JWoww has a daughter! The reality television star and her beau, Roger Mathews, welcomed a baby girl on Saturday, July 12. According to E! Online, the couple named their little girl Meilani Alexandra. The baby came into the world just hours after reports that Jenni Farley got induced. Everyone is doing well post-birth, and the couple is so excited to share their baby joy with the world.
A rep for the couple said:
“Jenni and Roger are so excited to welcome the newest guidette Meilani Alexandra Mathews to the world weighing seven pounds and 13 ounces. Meilani and her parents are doing great and are happy and healthy. Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells.”
JWoww’s daughter will live with her mom and dad in New Jersey. It is believed that she will be featured on upcoming episodes of Snooki & JWoww, just as Snooki’s son Lorenzo is (Snooki is pregnant with her second child, a girl). JWoww recently told People Magazine that her daughter and Snooki’s daughter are going to be closer than BFFs — they’re going to be sisters! It’s only a matter of time before the little ones are in their bikinis and beaching it at the shore with their parents!
JWoww and Roger went back and forth about having a baby, but both of them seemed over the moon when they found out that they were going to become parents. They became engaged in 2012 but didn’t plan much of their wedding — and a little over a year later, they had baby news. It is unknown if the two have any plans to wed anytime soon. For now, they will likely focus on their little girl.
Today Roger tweeted:
She is here! Meilani Alexandra Mathews 7lbs 13 ounces. Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. Im Humbled.

MTV released the following statement:
“We’re fist pumping in celebration of Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley and Roger Mathews’ new baby girl Meilani Alexandra Mathews. We’re so excited for the new parents and to welcome the newest member to the MTV family.”
JWoww became pregnant with her daughter around the holidays and made the announcement online with a holiday card of sorts that showed the baby’s first ultrasound photo. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Twitter exploded when the announcement was made.
Many congratulations go out to Jenni and Roger — welcome to the world, Meilani!
