“Jersey Shore” cast member Pauly D (Paul DelVecchio) can now call himself a dad. He found out today (Tuesday Oct. 22) that he is the father to a baby girl he shares with a woman from a fling he had last year. 

The reality show star told TMZ that he is proud to be a father. What’s next for him? The 26-year-old mother resides in New Jersey.  He seems to want to be around his daughter, despite his baby mamma living in NJ while he resides in Rhode Island, and travels to Las Vegas for DJ gigs. 

His reality show co-star, Snooki (Nicole Polizzi), had her son Lorenzo last year. Her 14-month old son not only has a “Jersey Shore” mommy, but now has a fellow “Jersey Shore” baby buddy.

Could this be a reason to bring back the “Jersey Shore” cast together for a reunion series? 

Snooki and JWoww continue to successfully entertain their fans on MTV. Vinny Guadagnino also has his own show, titled “The Show With Vinny,” which aired May 2013 and ended its first season in July. Pauly D’s reality show, “Pauly D Project,” has not been renewed for its second season. 

It looks as if this could be the perfect time to start filming again. Fans of the “Jersey Shore” cast will want to follow Pauly D throughout this change in his life. No doubt he will be a part of the other cast members' reality shows. 

Though Pauly D’s reality show was unsuccessful, his career as a DJ brings him the big bucks. His successful career with music may have the potential to ruin his future relationship with his daughter. Similarly, being unable to travel and DJ to spend time with his daughter can ruin his career. Surely this will be a dilemma on his reality show if it continues for a second season, or on his ex co-stars’ shows. Either way, Pauly D will be in the reality show spotlight again.
