It looks like the Jersey Shore family is growing by one more as Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, and his wife, Lauren announced they are expecting a baby in May 2021.

The Instagram announcement had the words “Baby Sorrentino May 2021” written in flour next to Christmas tree cookie cutters. Lauren captioned the photo with the words, “Our biggest blessing is on it’s way.”

Mike’s Jersey Shore roommates were quick to comment with their excitement for the couple.

Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio commented, “Now that’s a situation my dude!!!!”

Vinny Guadagnino posted, “Errrhhhhh meerrrrr gerrrrrddddd!!!!”

Even Snooki, who did not film with the cast this season, left a congratulatory message and said, “LOVE YOU BOTH soooo Soooo excited for you!”

Mike and Lauren’s journey

Mike and Lauren have been married for two years this month, and have been vocal about their desire to have a baby.

Just last week during the Season 4 premiere, Mike and Lauren met with a fertility doctor.

Lauren revealed the couple had become pregnant right after Mike returned from prison, but it, unfortunately, ended in miscarriage.

Mike explained during a confessional interview that having a child with Lauren was on his bucket list, and said he was desperate to become a father.

Two new additions to the Shore family

Mike and Lauren’s child will not be the only new addition to the Shore Family.  Their announcement comes weeks after co-star Deena Cortese announced she was expecting her second child with her husband, Chris Buckner.

Deena’s pregnancy was also announced on Instagram and was followed by the news she was having another boy after hosting a Halloween themed gender reveal party.

In the preview of future episodes, Deena is shown announcing her pregnancy to her roommates by holding a towel that read “I’m pregnant.”

The Jersey Shore cast is continuing to grow their families, and the dynamics have changed quite a bit since they started 10 years ago. Long nights of partying are now being replaced with family dinners and diaper changes.

The new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation filmed the cast along with their significant others and immediate family members, which will allow fans to see a different side of their Jersey Shore favorites.

Mike and Lauren have yet to announce the gender of their baby. Their pregnancy journey may play out as the new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation continues.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8/7c on MTV.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation premiere date announced — Here’s what to expect, when to tune in and how they are staying safe

MTV has announced the premiere date for Season 4 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

The network is also unveiling what fans can expect from the new format that ensures all cast and crew are safe amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Like so many other reality television shows, Jersey Shore Family Vacation was tasked with finding a safe way to return to filming. Big Brother and Love Island created a bubble where everyone involved with the show was placed for the duration of filming.

MTV has a similar plan for the hit reality TV show, which means fans won’t have to wait too much longer for the new season.

How is MTV keeping cast and crew safe?

The network has revealed the production is taking over a resort to create a “Shore Bubble” for the cast and crew.

TMZ has reported everyone involved with the reality TV show is currently in Nevada in quarantine and is tested regularly for COVID-19.

Production is following all the correct local, state, and federal COVID-19 regulations for health and safety to ensure the show can film without issue.

The Season 4 cast includes Deena Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Angelina Pivarnick, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. Unlike other seasons, extended family members of the cast will stay with them in the shore bubble.

It will be the first season without original cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who decided to leave the show after the dramatic Season 3 finale. Snooki wanted to focus more on her family instead of Jersey Shore Family Vacation antics.

When does Season 4 premiere and what can fans expect from the show?

Mark your calendars! Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 4 premieres on Thursday, November 19 at 8/7c on MTV. The network will air two specials on Thursday, November 5 and Thursday, November 12 at 8/7c to get fans pumped for the new season.

The last time viewers saw the Jersey Shore crew was at Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding. Fans will recall it ended with Snooki, JWoww, and Deena roasting Angelina in a wedding toast that left the bride in tears.

Season 4 picks up with Vinny, Pauly, Mike, and Ronnie, working to mend the fractured family by bringing the group together again. The guys hope creating a safe bubble space will help reunite the girls and fix their broken Jersey Shore family.

Besides the current health climate, the guys felt having extended family members at the resort might make the reunion a little smoother. It is Jersey Shore, so that might be wishful thinking on Pauly, Mike, Ronnie, and Mike’s part.
