Pregnant Deena Cortese Cradles Baby Bump, Reveals Cravings

Deena Cortese is already counting down the days until she gets to meet her baby boy. The pregnant Jersey Shore star showed off her growing baby bump – and revealed she’s 14 weeks into her pregnancy – via Instagram on Wednesday, July 4.

“Excited to share our pregnancy journey with all of you!! Our first bump pic,” she wrote. “Don’t worry I won’t post bump pics every single week! Lol but this is the first!!”

A possible nod to her baby-to-be, Cortese wore blue as she cradled her stomach. She stood next to a chart that noted that her son-to-be is as large as a lemon and that she’s feeling “tired but excited.”

As for what she’s craving? Forget the pickles. The reality star, 31, loves fruit, candy and ice pops at the moment.

“STOP MY LITTLE BUMP,” Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wrote in the comments section. “I am so fricken happy for you my meatball. I love you.”

Cortese and her husband, Chris Buckner, announced last week that they are expecting their first child together. “We are truly blessed and our hearts are filled with so much joy and happiness. December can’t come soon enough!” she wrote at the time. “Daddy and Mommy can’t wait to meet you Christopher John. You are going to be the most spoiled little boy ever!!!!”

The couple tied the knot in October 2017.
