on Twitter that she plans on sharing photos of her new bundle of joy on her new app. Farley tweeted: “Download my new app! I’ll be posting EXCLUSIVE pics of my little man when he arrives! http://apple.co/1VU9Bqu”
