Looks like Snooki's son Lorenzo has a new playmate! Jersey Shore star Pauly D is now a father to a baby girl, he confirmed to TMZ on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The reality star and DJ (real name: Paul DelVecchio) recently welcomed a child with a former fling.

Although the ex has yet to be named, TMZ says she's 26, and that the pair hooked up in Las Vegas and that she currently resides with the little one in New Jersey.

"I'm proud I'm a father," Pauly D told TMZ. "I am excited to embark on this new part of my life." (TMZ reports that the star took a paternity test, and that he has already accepted responsibility for the little girl, who was born a few months ago.)

It's the first child for the MTV star. His castmate Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is mom to Lorenzo, nearly 14 months, with fiance Jionni LaValle.
