JWoww is pregnant! The Jersey Shore star (real name: Jenni Farley) and her husband, Roger Mathews, announced the baby news at their wedding Sunday night.
As E! Online reports, JWoww and longtime beau Mathews tied the knot on the Jersey Shore on Sunday night in a small ceremony in front of friends and family. Among those in attendance were old friends and cast mates Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, and Deena Nicole Cortese, as well as JWoww and Roger’s 15-month-old daughter, Meilani Alexandra, who also served as flower girl.
JWoww and Roger have been a thing since they began dating during the third season of Jersey Shore, according to the Newark Star-Ledger. They’ve continued dating through the rest of the Jersey Shore run and its spinoff Snooki & JWoww, an appearance on WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp, and the birth of their first child. Roger popped the question in 2012, so it’s taken the happy couple a while to finally tie the proverbial knot.
“At my rehearsal dinner I was given the most priceless gift I could ever receive…
My cousin @speedyapril gave me my grandparents wedding rings with the first letter my grandmother ever received from my Opa during WW2. I cried like a baby.”
Before their wedding this weekend, JWoww praised Roger for always being there for her and for being a good dad to their daughter.
“Roger is my perfect man in every way and he is the best daddy to Meilani that I could ever ever ask for. He accepts me in every way and I am more in love with him than ever!”
The happy bride was also the subject of some good-natured ribbing from her pal Snooki, who accused JWoww of being a “Bridezilla” before the wedding.
“I think I’m staying as relaxed as I can be with the wedding just four nights away!! I think other brides would be freaking out way more than I am, just saying lol! Everything is coming together and now I am at the point where I am just excited to have the day come so I can celebrate it with all my family and friends.”
During the wedding after-party, JWoww and Roger surprised their guests with more news: they’re pregnant! Jenni confirmed her pregnancy to E! News.
“This was one of the hardest secrets to keep but it was one of the most memorable parts of our wedding! 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.”
Just how well JWoww and Roger hid their pregnancy is a matter of debate, though. More than one fan told JWoww via Instagram that he or she noticed a baby bump a few days ago.
“I comment on your Facebook post of your wedding rehearsal pics that I didn’t wanna disrespect but I saw a little tummy n I was wondering if you were pregnant! I guess I was right! Yeah congrats for you, your now husband n your precious little girl! Amazing!”
JWoww and Roger’s new baby will be the latest addition to the new generation of Jersey Shore citizens. Pauly D (Paul DelVechhio) has been embroiled in a custody battle with the mother of his daughter, and Snooki and her husband, Jionni LaValle, are the proud parents of two kids, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle and Giovanna Marie LaValle.
As of this post, JWoww and Roger have not divulged how far into her pregnancy Jenni is, nor have they publicly talked about any possible names for the new baby.
