Pauly D Welcomes Lovechild: 'Jersey Shore' Alum Reportedly Ready To Sue For Custody
Pauly D, formally known as Paul DelVecchio, recently became a proud father to a baby girl named Amabella Sophia.
Jersey Shore alum Pauley D, 33, is “very excited” about his new fatherhood, as he’s “always wanted kids,” a source told E! News. While Pauley and the mother Amanda Markert were not in a serious relationship prior to the pregnancy, the reality star and DJ reportedly hopes to establish some kind of relationship with the woman who gave birth to his daughter back in May.
"[He] wasn't exactly planning for it to happen this way, but God works in mysterious ways,” said a source who added that Pauly “is ready to jump in and take responsibility as a father.”
Pauly, who acknowledged that the baby is in fact his, is allegedly looking to fight for custody of his daughter. The entertainer reportedly does not think that Markert, who has worked at Hooters and is mother to another child, is a fit to raise Amabelle. Furthermore, Pauly believes that Amabelle might be keen to make as much money off of his as she can. Corroborating that claim is photo showing the infant sitting in a highchair that’s table is covered in $100s removed from obtained by TMZ.

"I am excited to embark on this new part of my life." He’s yet to comment on the potential for an ensuing custody battle.
