From GTL to D-A-D! Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s girlfriend, Jen Harley, is pregnant and expecting their first child, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
The Jersey Shore alum, 32, tells Us that the couple are having a girl and Harley is six months along. Though he jokes that “every guy wants a boy,” he grew up with sisters, so he’s “used to being around girls.”
While Harley is already mom to an 11-year-old son, Ortiz-Magro has turned to his costars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio and Jenni “JWoww” Farley for parenting advice. “They all went through different experiences, which is great,” he tells Us.
Ortiz-Magro began dating Harley earlier this year after his February split from Famously Single costar Malika Haqq. Their relationship first made headlines in July after Ortiz-Magro injured his hand during a night out in Las Vegas. “He did not get into a fight,” his rep told Us at the time. “He was with his girlfriend at TAO and a scuffle broke out around him and a glass got broken on his hand.”
Since then, Ortiz-Magro and his lady love have documented their low-key romance on their Instagram accounts. She shared a sweet photo with him during a date at a New York Yankees game in The Bronx, New York, on September 19. “First #yankeegame #nyc,” she captioned the post.
The news of Ortiz-Magro’s pending fatherhood comes shortly after MTV announced that the cast of Jersey Shore will reunite for a 2018 show titled Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Polizzi, Delvecchio, Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will join Ortiz-Magro in the spinoff. Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola declined to return.
