Hotel grants couple 18 years of free stays on Valentine’s Day for making a baby

Let’s travel back in time to February 14 — Valentine’s Day.

A hip little hotel in British Columbia offered couples the chance to win 18 years of free accommodations if, roughly nine months following their Hotel Zed stay, they had a baby.

Nicole and Alexander Beshinsky and their three-and-half-year-old son are getting ready to welcome a new member to the family.

The Kelowna-based couple took advantage of Hotel Zed’s “Nooner” special this past February 14. Although Hotel Zed, which also has locations in Victoria and Tofino, has offered the four-hour “Nooner” special for the past five years, 2020 was the first year of this particular promotion.

The deal, which encouraged couples to check in from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for some nookie, followed some post-coital ping-pong in the lounge or perhaps a sexy soak in the outdoor hot tub, was a first for the Beshinskys.

It was also their first time staying at Hotel Zed.

The couple say they don’t even always get a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day, owing to work conflicts and other challenges. Nicole calls the Nooner package “a great Valentine’s idea for parents because it makes childcare a little easier.”

Indeed, Hotel Zed CEO Mandy Farmer came up with the original Nooner idea when her kids were little, and she was struggling to find quality, child-free time with her husband. The prospect of a romantic tryst on February 14 was more appealing to her than a bouquet of carnations or a box of chocolates, so she took the idea to the board and they ran with it.

As to 2020’s baby-making incentive? Well, it seemed like a fun twist — the holiday is notoriously known for engagements, so why not conceptions?

“I don’t think we’re going to convince someone who’s not thinking about having a baby to have a baby. But if you’re serious about expanding your family, why wouldn’t you try?” Farmer asks. “If you succeed, you’ll win a way to celebrate your baby’s conception for the next 18 years.”

In addition to the 18 years of free stays, the Beshinsky family also lucked out with a free photo shoot so excited about their campaign’s results was the hotel.

Via email, Nicole said: “We had been trying to get pregnant for almost two years, so we thought we would raise stakes with the contest. Apparently all we needed was a little competition!”

Deena Cortese’s second pregnancy is featured on ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ 

After the drama surrounding Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding ceremony last year and an unpredictable 2020, Cortese shared good news in an early episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4. She and her husband Chris Buckner are expecting another baby. 

“We’re so excited to announce we’re expecting Baby Buckner #2 May 1, 2021,” Cortese shared on Twitter. “Our hearts are filled with so much love and joy! CJ is going to be the best big brother ever!!! #blessed #growingfamily sooo for everyone that was asking YES YES YES ..I’m pregnant.”

Many Jersey Shore fans were excited to learn that the Sorrentinos had conceived. After learning of Lauren’s previous miscarriage, fans couldn’t wait for the Sorrentinos to start trying again.

“He’s come such a long way since Jersey Shore first aired,” a fan said on Reddit. “I feel like a proud parent (even though he’s well over ten years older than me).”

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s children have all been part of ‘Jersey Shore’

When Jersey Shore started more than 10 years ago, the series was about a group of guidos and guidettes who spent their summers partying in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. But as the roommates got older, their agendas changed. Eventually, many of them got married and started having families of their own. 

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Ronnie Ortiz Magro have all allowed their children to be part of Jersey Shore and Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, however briefly. Cortese and now the Sorrentino’s are also sharing their little ones with fans.

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.
