Jersey Shore's Pauly D. is a Dad

Pauly D. is DTF: Down to Father. The Jersey Shore star tells TMZ that a baby conceived with a 26-year-old woman last year in Las Vegas is indeed his. The mother has filed court papers in New Jersey to establish paternity, but the 33-year-old aspiring DJ has already stepped up to the plate, saying, “I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life." Although he reportedly doesn’t have a relationship with the mother, a source told E! News that “is hoping to develop” one. How refreshingly responsible.
